Kara Medley: Lead Veterinary Technician/Assistant 

My name is Kara Medley & I have worked with Dr. Sewell for about 3 years. I achieved my certification from Kiamichi Technology Centers, but would love to further my education when the time is right. I have 3 fuzzy children, my cat named Pepe & two black labs. Ruger is the big brother (and good role model) for our youngest dog Reign. My family has had animals ranging from sugargliders to cows. I knew from the beginning that I wanted to be in this profession & now that I am, I LOVE my job! I am blessed to be a small part of such a wonderful clinic & hope for many years to come!





Joan Brogden: Veterinary Assistant 

Although I am semi-retired now, I still come in & work in the clinic when needed. I went  through most of the veterinary technician school until I was hired at a clinic in Houston, Texas. My husband & I relocated to McAlester, OK in 2014. We have two dog children & two children that now have children of their own. I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren & learning new fun things to do now that I am retired!


Joan Gonzales: Veterinary Assistant 

My husband & I moved here in 2017. I enjoy teaching pet owners about the proper care for their animals.
