Andrea Muhlbach, Facility Administrator
Born and raised in Switzerland, Andrea discovered she was a Canadian at heart while on a family vacation in 1996 to the western provinces of Canada. After successfully completing 3 years of farm school in the old country, she had the opportunity to work for a dairy in Innisfail. During that time she met her husband-to-be and made the move to Stettler. Then, working for a big dairy on the outskirts of town for almost 9 years, a change of pace was needed and she got a job at Stettler Vet Clinic. She has been part of the team since 2011. Her and her husband welcomed a beautiful baby girl in 2013. She returned in August 2014 and is ready to lend a hand to everyone at SVC. Her interests outside of work are family, horses- continuously improving her Horsemanship skills, and acting for the Heartland Arts Troupe Society!
She joined our team on February 7 2022 moving all the way from the island (BC) to small town Stettler.
She has years of experience working in small animal clinics and is eager to learn all about mixed animal practice. She is the first friendly face you will see coming into our reception and most likely the voice you get when you call in. Outside of work she is enjoying the outdoors by running, paddle boarding, hiking or taking pictures. Currently she doesn’t have any pets but she would love to have a polydactyl Orange Tabby (she is secretly in love with our clinic cat Biggie).
You can make her day by bringing her any sort of junk food…. like candies or chocolates.

Hannah Jackson, VMR, Receptionist
Hannah was born and raised on a farm north of Castor, and from a
very young age she knew she wanted to work with animals. She was a
part of the local 4-H beef club for five years but only had heifer calves
so she could start building a herd of her own. Besides that she
competitively ski raced with Alberta Alpine for 8 years and completed
her Level1 Ski Instructor’s course. Graduating with honors from
Lakeland College’s Veterinary Medical Assistant program in 2021
she started working at the Stettler Vet Clinic the following fall. She
has always been a hard worker but in her down time you can find her
at the ski hill just down the road from the farm or snuggling with her
beloved cat Lucky, that she found as a kitten abandoned in the barn.
She also enjoys listening to true-crime podcasts.
Carolyn Kelter, Receptionist, Inventory
Joined our team May 9 2022.
Originally from BC she and her husband bought a quaint acreage on the outskirts of Stettler to be closer to her kids and grandbaby.
With years of experience in vet clinics in BC we see her becoming a valuable team player in no time.
When not at work you can find her with her horses just hanging out, brushing or trail riding. One of her goals here in Alberta is to camp out in the Rockies and explore the trails with her horses.
If she is not getting covered in horsehair she also gets in cuddles with her doggies and her kitty Scarlett.
Gardening and knitting are also on her list of things to do depending on the season, but don’t be fooled she is no little old lady…. well she is not old… but she is nice.
Lylas McKnight, Office Manager, Receptionist
Lylas has lived in Stettler for over 30 years with her husband Scott. Animals, especially cats have always been a big part of her life. Dedicating the past 7 years to animal rescue she brings a passion for caring for animals with her. Lylas has been an active volunteer at the Stettler Town and County Museums Booseum for many years. Halloween and the Paranormal are two of her biggest passions, so much so that she runs her own business, SPIRIT (Stettler Paranormal Independent Research and Investigation Team), which organizes ghost investigations!
Joanne Halseth, Bookeeping
Joanne recently joined the team as our bookkeeper. She has lived
in the Donalda area with her husband Bob for the past 37 years. They
raised their children Candace and Travis in the village before moving
to the country in 2007, where they built their home near her
husband's family homestead. Joanne has 3 cats that she adores;
Snoopy, Tigger and Little Kitty. They enjoy going for walks and
gardening with her by chewing plants, napping on her flowers and
being a general nuisance. In her free time, Joanne enjoys reading and spending time outdoors camping, quadding and snowmobiling.
Terra graduated with honours from the Veterinary Medical Assistant program in May 2014. While attending college she played soccer for the RDC Queens and received the Rookie of the Year award. The following year she played for the NAIT Ooks and received a CAA National Scholar Award. Terra has since went on to complete the Veterinary Practice Management program through Olds college in June 2018. From a very young age, Terra knew that she wanted to work at the Stettler Veterinary Clinic as she lived in the County of Stettler her whole life and has always had a passion for animals. At home her funny farm includes a german shorthair pointer, Hank, a variety of cats, horses, pigs and a new husband! Wylee and Terra were married June 3, 2017 and are looking forward to building a new home and starting a family together in a few years down the road.

Big Fella, Therapy Cat
From farm to fortune, Big Fella now lives a life of luxury at the Stettler Vet Clinic! The 7 year old orange tabby stole the hearts of all the staff after multiple visits to the clinic, due to a reoccurring aural hematoma. His disfigured ear and many toes (he is a polydactyl!) is all part of his charm and unique character. He lived as an outdoor cat at Terra's farm, but his loving demeanour showed that life as a clinic cat would be a better fit for him. In November 2017, Biggy made the move and joined the SVC team! His duties include providing comfort and cuddles for staff on difficult days, product tester and control, as well as the lunch room supervisor with expertise in food cleanup. Employee of the month, every month!
