Born and raised right here in Waterloo, Dr. Kneeland worked for PPC as a kennel assistant in high school. He attended Iowa State University and graduated from the College of Veterinary Medicine in 1993. He then rejoined the PPC team as a veterinarian.
Dr. Kneeland loves all aspects of his job, and couldn't possibly pick a favorite! He lives in Waterloo with his wife, Jen, their children, a Boston Terrier, and three cats. When he is not at the clinic, he enjoys spending time with his family and being outdoors.
Born and raised in New York, Dr. Chadwick knew she wanted to work with animals from a young age. She attended Texas A&M University for her undergraduate degree in Biomedical Science and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, graduating in 2014. She became an associate at PPC in 2017.
Dr. Chadwick's favorite cases are exotic animals, dermatology (the icky-er the better!), and geriatric care. She lives in Cedar Falls with her husband, Seth, and their two rescue cats, Eve and Zan. Outside of work, Dr. Chadwick enjoys gardening, riding her horse Tico, and doing DIY projects with Seth.
Jess is a Iowa native who graduated from Kirkwood Community College's Veterinary Technology program in 2003. She worked at a veterinary hospital in Des Moines for 6 years before moving to Waterloo and joining the Pawsitive Pet Care team in 2009.
Jess loves spoiling all the fury kids that walk in the door. Her favorite part of her job is dental prophies (teeth cleaning), monitoring surgeries, and working with exotic patients. She enjoys spending her free time outdoors with family and friends. She has two cats, Frito Burrito Lay and Luke, as well as many foster kittens.
Christie is from the small town of Clutier, Iowa. She received her Certified Veterinary Technician licence form Kirkwood Community College in 2013. She joined the PPC team in 2017. She is currently working on applying to veterinary school.
Christie's interests are spending time with family, her boyfriend and friends, horseback riding, fishing, and anything outdoors. She lives in the country and has several horses, dogs, and cats. She says, "It's very hard to choose my favorite because each and every pet holds a special place and means the world to me!"
Jen was born and raised in Massachusetts, moving to Iowa as a teenager. She studied at Kirkwood Community College and graduated from the Veterinary Technician Program in 1992. She joined the PPC team in 1994 and worked as a veterinary technician.
Dr. Kneeland and Jen hit it off, and five years later they were married. Jen took a 9 year "maternity leave" to raise their five children. She returned to the PPC team in 2009 as Hospital Administrator. When she is not busy managing her kids at home, Jen loves spending time with her two grandchildren and reading.
Deb is another Iowa native who has been with Pawsitive Pet Care the longest. She started as Hospital Manager in 1978! She's seen PPC go through many changes, including 3 different buildings and switching from a mixed animal practice (horses and cows as well as dogs and cats) to small animal only. She's got great stories to share!
At home Deb enjoys the company of her two boxers, Jed and Griffin. When not pampering her critters, Deb is pampering her two sons and 7 grandchildren. Her other favorite activities include traveling, working outside, and shopping.
