Rod joined our team in 2020 as our new Hospital Manager of both Starch Pet Hospital and University West Pet Clinic. He is married to his wife Penney and has two Chow Chows at home, Maddie Lynn (named after the country singers Maddie & Tae and Loretta Lynn) and Kane Rodgers (named after the country singers Kane Brown and Kenny Rodgers). The best thing about his job is ensuring we use all available resources to provide the best positive patient care to animals treated and handled by the hospital. He also wants to provide a safe and productive working environment for the doctors and support staff. When he is not working, he is enjoying quality time with his friends and family. Garden season is very big at his house. He has developed a terrific recipe for salsa and pasta sauce.
