Being raised with a ranching background, I have always had an interest in animals. I received my Associates Degree right out of high school, at that time becoming a Registered Veterinary Technician. Keeping my registration up with continuing education, I have gone from being a RVT to a Licensed Veterinary Technician. I feel blessed to be in a profession I truly enjoy. My husband and I have 2 sons. Hobbies include baking and making jelly with my mother and spending time with granddaughter Willow. I am also an active member of Live Oak Baptist Church.
Lyndsie Foster - Lead Tech
I was born and raised in Princeville, Illinois. Growing up, I was very active in 4I-1 and FFA. I showed horses and was president of my FFA chapter. I attended Black Hawk College in Kewanee, IL where I received my Associates in Equine Science and Associates in Horse Science Technology. There, I was a member of the Intercolligent Horse Judging team and very active in ropings and barrel races that we hosted. Upon graduating in 2010, I took a job with Matt Miller Cutting Horses in Poolville, TX. After 2 years of hauling with them, I moved to Jacksboro and started working for Live Oak in June 2012. I am CVA certified Level 1 and am currently continuing my education online. The vet clinic, the clients and the patients are family to me and a definite home away from home. In my free time I enjoy riding horses, working cattle, shopping (of course) and spending time with friends. I have 3 pets. A perfect dachshund named Khloe, a black mouth curr dog and a cat.
