New Berlin Animal Hospital Staff Profiles
Dr. Michelle M. McDonoughI graduated from the University of Wisconsin Madison School of Veterinary Medicine in 2010. Since I was a young girl I always knew I wanted to be a veterinarian. I feel truly blessed to be in this profession; how many people can say they are in their dream job? I grew up in Oak Creek, Wisconsin so being able to live and work near where I grew up has been a welcome opportunity for me.
I love this profession due to the fact that I am able to work closely with pets but more importantly develop a strong relationship with their owners. The human-animal bond is truly a special one. My professional interests include neurology, dermatology, animal behavior, and soft tissue surgery.
My husband, Nick and I share our home with a wonderful, energetic mixed breed dog named Lola. She brings much joy to our life and keeps us on our toes and active. In my free time I love to scrapbook, spend time with family and friends, swim, and spend time outdoors.
Dr. Dale HermannI was born and raised on the northwest side of Milwaukee. I grew up with a wonderful dog named Queenie, but it wasn’t until I started working at the Milwaukee County Zoo that I became interested in becoming a veterinarian. While working at the zoo as a Zoomobile driver, I completed my BS degree in Chemistry from the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee. Since Wisconsin did not have a vet school at the time and I needed to take some animal science classes, I moved to Minnesota where I completed my BS degree in Animal Science and Veterinary Science while working as a Chemist at 3M. While attending veterinary school, I was one of the coordinators of the Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic as well as a volunteer educator at the Apple Valley Zoo and Como Park Zoo. I also worked as a volunteer at the Raptor Rehabilitation Clinic. While living in Minnesota, I enjoyed the many boundary water canoe trips as well as scuba diving in the area lakes. Winter outdoor activities included skiing and snowshoeing.
After graduating from vet school at the U in 1989, I moved back to Wisconsin and worked as an emergency veterinarian for a year at the Animal Emergency Center. In 1990, I started working for Drs. Ibsen and Backe at New Berlin Animal Hospital. I purchased the practice from them in 1991. Over the years, I have been involved in many community activities including being president of the Chamber of Commerce twice, president of the Waukesha Veterinary Medical Association, Chairman of the Information and Technology Committee for the Wisconsin Veterinary Medical Association, and winner of the Business Person of the Year Award. I am also a member of many professional organizations and taught seminars on the use of computers in veterinary medicine at two American Veterinary Medical Association conventions.
Over these past 20+ years, I absolutely love my job. The staff that I have the great honor to work with at the hospital is beyond words. I am so proud of each and every one of them. They are passionate and caring. I also enjoy working with the clients and their pets – doing this while having fun. Nothing is more rewarding than to see a pet come in not feeling well and leaving the hospital on the road to recovery.
As for my personal life now, I married an awesome, wonderful lady, LuAnn in 2005. LuAnn graduated from seminary with her Masters and is a pastoral counselor. I have one step-daughter, Claire, who lives in St. Paul, Minnesota while working towards her Masters degree in Acupuncture. My wife and I have two pets, a cat named Buck and a Golden Retriever named Star. Buck or Mr. B Squirrel as we call him, has his own Blog page. Go to the Stories page and check it out!
Dr. Andrea SobonI am a 2001 graduate of the University of Wisconsin-School of Veterinary Medicine and did my undergraduate work at both UW-Milwaukee and UW-Waukesha. Prior to veterinary school, I worked in wildlife rehabilitation. During my senior year at veterinary school I completed a one month externship at the Milwaukee County Zoo. My professors awarded me the Eberhard Rosin General Surgery award prior to graduation.
These experiences helped develop my continued interest in exotic medicine and soft tissue surgery. I am a member of the major local and national veterinary associations, including exotic species. I have an eight pound leopard tortoise, a bearded dragon lizard, and four cats.
When I am away from work I love to spend time with my husband, Erik, and my two young children, Kristian and Anna. We like to hike, play soccer and tennis, and recently Anna and I have started ice skating lessons. Additionally, I love cooking and baking and often bring in my creations to share with my coworkers. My next big trip will be a first as a family and we would love to visit Hawaii. I have also always wanted to go to Australia to see the many unique animals that live there.
I love working at New Berlin Animal Hospital for many reasons, particularly because of the animals I am able to help. Additionally, we are a family here and it is really nice to want to go to work everyday. I began my employment at New Berlin Animal Hospital in 2005 and plan to stay until I retire.
