Southwest Animal Care Center

11010 Southwest Highway
Palos Hills, IL 60465



I've been working at SWACC since 2007. I have a Golden Retriever named Kayla and a Great Dane named Chesney. I enjoy bowling on my church league and baking in my spare time. My husband and I have two handsome sons George and Jacob.


I graduated from Fox College in 2011 and I've been a CVT here at SWACC since 2015. I have a Chihuahua named Lulu, a husky mix named Turbo, and a Basenji mix named Charlie. I also have a hefty, spoiled cat named Munchie. I enjoy painting, nature walks, cooking, and watching the Chicago Blackhawks win.


I joined the Southwest Animal Care Center team in 2016. I have been working as a veterinary technician in the Chicago area since 2004. In my free time I enjoy cooking, spending time outdoors, and relaxing and listening to music. I have an awesome, animal loving husband named Brian and 2 rescue dogs named Billy and Logan. I also have two pet rats named Elliot and Nigel.  


Lisa has been with our practice since October 2016. She assists our veterinarians with preventative care, exam/vaccine appointments, as well as X-rays, surgery, dentistry, and monitoring and caring for hospitalized and post surgical patients. Lisa has a great rapport with clients and truly appreciates the bond between people and their pets. She began her career as a vet tech in 1998 and her experience includes working in emergency medicine, at a high volume spay and neuter clinic, and in the specialty environment, specifically Ophthalmology. She is a huge cat lover and shares her home with two kitties named "Harold" and "Stitch", in addition to her husband Grant and two children Zachary and Grace.
