Melinda Fowler, Practice Manager
Hi there, I have had the pleasure of being the Practice Manger at Quail Ridge Animal Hospital since Aug. of 2006. My husband John & I have the joy of sharing our home with our furry family in the beautiful Carson Valley & we are lucky enough to have our daughter Sydney and granddaughter MacKenzie living close by so we can share in all their special moments. What originally drew me to Quail Ridge was the sense of compassion as well as quality of care exhibited by the Drs. & staff as I rushed my little Chihuahua, Marley, in for emergency care so many years ago. I knew then as a client, that this is where I wanted to grow my professional career. A Veterinary Hospital built on pride and compassion, in a professional setting. I brought with me a strong background & education in business management, public relations, positive leadership, and a belief that a successful business can be managed with compassion, empathetic views for clients & team members in a fun environment.
Our family (two & four legged) & friends are very important to us, so we like to spend our extra time together. During the summer you can find us at Lake Tahoe boating, kayaking, golfing, shooting or just hanging out BBQing with friends. We are truly blessed.
