Hi! My name is Ben, and I work as a veterinary technician in the Fond du Lac location. I joined Animal Wellness Center in March of 2017, and am proud to be part of this family. Previously, I have spent 14 years of my life working in veterinary hospitals, and before that, nearly a decade working in several pet stores with every sort of creature imaginable. I grew up surrounded by animals, so all of this comes quite naturally to me.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife, and our dog, Mandy, whom we rescued from a very bad situation. Previously, we cared for our other special needs dog, Astro, who was our first special boy. I call them my kids, as these are the only children I will ever have, and love them just the same as if they were my own.
I am also an accomplished artist, with my works in many galleries around the country, and even a few overseas. While I do a little of everything, my main focus is on lifecasting, sculpting stone, and engraving in shell and stone. I am very interested in my Native American heritage, and spend many hours reading and recreating Native items and artwork. I am an avid reader, and I also enjoy landscaping and tending to my various gardens.
