ChandaCertified Veterinary Technician and Hospital Administrator
Ever since she was a child, Chanda Holschbach had a passion for learning about, helping and loving animals. Her mother's nursing background laid a foundation of "bedside manner" and her father's entrepreneurial business background provided a real understanding of economics.

Her strong understanding of the business end of the clinic, in addition to her hands-on work with families and their pets, created the perfect recipe for Chanda to pursue the next level of patient care.
