Hello, I’m Gina. I have been with Willoughby for about 15 years. Before that I worked at Ingham County Animal Control, and before that, the Capital Area Humane Society. I met my husband (Dale) at Animal Control. We’ve been together for 18 wonderful years.

At the moment I have one pet, his name is Ecco a 1.5 year old Doberman ( we can’t wait for spring so we can walk to work ️).

I enjoy long walks, collecting bear and turtle things, barbecues in the back yard, and campfires ( to name a few).

I’m looking forward to this new chapter of the clinic life with Dr Houk.
