Dr. Michelle Flynn

Veterinarian, DVM

She has worked as a small animal veterinarian in the Milwaukee area for the past 13 years. In that time, Dr. Flynn enjoyed getting to know the community and becoming a part of it. She is especially interested in wellness medicine and enhancing quality of life, considering the individual needs of each patient and client. She is outside every chance she gets in the warmer months, and considerably less so in the colder months. She enjoys gardening and podcasts, and she also does a little bit of rudimentary artwork. Dr. Flynn is looking forward to getting to know more of the folks in this area and helping in any way she can.

Dr. Ragoschke has a special interest in feline medicine, but loves working with all dogs and cats. Above all she prioritizes her patients’ comfort, which can mean managing any dental or mobility issues, chronic illnesses, and even their mental well-being. In her spare time, Dr. Ragoschke enjoys spending time with her own cats, hiking, gardening, and travelling.

Karrie

Clinic Manager

Karrie is, by education, a human surgical technician.  She joined Community Veterinary Clinic in 2012.  She enjoys the reception area working with the clients.  She is amazed how much fun pet owners are when working with their pets.  She hears about the little quirks and behaviors that owners share about their pets, and that makes her day as well as a few good stories to share.

When Karrie is not at work, she is traveling around the volleyball courts of Wisconsin.  Karrie’s daughter is a great talent and competitor in the sport.  Her pet Labrador recently tore his cruciate ligament requiring surgical repair, so she knows first hand what clients face when recovering a pet from major surgery.

Angie

Angie graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Madison with a BS in Wildlife Ecology. She has been working for CVC since 2000, and has been a Certified Veterinary Technician since 2003.

Angie is a sports fanatic and follows the Packers, Badgers and Brewers with extreme enthusiasm. If you come to the clinic on a Badger game day, rest assured that Angie will be wearing her Badger scrubs with pride.

Currently, Angie doesn’t own any pets. She saves all of her pampering for her sister’s chihuahua, Ivy, and the for the cats and dogs that she sees at CVC.
