Alesia Riley, Certified Veterinary Technician

She graduated from the Rockford Career College Veterinary Technician Program in 2020 and has been with BEVC since July of 2021. In her free time some of the activities she likes to do are fishing, hunting, garden tractor pulling, hiking, camping and being outdoors.

Savannah, Clinic Cat

Savannah was a feral cat from Tyrol Basin. She came in for vaccinations and a spay, and we decided she was just too nice to go back outside. She has been VERY happy being an indoor only kitty. She is also, unfortunately, a junk food kitty, so we all work very hard to keep her from stealing potato chips and Cheetos. She enjoys playing computer games, chasing the laser light, and eating catnip! At first she spent a lot of time hiding, but now she is our official clinic greeter. Walmart, eat your heart out!

Leslie Parr, Owner, Certified Veterinary Technician

Leslie lives outside of Mt. Horeb with her husband Roger, horses Sawyer, Hawk, Rocky, Gus, Louie, and Vinnie, and Mac, their wonderful black lab. She graduated from MATC in the Veterinary Technician program in 1978. Leslie has worked as a Certified Veterinary Technician for many years in several clinics in Wisconsin. Her hobbies are trail riding, camping with horses, scuba diving, playing with dogs, gardening, swimming, skiing, and socializing.
