After graduating from Hamilton High Big Blue in 1982, I performed my undergraduate studies at Miami University from 1982-1986 and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Zoology.
I graduated from the Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1990 and have been in private practice ever since.
After practicing in Indiana and the Tidewater region of Virginia for 6 years, I returned to my hometown and established Brookside Animal Hospital in 1996.
Although I have found most aspects of private practice enjoyable, I especially love soft tissue and orthopedic surgery.
Kristy Schulte, RVT
My name is Kristy, and I was with Brookside for 8 years. I left for 2 years and now I am back! I was married in April 2011 to my wonderful husband Kyle. We now have a daughter and a son. We have a cocker spaniel named Carson, and two cate named Ernie and Tootie.
I am a proud wife and mother of two wonderful children. I have what could possibly be the laziest black lab ever - Jake! Cooking is a hobby of mine, so when you stop by new ideas are always welcome!
Many wonder why I work with animals, and the answer is simple. I am very passionate about helping people and now I get the best of both worlds!
Liz enjoys working with animals.
I was found in a ditch and brought to the Brookside Animal Hospital where I was taken in by Dr. Hughes because he is a sucker for a cute and lovable kitty.
Although some know me as Pitch, I am also called “Bubba the Love Sponge”.
My days are spent greeting clients, sleeping, playing with computer mice, eating, giving the staff someone to pet throughout the day and, of course, sleeping. I sort of run the place so if you need something you know who to ask.
Paprika, our other clinic cat, keeps Pitch company and sometimes we even catch them snuggling together!
