Dr. Melissa has had a long rewarding career in veterinary medicine. She surrounds herself with an amazingly talented and compassionate staff.Her strong points involve listening to the client. They are the direct line to the patient. Much information is collected from this strong bond.

She finds enormous satisfaction in working up the routine surgical and medical cases, but loves to be challenged by second opinions and more difficult cases.

Dr. Melissa has very little free time, but when she does, she likes to hang out with her loving husband and two grown sons. She cannot wait for grandchildren- until then she is blessed with a grand dog and grand cat.

Dr. Ken graduated from Kansas State University of Veterinary Medicine in 1995. He worked at several small animal clinics in Madison and Dane County before accepting a position as the Chief Staff Veterinarian at the Humane Animal Welfare Society (HAWS) in Waukesha, where he has been for the past 16 years. He joined the staff at the Noble Hound to utilize his surgery and medical expertise in a private clinic setting, in addition to remaining part-time at HAWS.

Ken has one daughter, Anya, who is attends Macalester College in St. Paul Minnesota, and his wife, Natalie, is a professor at UW-Madison in their Master of Science in Biotechnology Program. He and his family currently have three dogs named Annabelle, Kaspar, and Atticus, and two Love Birds named Ifa and Kinda.

Ken loves spending time with his family, and in his free time can be found walking the dogs in their east side Madison neighborhood, riding his bike, swimming, playing volleyball, doing yoga, or cheering on the Nebraska Cornhuskers, Wisconsin Badgers, or Green Bay Packers. His favorite is watching the UW Women’s Volleyball team.

Dr. Kelsey is a graduate from St. George’s University (January 2018). She earned her Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science with a Science Emphasis from University of Wisconsin Platteville in 2013. She has always enjoyed working with animals and becoming a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine has been a life-long dream of hers.

Dr. Kelsey grew up and resides in the Reedsburg area. She and her husband, Eric, have three dogs and two cats at home; Boomer, Bucky, Buster, Bogo, and Mittens that they absolutely adore! Bucky and Buster made the trip back to the USA with Dr. Kelsey when she left the island of Grenada (where she attended veterinary school).

In her free time, Dr. Kelsey enjoys spending her time with her family and friends. They like to go four-wheeling, hiking, fishing, and enjoy the outdoors, but she also enjoys reading a good book on a rainy day, or relaxing at her family’s cabin. As long as she’s surrounded by her loved ones and her dogs, she’s happy!

She has 3 children, 2 dogs, and 3 grand dogs that she babysits for. She is an avid Brewers fan and takes her dog Remi to “Bark in the Park” each year.

Starr has been a receptionist here since April of 2018. She loves her job up at the front desk because it lets her play with animals all day, without having to stick and poke them.

While she considers herself much more of a dog person, she did take home a kitten who had come to us for treatment from a feral rescue group. Her name is Nina and she’s now living the spoiled life with her older brother Oliver.

Robbi joined our team in fall of 2018. Robbi loves cats but loves her own cats even more: Ninny (pictured, 7 years old) and a kitten Wilma who is 2 months old. Robbi loves going to music festivals, enjoys anything involving the outdoors, and loves animals of all kinds - we’re lucky to have you on board Robbi!
