Get to Know Haven

Haven O

Haven Veterinary Technician

Haven knew she wanted to work in the veterinary field from a very young age. After working as a veterinary assistant in high school, she got her degree in animal sciences with the intent of attending veterinary school. However, the Covid pandemic began during her senior year of college, and she chose not to return to school. Instead, Haven decided to get hands-on experience with dog behavior modification training before joining our practice. She has multiple certifications, including Certified Animal Care Provide via PACCC, Pet First Aid and CPR, and CGC Evaluator and Trick Dog Evaluator via the AKC.

One of Haven’s favorite things about working at La Crosse is seeing the compassion everyone has for their patients, clients, and coworkers. She has two dogs, Mesa (Pembroke Welsh Corgi) and Skippy (Hound mix), a corn snake called Kenny, a crested gecko named Lenny, and a red-eyed tree frog named Paddy. Both of her dogs compete in a variety of sports and hold several titles in lures coursing, barn hunting, and other areas. In her spare time, Haven enjoys being in nature and camping, hiking, and paddle boarding.
