Wendy Granroos
Hospital Manager

Years ago I walked into Scenic Hills Animal Hospital and never knew what this place would soon become to me. I have worked for 14 years as a Veterinary Technician in small animal practices. I am a single mother to two teenagers Destiny 16 and Elijah 15. I have two dogs Squishy a Sheppard mix and Emmitt a lab mix who I previously fostered and adopted. I also have three sphynx cats, Cedric Von tiddlewink the 3rd, Damien and Roo. I am currently trying to adopt a third dog named BOO, he is a Chinese crested and I’m sure he will fit right in our hairless household. When I’m not at work I like to fish, kayak, and spend my time doing anything adventurous that my friends and I can find. I am a huge movie nerd and I absolutely love anything Zombie related. I can talk about “The Walking Dead” for hours. I look forward to meeting everyone that walks through our doors and really have grown to love the people of St. Paul. I Love Behavioral medicine and have taken a real interest in Fear Free practices to help our clients and pet’s feel more comfortable when they come through our doors.

Nikki Hanson, Certified Vet Tech at Saint Paul Animal Clinic

I graduated from Globe College in Woodbury in 2014 as a CVT. I have always loved being around animals-both small and large. I currently live in St. Paul with my husband and new baby. I now spend my free time watching my son learn new things. I have one dog, Remi, who loves coming to the clinic for a visit. The clinic here has become my second home. I love coming into work and spending time with my coworkers and clients here.

Brooke Knotek, Certified Vet Tech at Saint Paul Animal Clinic

I am a vet tech here at Scenic Hills Animal hospital and will soon be graduating from Argosy University - Twin Cities this fall of 2016. Later this year I have high hopes of passing my certification test and soon become a Certified Veterinary Technician (CVT).

While I am here one of my favorite things to work with is our Companion Laser! Anything related to rehab therapy and I am there! I later plan to work towards a degree in Canine Rehab therapy. I am also enjoying dental cleanings and monitoring patients under anesthesia.

Away from the clinical setting I spend most of my time with my family and three border collies Lady, Zoey, and Makoons. My favorite pass time is training my dogs, travel, and teaching dog agility.

I am a Vet Tech at Scenic Hills Animal Hospital and I have been here for about two years. I started out volunteering for about a year and then got hired about a year ago. I am currently attending Globe University to obtain my Vet Tech degree. I love my job here at Scenic Hills because I get to build great relationships with pets and clients. Nothing is more important to us then the pets and clients that walk through our door. I also love working with the staff here because they always know how to put a smile on your face. They are my second family and I am grateful to work with such great people. At home I have a boyfriend named Ashton of 6 years and together we have a beautiful three year old daughter named Isabella. I love them both very much. I also have a gecko named Gizzy and a cat named Precious. I am a huge animal lover and can’t wait to meet the pets and owners that walk into the clinic.

Laura Kimes
Certified Vet Assistant

Hi there! My names Laura! I live with my fiance, patrick; and our 2 dogs, Harvey and gobo. I love to spend the majority of my time outside whether that's camping or hiking and exploring. I've been involved with a local animal rescue for the last 4 years, volunteering my time to help with vetting, transportation, and fostering. I've always loved animals and that's why I'm making it my career! I've always been fascinated by animals' behavior and now that I'm learning more about it, I love to help others understand it as well. I look forward to helping you!
