Nevada Veterinary Clinic is proud to have the largest support staff in the area. This means there are more highly trained and compassionate people to take care of you and your valued pet.


Our Technicians:

Jeanne_Crew.jpgJeanne has been working as a veterinary technician since 1997. When Jeanne and her husband, Mike, moved here from Kansas, she stopped by the clinic, and we instantly knew she would be a great addition to our staff - and we were right! There's nothing she isn't willing to do for the welfare of our patients. Jeanne and her husband have one daughter, Mariska, and they are avid waterfowl and deer hunters. They enjoy spending time outdoors with their 3 dogs (Aldrich, Lucy, and Tank) and their horses.

RB_Lady.jpgRockie Braun has been the voice of Nevada Veterinary Clinic, and a member of our staff, since 1986. Since then she has raised 4 children and welcomed her first grandchild. She loves cooking and spending time with her family, especially her growing grandson, Brexton. Her pet family includes 4 dogs (Victoria, Lilly, Sis, and Bob), a cat, and a handful of horses, goats, and cows. 

Gracie joined our staff in 2014, starting as a kennel attendant before switching over to the technical side. She grew up on a farm outside El Dorado Springs, MO and graduated from Penn Foster online high school. In her spare time, Gracie enjoys exploring the great outdoors and loves both rifle and bow hunting. She shares her home with 3 dogs (Ernie, Daisy, and Allis) and 3 cats (Homer, BabyGirl, and Tinkerbell). 


CF_Lamb.jpgCindy Foursha, our Business Manager, has been a member of the staff since 1997. Cindy attended the University of Missouri - Columbia but completed her degree in zoology at the University of Hawaii. She is married to Sam, a Nevada boy, and they have two adult children, Andy and Leslie. When not at work, she enjoys spending time with Emma and Prissy, her granddogs, as well as her own dogs (Annie, Bear, Bowser, and Toady) and her flock of sheep.

Christi_Group.jpgChristi joined our staff as a receptionist in 2006. She has over 25 years of experience in the veterinary field and has extensive knowledge about large animal pharmaceuticals. Her hobbies include camping, fishing, volunteering with 4H, and spending time with her children, Forest and Shiloh. She shares her home with two dogs, Pitch and Lilly, and her daughter's chickens.

Judy_Cat.jpgJudy is our "hostess with the mostest". She knows almost everyone in Vernon County since she grew up here, and those she doesn't know quickly feel like old friends. She is Dr. Copeland's mother-in-law. Judy enjoys cooking (which we appreciate), gardening, traveling, and activities with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She shares her home with her two dogs, CJ and Clancy.

Switlik_Gizmo.jpgLinda was stationed at the Nevada Armory from 1985 until her recent retirement. We were fortunate to be able to coax Linda into working with us as a part-time receptionist. Her formal education includes a bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Sterling College in Sterling, Kansas. She lives on acreage outside of town with her husband Jim, their herd of dogs and cats, and a mixed flock of guineas, geese, ducks, and chickens. She enjoys animals, obviously, as well as gardening and bargain hunting at local sales.

Jane Ann is a retired schoolteacher who taught 30 years for the Nevada R-5 School District. She has a bachelor's degree from Missouri Southern State University and a master's degree from the University of Central Missouri. Jane Ann is married to Terry and they have two adult children, Stacy and Jennifer. They also have a son-in-law, Matt, and two grandchildren, Elin and Aksel. You can find Jane Ann from spring thru fall on Truman Lake crappie fishing or at her camper with friends and family. In the off-season, she enjoys directing/performing with the local theater productions. Their pet family includes a cat (Lizzie) and two dogs (Molly Jane and Penny Lane).


Heidi_Bart.jpgHeidi has been a valued member of the Nevada Vet Clinic staff since 1999.  She began as one of our animal care attendants but soon revealed her interest in grooming. She has been grooming for us since 2002 and has developed quite a following! The dogs she grooms seem to really enjoy the time she spends carrying them around the clinic to visit the rest of the staff. Heidi came to Nevada from Oregon to attend Cottey College, and while here, she met and married James, and they decided to make Nevada their home. They enjoy camping and volunteering for the Missouri Stream Team and share their home with 2 dogs, Bartleby and Sookie.

Shannon initially joined our staff as a technician in 2009 but left us in 2013 to pursue training as a groomer. We were pleasantly surprised to welcome her back in 2015! She is a graduate of Nevada High School and holds a Bachelors of Science in Biology from Stephens College. In her free time, she enjoys painting, baking, and exercising, and is an avid fan of both the Cubs and Red Sox. Shannon and her long-term boyfriend, Brandon, share their home with 3 dogs (Moxie, Layla, and Fletcher) and 1 cat (Linus).

Kennel Attendants:

Amber is the newest addition to our staff and splits her time between helping out as a technician and taking care of our boarders in the kennels. Look for more information on Amber soon! 

Megan is one of our life-saving part time helpers. In her free time, she enjoys hunting (rifle and bow) and riding 4-wheelers. She shares her home with 2 dogs, Nayla and Bailey, and one cat, Sounder.


Shannon works on Sundays. She makes sure our boarders and patients are clean, fed, walked, and pampered morning and night. We are very fortunate to have her caring for our patients at the clinic. She is married to Todd, and they have two adult children, Seth and Maggie, and 3 grandchildren. Shannon and Todd share their home with 3 dogs and several cats.
