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 Admin

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 her family's Zionsville home, Dr. Clayton pursued a B.A. in Biology from DePauw University. Then, she 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. Afterwards, she practiced in Zionsville until her kids were born. From there, she started doing relief work for the Low Cost Spay Neuter clinic, where she's worked for a number of years. Dr. Clayton wanted to get back into general practice and has found that with WVC. She was drawn to us for our reputation of being a relationship-based practice. She's also been friends with Dr. Kronland since their very first day of vet school- over 20 years ago! 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!

Daniella, Operations Manager

I joined WVC in may 2015. I feel so lucky they decided to take me in, as I had no formal training in veterinary medicine, but I have always had an interest in the field of medicine. I was actually pre-med in college, until I changed my mind...4 times! I finally decided that if I couldn't graduate with a degree in everything, I would pick the best of everything and make my own degree - which I did. I graduated from DePauw University in 2013 with a degree in Industrial Design. How is that connected to Veterinary Medicine? It's not; but my thirst for knowledge is often quenched with the work I do here. I'm constantly learning new things, meeting new people, and interacting with wonderful animals. I actually started off as a veterinary assistant, until I transitioned to a managerial position. I do, however, continue, to work as an assistant part-time. In my spare time I enjoy traveling with my family and taking in as much of the world as I can. 



Veterinary Assistants and Clinic Receptionists

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.

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

Heather profile

Heather, Assistant:

I came to be a part of the WVC family in January of 2016. I am a recent graduate of the International Business College with a vet tech degree and am thrilled to have found a home at Westfield Veterinary Care. I have been drawn to working with animals since I was young and never gave up on my dream. Animal behavior has always been an interest because no animal is the same. It is difficult to know what they are thinking -- we must learn how to read them. In addition, I have found that while school taught me so much, it does not compare to the reality of working in a practice. In my spare time I am usually doing something with my two dogs, walking, training, or simply relaxing at home.

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, Assistant:

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.

Morgan Dog

Morgan, Assistant:

I joined Westfield Veterinary Care in June of 2018. I grew up participating in 4-H, where I worked with horses and companion animals. I went on to study biology at the University of South Alabama, where I participated in several veterinary studies; including-communicable  diseases in chickens, travel patterns in black-tip sharks, and cloning in livestock, to name a few. I spent most of my summers working on research boats for marine biology. Eventually, my interest in land animals brought me back home. I've worked closely with equine veterinarians, and I'm still actively involved with my horses. I periodically volunteer at Agape Therapeutic Riding Center. When I'm not busy raising my new poodle puppy, I enjoy horseback riding and bike rides.
