Mekalea recently joined our clinic in November 2019. She graduated at Hawkeye Community College in May 2016, earning her associate’s degree. Shortly after, her fiance and herself moved to Minneasota from Iowa. She hopes to attend school so she can become a CVT in the future. Since starting working with the team, she has enjoyed building a relationship with the clients and learning all the unique quirks of each pet that come through our doors.

When not at the clinic, Mekalea spends her time with her Domestic Longhair, Kollin, and Labrador/Collie mix, Surly. They typically spend the days cuddled up with Mekalea as she reads a book or plays video games


Lindsey has been a Client Care Coordinator and CLVC since May 2021. Animal care has always been an important and therapeutic part of my life. I grew up in northern MN on a farm raising rabbits in 4-H. I live in South Saint Paul with my fiancé. We have 3 cats, 1 rabbit, and a very spoiled senior Shih Tzu. After recently buying a house my goal is to start fostering senior animals through a local rescue. In my free time you will find me working on house projects and my beautiful garden.
