Certified Veterinary Technician

Crystal graduated from Argosy University in Eagan, MN and has been a Certified Veterinary Technician since 2008. She joined our staff in August 2012. She loves the variety of everything she gets to do. ‘It’s fascinating!’ 

She enjoys spending time with her daughter, 2 dogs, cat, a Rose-breasted Cockatoo, and a bunch of fish. No lizards in her future, though! Well, maybe a gecko would be okay.  She watches the Vikings in her free time and enjoys a friendly rivalry with her cheesehead coworker. "SKOL VIKINGS!"

She also loves drawing the murals on our clinic windows. Jaydeen is an avid Green Bay Packers fan and lives by "Once a cheese head, always a cheese head. GO PACK GO!"
