Meet Our Doctor!
Dr. Brian Brumfield
Dr. Brumfield was born and raised in southern Indiana where he grew up with many four-legged friends: dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, turtles, and pet mice. His childhood shaped who he is as a veterinarian today. In 2008, he graduated from Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine. After graduation, he moved to downtown Chicago, where he worked in a busy small animal hospital treating and caring for dogs and cats. Over the past 14 years, he has developed a passion for client education in preventive medicine, internal medicine, and dentistry. His calm demeanor and gentle bedside manner help ease the nerves of our pets and their parents. Dr. Brumfield loves developing long-term relationships with his clients, in which many have turned into lifelong friendships.
In 2022, he, his wife, and three daughters moved to Rogers to be closer to his wife’s family and the great outdoors. In August 2022, Dr. Brumfield became the owner of Rogers Pet Clinic. He is excited to get to know all of our clients, their family pets, and continue to provide excellent veterinary care to the community.
Client Care Staff
Ashley Brotten- Clinic Administrator
Steph grew up and graduated from Elk River High School. She went on to continue her education with one year in Purdue University’s online Veterinary Technology program where she gained most of her veterinary experience. A short time later, in November of 2021, she joined us here at Rogers Pet Clinic as a receptionist. She currently lives on a 12 acre farm in Dayton with her boyfriend Max. They share two fur babies; Rip is a yellow lab and Winston is a domestic shorthair cat. They don’t have any cows yet but plan to one day have mini highlanders.
Jessica Olson- Lead CVT
Jess grew up in St.Michael-Albertville where she graduated from High School knowing exactly what she wanted to do when she grew up. She began schooling that fall at Argosy University where she got her AAS in Veterinary Technology and became certified shortly after. She has worked a variety of places but has been a technician at Rogers Pet Clinic since 2015 and is now Lead CVT. Jessica and her husband TJ have two kids, Jaxon and Charlotte, therefore she does not actually have much by way of “free time”. If she did you could find her reading or attempting DIY projects at home. Her Chihuahua Riley just celebrated his 14th birthday and is her pride and joy. They also have a Pointer named Stella and a handful of chickens. She is often referred to around the clinic as the “Chihuahua whisperer”.
Clara Henneman, CVT
Clara came to Rogers Pet Clinic in June 2022 as a veterinary technician. She graduated as a Summa Cum Laude honor graduate from North Dakota State University in May 2022 with her Bachelor of Science degree in Veterinary Technology. While at NDSU, Clara focused intently on her studies and graduated as one of the Top 10 Seniors in the College of Agriculture. Clara became a Certified Veterinary Technician when she passed her National Licensing Exam in December 2022.
Also, while at NDSU Clara spent 4 years on the Division 1 Bison Cheerleading Team where she met her boyfriend, Alec. During her free time Clara loves spending hours at the gym working out, coaching cheerleading at a local all-star cheer gym, fishing and tanning in the summer, and playing games with her friends and family. Clara doesn’t have any pets yet but would love to one day have a black Newfoundland named Nimbus… Alec will require some convincing.
Lydia graduated from NDSU in May 2020 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Veterinary Technology and a double minor in Animal Science and Large Animal Veterinary Technology. She started working at Rogers Pet Clinic in October of 2022. Fun Fact: Lydia grew up with her parents bringing their family pets to Rogers Pet Clinic. This helped to inspire her to want to work with animals when she grew up. She always wanted to see what was through that door into the back room, and now she gets to see it every day! She does not own any animals for herself just yet, but hopes to someday soon. She enjoys working with all animals, large and small. In her free time she enjoys camping with her family, being outdoors, and spending time with friends.
