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!"

Jaydeen graduated from Duluth Business University in December 2016 with an A.A.S. with Veterinary Technology. She was born and raised in Superior, WI but relocated to St. Paul where she joined our team in January 2018. She finds fulfillment in helping clients and their beloved pets, and has a special interest in veterinary dentistry.

In her spare time she enjoys doing anything outdoors, like fishing, camping, or relaxing on the pontoon with her husband Nate, her daughter Sawyer, and her pitbull mix Nova. 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!"
