Callie is from Atkinson, IL and has always had a life long love of animals and pets. She graduated from the University of Illinois with a BS in Animal Sciences before making her way to the PAVG team. Callie has three Australian Shepherds named Thor, Fleury and Sidney. When she’s not at the hospital, you may find Callie hiking, taking photographs, or hanging out with her friends and family.
Lisa grew up in East Peoria and came to PAVG in February of 2011 after attending Hair of the Dog Grooming Salon and Academy, where she earned a certificate in pet grooming.
She lives with two funny pets: Fatboy, who likes hot and spicy pork rinds, and Dixie, who loves to howl along with police sirens. In Lisa’s free time, she enjoys spending quality time with her family, going on road trips with her boyfriend and conquering many hikes with Dixie.
Ryan Snodgrass calls Dunlap his hometown. He eventually attended Illinois Central College, where he needed a part time job—this led him to Chillicothe Veterinary Clinic, where he started as a kennel assistant, became a customer service rep and now he manages our Chillicothe location and tackles marketing for PAVG.
Ryan’s love of animals has only grown since he began working here. At Illinois Central College, he studied marketing and journalism, and is glad that he can combine his skills while working with pets. He states that the best thing about his position is, “Interacting with clients and patients, snapping cute pet photos and working alongside a fantastic staff across all three PAVG locations.”
Ryan currently lives with Russell, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Russell has a remarkable talent of always being two feet away from a human at any given time, and who also has that rare “happy bladder,” meaning all who enter his home get spritzed with Russell’s “happy pee.”
When Ryan isn’t working at PAVG, he enjoys watching and playing sports. He also enjoys photography, hiking and movies.
Emily grew up in Chillicothe and started out here in 2015 as a kennel assistant when she was a junior in high school. Working with animals runs in her family—her grandma was the director of Friends of Strays No-Kill Animal Shelter in Princeton, and Emily constantly volunteered at the shelter whenever the occasion arose.
Emily currently lives with a menagerie of animals, including Ivy, an Australian Shepherd; Molly, a Beagle mix; Pip, a domestic short hair; Jerry, another domestic short hair; Romeo, a domestic medium hair; and Otis, who she took in after he was abandoned with a broken leg and dislocated hip.
When Emily is not at work around the hospital, she likes to run, hike, spend time with her pack and play soccer.
