Your pet’s emotional and physical well-being is prioritized with every visit. We put the patients first!



Certified Veterinary Technician

Growing up on a crop farm in Hutchinson, MN, Amanda always knew she wanted to one day work with animals. Her initial goal was to become a vet, however, after shadowing during high school, she discovered that the technical side of things would be a better fit, as it would allow her to be more hands-on with the animals. As a CVT here at River Ridge, Amanda loves being able to serve our clients and help our patients in any way she can!

After graduating from North Dakota State University, Amanda landed her first job in Prior Lake. A year or so later, in March of 2013, she joined the River Ridge Pet Clinic team and has been here ever since. One of the things she loves most about working here is how small and family-like the practice is. This makes it easier to get to know the clients and their pets on a more personal basis, which makes for better overall service and care.

Outside of the clinic, Amanda is married with a young son named Carter. The family has two cats, Sophie and Gus, both of whom know how to roll on their backs in exchange for treats. When she’s not busy caring for Carter, Amanda enjoys crafting – particularly making cards, vinyl decals and wooden signs.
