Practice Manager: Donna Bodkin
Donna helps husband Kendall manage the Hayden Pet Medical Center which they purchased in 1990. Born and raised in Oklahoma, she truly appreciates the beauty of North Idaho. She holds a Master’s Degree in Speech Pathology and spent twenty years working with adults and children who are developmentally disabled. As the veterinary business expanded, she found herself working more and more hours there and fewer in speech pathology until she started working full time at HPMC in 2005. When not at work, she enjoys spending time with her husband and their two sons. She also loves travel, reading, hiking, and many outdoor activities. She and Kendall have two dogs, Zia & Keara, who come to work with them every day. They also have a cat, Elsia, who loves to play with the dogs. And, of course, one never knows who or what will poke its nose over the railing on the second floor of the Center or give a yell from one of the bird cages or glass sided kitty motel rooms up there.
Office Manager: Debby Dayton
Debby and her husband, David, moved to the Hayden area from Southeast Idaho in 1998. Debby started with Hayden Pet Medical Center as a part time receptionist in July of that year. Her position now, requires full time hours and provides new learning opportunities. She enjoys working with the other receptionists to provide good client relations. She says the best part of her job is getting to know our clients and their pets. Getting to work with animals daily is a “bonus”. She enjoys camping, gardening and spending time with her family especially her grandkids. She currently has 2 dogs and 2 cats which she feels is “just right”.
