In the veterinary field for more than 27 years and with us from 1994 on, Louise claims to have retired in 2015. Yet she’s still in the office a lot.
A lifelong pet lover and owner, she and her husband, Rick, are the proud parents of two married daughters and six grandchildren. Now that the girls have flown the coop, their Vizsla, Spencer, runs the house.
A former president and member of the Saint Louis Zoo Docent Association since 1990, Louise volunteers as an animal handler and teacher for Zoo visitors. She’s also a nationally accredited member of the Association of Zoo and Aquarium Docents and has represented the Saint Louis Zoo in that organization. She chaired their National Conference in 2007.
