Professional, knowledgeable and compassionate

We pride ourselves on our extremely capable and knowledgeable staff.  We are always learning and strongly emphasize continuing education in all aspects of medical care as well as nutrition and behavior.

To paraphrase a quote by Roger Caras: Animals are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.  Our lives are happily centered around living and working with animals.  This includes not only our four-legged family members, but also our rescue and foster efforts.



Our Doctors and Administration

Dr. Richard Kohlmann: 


Dr. Kohlmann's past work experience includes serving as a dairy veterinarian in Pennsylvania, teaching physiology at Purdue University and training dogs for obedience classes.  He started Westfield Veterinary Care as a house-call practice.  What has always drawn him to this field is the opportunity to help people care for their pets.  By providing the community with a veterinary care facility that can provide personable, quality care that is reasonably priced, we bridge the gap between low-cost clinics and the expense of twenty-four hour hospital care.  He enjoys projects, bicycling, gardening, fishing and aquariums.

Dr. Alicia Bundy:


A native of Arcadia, Indiana and a graduate of Purdue University, she has always enjoyed having animals in her life, from dressing the pet cat in doll clothes to caring for orphaned animals when younger. Dr Bundy has special interests in feline medicine, dermatology, behavior and dentistry.  She strives to provide excellent care, and to help educate pet owners about how to best care for their animal companions. She has also been actively involved with Indy Feral/FACE trap/neuter release program.  She enjoys drawing, painting, walking dogs, running and working out in her spare time.

Dr. Sarah Kronland:


Growing up in southern Indiana and wanting nothing more than to be a veterinarian, Purdue University was a clear choice for her. Once she graduated she moved to downtown Chicago where she completed a year in general practice followed by five years in emergency medicine. After the birth of her children, she and her family made the move back to the Hoosier state where she has been doing relief work for the past eight years. While she loves all aspects of veterinary medicine, she especially enjoys maintaining long term relationships with clients and their pets, and as such is excited to call WVC home. When she's not working she's either spending time with her family, exercising, reading, or gardening.

Dr. Anne Clayton:

Wanting to stay close to home, she pursued a B.A. in Biology from DePauw University. Then became the first boilermaker in her family (in a family of IU Hoosiers) when she graduated from Purdue Veterinary School. She remained at Purdue an additional semester working in the Veterinary Oncology department. She practiced in Zionsville until her kids were born, then started doing relief work for the Low Cost Spay Neuter clinic. Dr. Clayton was drawn to WVC for our reputation of being a relationship-based general practice. While she enjoys all aspects of Veterinary medicine, she has a primary interest in patient wellness, client education, and senior care. She and her veterinarian husband and their four sons, live on a mini farm with a menagerie of animals. For fun she does puzzles, photography, crafting, and boating.

Virginia Davis, Hospital Administrator:

    
Hospital administrator Virginia Davis first met Dr. Kohlmann as a housecall client. Upon learning he was building a clinic she asked, “How will you staff it?” The rest is history! Virginia studied in England with Jan Fennell, “The Dog Listener.”  She is a member of the Newfoundland Club of America as well as two regional Newfoundland clubs.  She actively shows their Newfoundlands in conformation throughout the US.  She co-chairs South Central Newfoundland Rescue (SCNR), a tri-state 501(c)3 rescue organization, and chairs the annual Christmas Tree Pull at Dull’s Tree Farm in Mechanicsburg, IN that benefits SCNR.  Please join us!

Shellie Stapleton, Operations Manager

I recently joined WVC in August 2019.  I had previously worked at WVC for 8 years as a Veterinary Assistant and left for a short stint.  I was thrilled when I was offered the opportunity to come back.  I enjoy assisting other staff members through new employee training and maintaining the flow of the clinic's day to day activities, as well as, provide direction on the facilities needs.  You will also see me in the exam rooms and surgery assisting doctors and patients.  Through the years at WVC, I've attended numerous Purdue Veterinary Conferences and various industry seminars. My previous property management experience along with my prior veterinary care experience has provided me my dream job.  When not at WVC, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends (both 2 and 4 leggers) walking and sometimes jogging on Hamilton County trails, quilting and reading.  I am so glad to be back in a place I love and working alongside those who have a passion for extraordinary pet care.



Veterinary Assistants and Clinic Receptionists

Mary with Daniel, her horse

Mary, Lead Assistant:


I joined the practice in 2002.  With my formal training mostly focused on equine, it seemed like a natural transition to focus on companion and small animals.  I have a Bachelor of Science in Equestrian Studies from the University of Findlay and since joining WVC have attended many continuing education courses, seminars and conferences over the years.  In addition to the day to day appointments, I find surgical nursing to be rewarding.  Behavioral counseling is another challenge I enjoy. When I am not at work, I train, ride and show Hunter Jumper's.  My other hobbies include running, yoga, evening outings with my husband or spending time with my standard poodles- Brees and Tarkington.

Tamara, Assistant:


I joined the practice in 2008.  It was my love of animals and wanting to pursue a career in veterinary medicine that drew me here.  In addition to my degree from IUPUI, I've attended a veterinary technician program and many continuing education classes.  I particularly enjoy working with some of the more reluctant patients, behavioral issues and seeing our sick patients walk out healthy.  I have fostered and rescued many dogs and cats.  I also work with autistic and special needs adults.

Sharon, Receptionist:


I joined the practice in 2009.  In my prior life, I was a hair stylist for over 13 years.  It was my deep love and interest in dogs and cats that guided me towards a new career at a veterinary specialty center.  After working there for several years, I was drawn to the idea of general practice which offers the opportunity for building long term relationships with clients and their pets. I found that in WVC!  I am especially interested in animal dermatology, which includes food and seasonal allergies. When I'm not at work, I enjoy spending time with my dogs Bella and Waffles, or you may also find me visiting Ohio State University and watching my son play Golf. 

 

Aria, Donna's most friendly hedge hog

Donna, Receptionist:


I joined the practice in 2010.  The practice I previously worked with closed and I'm happy to have found another clinic where people care about pets and their owners.  With over thirty years experience working at vet clinics as a receptionist, I continue to enjoy helping our wonderful clients.  Over the years I have had the opportunity to further my knowledge by attending many continuing education classes and state meetings.  When I am not working, my own menagerie beckons and calls. It includes multiple cats plus unusual pets like mice, sugar gliders, hedge hogs, a chameleon and a bearded dragon!

Suzy's long haired beautiful black cat named Clayton

Suzy, Assistant:


I first met the incredible staff at WVC in December 2010 as a client.  My many pets needed a new veterinary clinic and I immediately felt at home here.  In March 2012, I joined the WVC family as a veterinary assistant.  Since then, I have enjoyed building relationships with all of our clients and caring for their incredible animal companions.  I am particularly interested in cat behavior. At home, I find it very interesting the way that they interact with one another, our dogs and my family.  When I'm not working, my family and I spending a lot of time gardening or enjoying nature.  Our favorite family activity is camping

Melissa Profile

Marissa, Assistant:

I first became a part of Westfield Veterinary Care February of 2016. Since I was young I have always had a great interest in animals, and finally decided to dedicate my professional life to that passion. I previously worked at Riverview Health Hospital. I hope to apply my medical experience at WVC, but I also wish to further my knowledge and involvement with animals. In addition, I have been involved with the Our Lil' Bit of Heaven Animal Rescue for nearly a decade. When I am not fostering a dog from the OLBH rescue, you can find me coaching Westfield's freshman and sophomore girls' travel basketball team.  

Leia

Jenna, Receptionist:

I joined WVC in March of 2018. Since I was a child I've been drawn to animals and have always had a strong desire to work with them. My first experience in doing so was with my first dog - Otis, who was a black lab; together we participated in 4-H. Since then I have continued to seek work involving animal health. My experience ranges from PetSmart, to local boarding facilities and veterinary clinics. Through my work, my 9 year old son has also acquired a love of animals. In my spare time, I volunteer in the food pantry at my church. I also enjoy spending time with my family, which includes my two dogs; an American bulldog mix named Anakin and a pit mix named Leia.

Olaf
Crystal, Assistant:

I joined Westfield Veterinary Care at the end of July 2019.  I was drawn to this practice because it is small and has a family/home feeling that permeates throughout all the interactions of those working here.  That attitude and the quality of care, with the pet's best interest in mind, have made WVC a great place to work.  I have 3 years experience in working in the veterinary field.  I have worked with rescues all my life which has given me an array of experience with animals experiencing various health issues.  During my free time, I love to spend time with family, friends,  and animals, as well as, reading and watching Netflix.  I also like taking my dog to the dog park, going for walks and helping with the Indiana Reptile Expo by taking care of reptiles, birds, snakes, amphibians and rodents.

Valerie's Dogs
Valerie, Assistant's Aide

I joined the practice in July of 2019. I was drawn to this position because of my love for animals and people.  I am  a Senior at Westfield High School and will graduate February, 2020.  I have plans to attend IUPUI to pursue nursing.  I have a 11-year old Labrador Retriever named Max and a 3-year old Pit Bull named Callie who are perfect practice patients.  One aspect of my experience at WVC that I really enjoy are laboratory testing.  I enjoy learning about all aspects of the veterinary practice such as observing surgeries, caring for sick dogs and cats and the care that goes into helping new puppy owners in raising their companion. Being from Ukraine, I've been given the opportunity to pursue hiking and photography through my travels of Spain, France, Italy and many more places. 

Rocky the poodle
Amanda, Receptionist

I joined WVC in February of 2019; little did they know I had wanted to be a veterinarian since I could talk! I first met the staff when I brought my dogs in for a wellness exam and an assistant saw my curiosity for veterinary medicine throughout the appointment, and she handed me an application. I have been exposed to animals my whole life and have been on the path of veterinary Medicine for as long as I can remember, but sometimes life has a different plan for you. However, I still find that communicating with someone in regards to their pet is a personal strength for me and I'm glad I have the opportunity to continue to do that here at WVC. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my poodle, Rocky, and binge watching old re-runs of Friends.
