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- especially the Cowboy Challenge, and acting for the Heartland Arts Troupe Society!

Shelby Boehlke, VTA, VMR
Shelby was born and raised on a small farm just outside of Hanna, AB. Animals have always been a huge part of her life, and from a very young age she knew that working with animals was where she was meant to be. Shelby graduated from Olds College with her Veterinary Medical Receptionist & Veterinary Technical Assistant certificates in 2015 and started working at the Stettler Veterinary Clinic in December of 2019. If you can't find her out for coffee with friends or family, then you can probably find her in a hockey arena or at a baseball diamond. Shelby has had a few different titles and names, but her favourite one so far is being an Auntie.
HANNAH Jackson, VMR
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.
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!
