ChandaCertified Veterinary Technician and Hospital Owner
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.
A graduate of the University of Minnesota with a degree in Animal Health, family ties brought Chanda back to Wisconsin. She began her tenure at Packerland in 1993 and purchased the clinic in 2007.
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.
