Cathy R. - Doggie Day Camp/Boarding Manager
I started my career working in veterinary clinics as a veterinary assistant in 1993. Since then I have worked as a technician, bookkeeper, office manager, practice manager and hospital manager.
In March of 2013 I left my hospital manager position after 19 years looking for something with less stress and more time to spend with my family. I found Forest Home Animal Clinic, in June of 2013, while looking for a nice place to board my two dogs for an upcoming vacation. Well, I found so much more. I found a new position as the Boarding/Doggie Day Camp manager, as well as a wonderful place to board my dogs. Dr. Rieser, Donna, and all of the staff here are friendly andeveryone is treated like part of the Rieser family. My dream job has always included finding a beautiful clinic with caring doctors and staff and boy, did I find it here!
On a personal side, I am married to my wonderful husband, Lee. I have a daughter, Heather, who lives in Durham, North Carolina, a son, Tim and his wife Sara who live in Muskego with their two sons, Oscar and Sam.
My “furry” kids are Bugsy and Ernie, two Buggs (Boston Terrier/Pug mixes). My “feathered” kid is Spaz, a 25 year old Congo African Gray parrot that I have raised since she was 10 weeks old. My interests include, reading, gardening, cooking, NASCAR (yes, I’m a redneck), and decorating cakes in my spare time.
Michelle F. - Doggie Day Camp/Boarding
Michelle started at FHAC in July 2013. She is very passionate about animals, and enjoys working with them every day. As one of our Doggie Day Camp Counselors, she looks forward to going to work and spending lots of time getting to know each of the dogs’ unique personalities.
She spends her free time with her family and her two handsome boys, Rockoo and Amor’e. Rockoo is a Fox-Jack Russell-Rat Terrier mix that she has had since he was 3 months old. Amor’e is a Golden Retriever whom she has had since he was three years old. She adopted Amor’e from a very dear and close friend.
She loves spending time outside with “her boys. They go for long walks around the neighborhood and on hiking trails, and they enjoy playing in the backyard for hours. She also enjoys bringing them to work with her so that they can attend Doggie Day Camp and play with the other campers and Camp Counselors.
