Lynita joined Iowa Veterinary Wellness Center as a client services representative in February 2012. She graduated in 1989 from Snow College in Ephriam, Utah with an AS degree.

After moving back to Iowa, Lynita worked at her local humane society until she made the move to her first pet hospital in 2000. After that career move, Lynita realized that this was what she was meant to do.

Lynita lives in rural Iowa with her family. They share their home with four very lucky felines, one lone German Shepherd Dog, one Great Dane and a very brave Gerbil named Carl.

Jessica was born and raised in central Iowa. Her passion for animals was nurtured at a young age. During her formative years, she was active exhibiting hunter-jumpers and was also active in FFA with both horse and sheep projects.

Jessica began working in a veterinary hospital at the age of 16 and has never looked back. During her college education at Iowa State University and Grand View College, she worked for several area veterinary clinics. She finally “came home” to stay at Iowa Veterinary Wellness Center as practice manager.

Jessica lives in Polk city with her Bernese Mountain Dogs, rescued Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and one lone Eclectus parrot named Layla. Her hobbies include exhibiting her Berners in conformation, draft, tracking and obedience. She is active with her local regional Berner club as well as the parent association, the Bernese Mountain Dog Club of America. She is also a very involved Aunt in her three young niece’s lives. As every parent (and super Aunts) can attest, the girls’ activities keep her busy!

Christine was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. She obtained a Bachelor's of Science in Human Physiology from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 2008. She received her Associates of Applied Science in Veterinary Technology from Vet Tech Institute at Fox College in Tinley Park, Illinois in 2010.

She began her career as a Certified Veterinary Technician in Chicago for 3 years at a general practice animal hospital before moving to Des Moines. She then worked at one of the local emergency rooms in Des Moines for 2 years before joining our team at Iowa Veterinary Wellness Center in April of 2015.

Christine lives in Polk City with her husband, Matt, step-son Easton, and two wonderful kitties: Smokey and Zita. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with friends, family, and kitties, as well as cooking, traveling and staying active.
