Michigan State University, ’86

I always knew I wanted to be a veterinarian. In first grade, I would bring home dogs and cats that I believed to be homeless. Fortunately, my older sister would later return them to their appropriate homes. As a teenager, I spent my summers following a large animal veterinarian on his farm rounds in Petoskey, Michigan. In the winters, I would volunteer at a local animal shelter and give baths to pets waiting for their forever home. In high school, I was a veterinarian’s assistant at a local veterinary clinic in Southfield, Michigan. Luckily, during my third year of undergraduate education I was accepted to Michigan State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. After a grueling four years of schooling, I graduated in 1986 and have loved practicing veterinary medicine every day ever since.

My first job as a veterinarian was in Huntington, New York where I practiced for one year in a small animal hospital. I loved New York, but I knew that I would never be able to afford to open my own veterinary clinic. So I moved to Chicago, which is a more affordable, but equally exciting city. After practicing a few years in a fast paced high quality clinic, I finally realized my dream and opened my own practice in May 1990 – the Animal Medical Center of Chicago. I renovated a beautiful Victorian house in the pleasant Lakeview neighborhood and turned it into a state of the art veterinary clinic.

It’s been almost twenty-eight years since I graduated from veterinary school, and I still love talking to clients, the challenge of the diagnosis, designing a treatment plan, and watching my patients improve. My practice caters to those pet owners that treat their pets like family members. What makes my practice special is that we treat our clients like we would want to be treated – with respect, understanding, and empathy. If you ask my clients what makes me special as a veterinarian, I believe that they would say I have great intuition and diagnostic skills. My practice has a strong emphasis on pain management, dental care, preventative and internal medicine.

Client education is a top focus of mine, which does not end in the examination room. I make myself available to my clients for telephone updates and consultations. In addition, I write a reoccurring blog for The Huffington Post on timely pet care issues. It is an opportunity for me to share my veterinary knowledge and experience with many pet lovers across the country. Educating my audience, as well as my clients, is an issue that I am passionate about. I believe an educated pet client is the best pet owner.

I am married to Brad Ginn, an Ombuds at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago. We are the proud parents of two sons, Jacob and Sam. Jacob is a film student at the University of Michigan, and Sam is a junior at Oak Park River Forest High School. We share our home with two cats, Lemon and Oreo, and a golden retriever, named Zack.

I have been exceedingly fortunate that my childhood dream came true and I can practice as a veterinarian in the Chicago area. I have a wonderful clientele who have entrusted me in the care of their pets and have an amazingly talented staff that is a pleasure to work with. I am proud to be a Chicago veterinarian and love caring for dogs and cats every day.

Veterinarian
University of Wisconsin-Madison, ’90

From a very young age Dr. Meg Ogishi knew she wanted to work with animals and become a veterinarian. Growing up in Greendale, Wisconsin, she would find baby bunnies to care for, and was always searching for toads and snakes to play with. She also had a parakeet, fish, rabbit, and an ill behaved Cocker Spaniel named Don. She has no idea why she chose that name! Meg truly enjoyed taking AP biology her senior year in high school, and this experience made her dream of becoming a veterinarian seem realistic.

Meg obtained a Bachelor of Science in Zoology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1996. During her undergraduate studies she was a ski instructor for the ski club, volunteered in the wildlife department of the Milwaukee humane society and also cleaned kennels and large animal stalls at the UW Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital. She even kept a hamster in her dorm room closet her freshman year of college, much to the chagrin of her roommate. During veterinary school, she worked as an operating room assistant/technician in both large and small animal surgery. She graduated from University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine with Phi Zeta honors in May of 2000. Meg worked at Carlson Animal Hospital in Oak Park, Illinois immediately after graduation, and continued to work there until September of 2012, when she joined the Animal Medical Center of Chicago team. She loves working in the city, and being a part of such a talented and caring team.

When she’s not at work, Meg enjoys hiking, snowboarding, running, reading and has recently taken up sprint distance triathlons. Meg and her husband Ryan live in the Andersonville neighborhood. They have a 5 year old daughter named Naomi, who loves cats and plans to become a cat doctor. Meg and Naomi volunteer together at Tree House cat shelter. Their household also includes Abigail a 14 year old red Doberman, Sheneh an 8 year old Pitbull mix, Pig a 9 year old cat, Sophie a 1 year old aquatic turtle, a beta fish and 2 chickens.

Michigan State University, ’87

I was born in a rural area outside of a very small town in southern Michigan. My parents still live in the same home near Parma where I was raised. We had dogs, cats, hamsters, fish, rabbits, geese, ducks and assorted chickens during my childhood. I have always been fascinated by animals and loved learning everything I could about pets and wildlife. I can remember watching Wild Kingdom and documentaries on animals from a very young age. The idea of becoming a veterinarian was very appealing to me as a young child, but was tempered by my aversion to blood and body secretions. Luckily, I outgrew that by high school when I decided to attend Michigan State University with the goal to attend veterinary school.

During my pre-veterinary coursework at MSU, I majored in Physiology and Fisheries & Wildlife. Through hard work and study, I was accepted into the veterinary program in my third year of undergrad. I received a bachelor degree in Veterinary Medicine from Michigan State University in 1987 and my doctorate degree in 1989. During my time at MSU, I realized that exotic pets were not receiving the same level of medical care as conventional pets like dogs and cats. I was lucky enough to participate in an externship in Miami, Florida which allowed me to learn skills in the care of unconventional pets and zoo animals. I had patients there which included leopards, monkeys, crocodiles, and many species of parrots.

My first years of practice were spent in Jackson, Michigan. Initially, I worked at a small animal practice which allowed me to continue to see exotic pets, as well as, dogs and cats. In 1992, I started my own practice in Jackson and three years later designed and oversaw the construction of a new veterinary hospital. Our success allowed the hospital to quickly expand to a three doctor practice to care for our growing number of patients. In 2008, I sold the practice and joined the team at Animal Medical Center of Chicago.

Since joining this practice I have continued to enjoy treating dogs, cats and some exotic pets. I have a developed an interest in veterinary dentistry after having the opportunity to learn from Dr. Cindy Charlier, a board certified veterinary dentist. I also have an interest in nutrition and prevention of pet obesity. I am a member of many veterinary associations, both locally and nationally. I currently serve on the Animal Welfare Committee of the Association of Avian Veterinarians.

Outside of work I have multiple interests, including international travel, photography, and eating good food. My partner and I have a small farm in Southwest Michigan where we grow fruits, vegetables, and bees for honey production. We share our home with a French bulldog named Gladys, as well as, two senior citizen parrots, Griffin & Gator. We also have a cat, Sprout and a koi pond at our home in Michigan. I enjoy working at AMC because of the commitment to quality and the expectation of our clients to provide the best care for their pets.

Since childhood, Dr. Elaine Simpson has had a passion for animals. Growing up in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, she spent time at Busse Wood: canoeing, fishing, and searching for wildlife. She even created a small pond in her backyard for the fish she caught – ultimately deciding it was best for them to go back and live in the wild.

Dr. Simpson obtained a Bachelor of Art in Biology from Case Western Reserve University (Cleveland, Ohio) in 2010. Not only focused on her studies, Dr. Simpson ran cross country and track. She ultimately achieved All-American status at the national cross country meet in 2009. Dr. Simpson went on to study Veterinary Medicine at The Ohio State University, graduating magna cum laude in 2014. After graduation, she participated in a veterinary internship at Colorado State University which furthered her knowledge in internal medicine and emergency medicine. During this internship, she rescued and adopted a homeless pitbull-mix with fractured hindlegs. Lentil, who is now 3 years old, has become a wonderful city dog!

After Colorado State University, Dr. Simpson returned to the Chicagoland area where she worked at Countryside Veterinary Center, as both a general practice and an emergency medicine veterinarian. Her favorite parts of veterinary medicine are internal medicine, feline medicine, and cardiology. She also loves developing long term relationships with owners and their pets.

During her free time, Dr. Simpson loves to spend time outdoors, gardening, and with her family and friends. She also loves eating at new restaurants! In addition to Lentil, Dr. Simpson shares her home with a 7-year-old orange tabby cat, named Finn, who can be quite sassy!

Dr. Simpson joined the AMC team in 2017 and is excited to be practicing with such a dedicated and caring group.

Over the last decade, my professional career has been strictly focused in veterinary management where I have found tremendous joy in the nuances and complexities that it holds. My love for veterinary medicine began when I was twelve years old and was gifted a Maltese. Unfortunately, I soon discovered that she had a serious heart issue and would need chronic medication that my family could not afford. My emotional devastation was quite clear and the local town veterinarian took note. He made me a kind offer that set my life on a new trajectory. His offer was simple, come to his clinic every day after school and help out in exchange for the veterinary care that my pup would need. Unbeknownst to both of us at the time, my short term employment as a child cleaning cages evolved into a veterinary assistant position that I held until I started college.

At Emmanuel College in Boston,Massachusetts, I studied Management and Accounting while working at Banfield Pet Hospital as a veterinary assistant. Upon graduation, I was promoted to Hospital Manager. Over the next few years I grew my management responsibilities and territories to include 7 hospitals across the greater Boston area. Many years later, after recognizing the positive impact that I could make in patient care and staff development, I decided to leave the corporate world and become a co-owner of the the same small town clinic that I started my career in as a child.

I don’t know if the pandemic triggered this desire or what, but I was ready for a new adventure. Never lived outside of New England, I decided to move to Chicago. Since the move, me and my white Miniature Schnauzer sidekick Lexi have enjoyed exploring the neighborhoods and all that Chicago truly has to offer. The two of us can usually be found walking along the lakefront trail, kayaking the Chicago river or exploring a new restaurant. After joining the Animal Medical Center of Chicago team, I have truly enjoyed getting to know all the amazing associates, doctors, pets and am happy to be a part of the AMCOC family.

Sarah began her career in veterinary medicine in 2011 after graduating from Bel-Rea Institute for Animal Technology in Denver, Colorado, where she then was hired at her internship site and worked as a CVT overnights in an ICU at a large equine (horse) hospital. After moving back to her home state of Illinois in 2014, she worked at another equine hospital in the northern suburbs of Chicago. Although she loved working with horses, a previous shoulder injury pushed her into taking a break from working in equine vet med and allowed her to finish her BS in Biology at Lewis University. She is ecstatic to be back working as a CVT at AMCOC, where she can be close to home where she lives with her three dogs, two cats, and fiancé, Lucy.

My first job in the veterinary field was in a one doctor small animal general practice in 2007. While I was always drawn to animals and science, it was at this veterinary hospital where I discovered my passion for veterinary nursing. Soon after, I obtained a job as an emergency veterinary assistant at the Chicago Veterinary Emergency Services while also enrolled in the veterinary technology program at Fox College in Tinley park, IL. In 2009, I graduated with an AAS in veterinary technology and obtained my CVT license.

Shortly after graduating, I moved to Yonkers, NY, where I worked as an anesthesia technician in the surgery department at the Animal Specialty Center and was also enrolled in the veterinary technology program at Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry, NY. I graduated in 2011 with a BS in veterinary technology. I became an instructor for Westchester Community College’s veterinary technology program in Valhalla, NY teaching courses in surgery, anesthesia, and an externship review class. In 2013, I returned to Chicago to attend graduate school at Roosevelt University and to work as a surgery technician supervisor at the Chicago Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Center. I earned my veterinary technician specialty (VTS) certification in anesthesia and analgesia and also my MBA in 2014. In 2015, I began my PhD studies in organizational leadership at Concordia University in Chicago.

My aspirations to learn and to further my knowledge led me to accept the position as the Small Animal Surgery Technologist Supervisor at Purdue University Veterinary Teaching Hospital where I worked from 2015 to 2019. During my time at Purdue, I completed the requirements and became a VTS in surgery in 2019. I moved back to Chicago in 2019 and began working as an adjunct instructor at the veterinary technology program at Joliet Junior College and also as a surgery technician at MedVet Chicago. I am in my last phase of my PhD studies and hope to complete my degree by 2023. Destiny has now brought me to the Animal Medical Center of Chicago. I am beyond excited to continue to learn and grow as I continue my veterinary journey alongside this incredible team!

Hi!

My name is Tiffany,

I love being around animals. As an adult, almost every job I’ve had included some aspect of pet care. I was a professional dog walker and a lead receptionist at another veterinary practice in Chicago. I’ve also volunteered at many local animal rescue groups, including PAWS Chicago.

I came to Animal Medical Center of Chicago for the small town feel with big city options, and have loved every minute of it! My favorite part of veterinary medicine is working with animals and learning something new every day. I also love interacting with our amazing clients and my fabulous coworkers.

In the future I hope to strive each day to live life to its fullest and own a farm. I would love to have a house filled with 20 dogs and cats along with a greenhouse filled with plants. In my free time, outside of playing and caring for my pets, I have a passion for antiquing and gardening. I also have a soft spot for James Dean movies and Luke Perry, which is why I named my 3 year old Shar pei mix after him. I can’t wait to meet you and your furry family member!

Hugs and kisses Tiffany

My greatest life accomplishment has been rediscovering my love of animals. I previously got lost along the way and thought about going to law school but where is the fun in that?! I am now on track to go back to school for a masters degree in environmental science with the goal of working for the National Parks Service and helping manage policy for wildlife. That sounds like a way better way to spend my days!
