Dr. Janice Collins D.V.M.
My love for animals started early in life when my family rescued dogs like Arrow (shot by an arrow), Stubby (an amputee) and Barney, an orphaned Beagle raised by hand. My desire to help sick or injured pets also started in childhood when I would help my Dad in his veterinary office with weekend and evening emergencies. Pets would come in hit by a car or needing surgery and they would return home to the families who love them. A tender heart for animals, especially the injured or sick, is still what drives my passion for being a veterinarian today.
My dogs are Gunner (G-man), Lucy (LuLu) and Sneaky Pete (‘Neaky). Gunner is the largest but he frequently gets reprimanded by Sneaky Pete. After his confidence is in the dumps, a good game of tug brings it right back again as he reclaims the prize. LuLu likes to complain to the staff about her perception of the treat shortage at the clinic. She stares at the treat drawer and barks until she is rewarded with a yummy.
I like to read. I like being outside: skiing, riding my bike, walking the dogs, and being in water — swimming and scuba diving. Mostly, I like spending time with friends.
Dr. Mary “Molly” Lynch D.V.M
I have worked for Dr. Jan since 2014. I started my pre-veterinary career in shelter medicine as an assistant in 2002. Feline medicine is my passion. I am a lifelong ailurophile, although I enjoy working with patients of other species as well. As an undergraduate, I studied anthropology at the University of Michigan. I spent 10 years after college working in the nonprofit sector before entering veterinary school at Michigan State. I was the cat nerd in my vet school class.
I served as Vice President and then President of the MSU Student Chapter of the American Association of Feline Practitioners, took additional specialty externship training in feline medicine, and received the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) Outstanding Senior Student Award in Feline Medicine and Surgery. I have been an enthusiastic AAFP member since graduation and plan my vacations around cat-related continuing education events. SEMVA Academy member since 2014 (50+ hours CE annually to qualify).
Yvette – Veterinary Assistant
I have been an animal lover since I was four years old (my mom would rescue baby bunnies!). I have worked with animals since 2014 as a veterinary assistant. My goal is to be a veterinary technician one day. I enjoy making an impact in the world by affecting and improving the human-animal bond. I have many varied pets including a lizard, chinchilla, pet insects, birds, dogs, and cats. I enjoy singing and music. I can play several instruments including guitar and drums and I am learning the piano. I also enjoy gardening!
