Meet the friendly staff at Compassion Veterinary Clinic!
It all started in a log cabin in the woods...
Only kidding. Actually, Dr. Hanneman was born in the suburbs of Chicago, but the other story sounds so much more interesting.
Raised both in Chicago and a suburb of NYC, she later graduated from Cornell University with a degree in Animal Science. While there, she spent much time working as a groom in Cornell's polo barn and milking cows for NY state quality milk. From there, she moved back to the Midwest and graduated from Purdue University Veterinary School. After much soul searching, she decided to specialize in small animal medicine and followed Vet School with an internship in small animal medicine and surgery. She has been at Compassion Veterinary Clinic in a part-time and relief capacity for over 15 years.
On a personal note, she and her husband, also a veterinarian, have 2 sons, 3 border collies and 2 cats. Her hobbies include gardening, dog training, and competing her dogs in agility at the Masters level. She is involved in The Sharing Foundation, a non-profit organization, promoting the welfare of Cambodian youth. Having traveled to Cambodia, she enjoys travel and is hoping to visit more exotic locations in the future
