Before joining the SFPC family, Paula worked for 20 years in corporate customer service. However, having always wanted to work with animals and working in a smaller business setting, she found a great home with Santa Fe Pet Clinic and living out her dream working with people who love animals just as much as her. She became interested in working with animals because of her love for them and finding out that people who have pets are a lot alike. She enjoys helping people who love animals and being able to show how any kind of pet can enhance someone's life. Paula says ``My favorite part of the job is meeting the client face to face and seeing what kind of pet or breed they have chosen``. In her spare time she enjoys watching Anime or walking anywhere with her husband, Ted (Front Desk Tech) and their Chihuahua ``Dixie``.
Cassidi joined Santa Fe Pet Clinic in August 2015. She is going to college at JCCC, and working here as a Vet Assistant as well as Kennel Tech Manager. Cassidi started her career here as a kennel technician while still in high school. Her mom, Michele, has been bringing their black lab ``Max`` here since he was a puppy. Cassidi has her own baby now, an adorable terrier mix named ``Aspen``. We are so happy she joined our family. Cassidi ``loves Dr. Wegele and his family, and everyone I have met at the clinic. I hope to stay here taking care of your animals for a very long time!``
Ted joined our clinic in 2014. Ted and Paula (Office Manager) have been married for many years, and now are happy to be working here together making sure all the needs of our clients are met. Ted enjoys texting clients appointment reminders and check-up results to give them a more personal feel. In their spare time they love watching Anime together and walking everywhere with their Chihuahua ``Dixie``. We hope they are part of the Santa Fe Pet Clinic Family for a long time.

Lisa became part of the SFPC family in July 2018. She was a vet tech for 15 years and then changed careers to work in the Baldwin School District as a Para Teacher. Lisa was lured back into the animal world to work with our clients and patients because she enjoys working with animals a lot, and we are very happy she decided to come join our family. She still lives in Baldwin, KS with her husband Cliff, and her three children, Kaela, Trenten and Hunter. Welcome to the family Lisa!

Officially on staff since 2001 and unofficially since she could walk, Jordan has been a part of the SFPC family, helping her dad, Leslie Wegele, in many positions starting as a kennel tech, up to Front Desk Tech, and even Vet Tech, as well as many clinic projects. Since her dad is a vet and her mom grew up on a farm, Jordan has been helping and raising animals since she was little, always having a soft spot for all animals great and small. Jordan’s favorite part of her job is always meeting the animals and their people. “I love building relationships with owners and getting to know them instead of them being just another client; helping them to understand all aspects of care are what are great about this job.” Outside the clinic, Jordan is a graduate of Kansas State University and enjoys going to KSU Baseball games whenever possible (Go Cats!). When at home, she loves snuggling with her cats, “Buster” and “Buzz” and reading a good book.
