Lindsay has been part of the Rainbow Animal Hospital family, and coincidentally also part of the Patton family since birth! As the urban legend goes, (aka her Mom) when most newborns are discharged from the hospital, their first stop is their home with their beautifully decorated nursery, and adoring family members waiting to meet the newest member of the family. Well, being a Vet’s kid, Lindsay’s first stop was Rainbow Animal Hospital. Dr. Patton had a critical patient he needed to check on, and because there is no such thing as a "quick check" Lindsay also received her first feeding and diaper change during that visit. Thanks to the staff, when they knew Dr. Patton and Erna were on their way in, as the new parents walked through the back door of the clinic, looking "guinea-pig scared" holding this tiny baby they were greeted with balloons, cake, champagne, and a box of "it’s a girl" cigars. Today Lindsay is one of our seasoned client service representatives.
Lindsay graduated from the College of Southern Nevada High School in 2003 and attended the University of Nevada, Reno. In 2008, Lindsay met her soul mate, Lambo, and they married in October 2011. Their furry family includes Kelsey, a beautiful black and white cat with huge green eyes, and Jackie, an adorable tabby.
When not at the clinic or school, Lindsay enjoys yoga, meditation, shopping, reading, hiking, and video games.
Growing up as a Vet’s kid, Lindsay has seen firsthand the tragic outcome that results of not spaying or neutering your pet, both in the overpopulation of unwanted pets, and the medical conditions that result from not performing this routine procedure. Her philosophy in this situation is; if you are thinking of adding to your family, please visit the shelter first. There are many friendly happy faces, most of which are already spayed, neutered, and vaccinated just begging to be part of your family. Both of her cats are rescued cats and are her pride and joy. Her second philosophy is to sign up for pet insurance, as early in your pet's life as possible. The peace of mind it brings is well worth it.
