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. My husband and I have two handsome sons George and Jacob.


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 her kitty named "Stitch", in addition to her husband Grant and two children Zachary and Grace. 



As the newest team member here at SWACC, I have been a Veterinary Technician since 1997. I am currently a Certified Surgical Technician and have a great passion for working with animals. I am a cat mom to 3 furry babies; Claws, Butterbean and Smokey. In my spare time I enjoy being out in nature, reading and volunteering at a cat only shelter.
