Practice Owner & Certified Veterinary Technician

Hi Megan! So, do you go by Megan or do you have any nicknames?
I go by Megs or Mego. Really special people call me Maizey- mostly that means my mom!
In your words, what is your job at Beaverton Pet Clinic?
It’s my job to ensure that Beaverton Pet Clinic runs as smoothly and consistently as possible. I assist the team by facilitating the best possible client and patient care which ultimately leads to employee satisfaction that trickles down to healthy and happy pets. From my time working as a CVT, I have a great deal of hands-on experience working with our patients. Also having experience as a CSR, I work with the Client Services Team to advance our customer services practices. The two things I enjoy most in life are pets and people and I am truly fortunate to be able to combine them in my professional pursuits. With each opportunity and challenge, I am presented with in my job at Frontier Veterinary Hospital and at Beaverton Pet Clinic, I am able to have the chance to somehow advance the human-animal bond. I can’t imagine a more fulfilling occupation.
You’ve worked in the veterinary field for a long time, why did you decide to work at Frontier Veterinary Hospital and now at Beaverton Pet Clinic?
It’s true, I have worked at veterinary hospitals and clinics since I was in college. Naturally, I was impressed with the facilities- every veterinary professional wants to work in a hospital like this! But I think the thing that really set Frontier apart was the kindness the staff showed me right from my first interview. This is the same feeling my husband Dr. Scott Loepp and I had when we first met Dr. Wilson and the staff at Beaverton Pet Clinic, and we knew right away BPC would be a great fit for our veterinary practice family.
Do you have any pets?
While I have had many pets in my lifetime, right now we have one very special kitty and several fish. We took in a pregnant stray several years ago and after she had the kittens, we decided to keep her daughter, Miss Hiss. Hiss is a big silly gal with a bit of “tortitude”, but she’s really a softie and is quite charming with her antics. I also have fancy goldfish at home and at work. For whatever reason, I have a special touch with goldfish. My last one lived 10 years and grew to the size of a large apple.
Tell us a little-known fact about you!
I worked at the Oregon Tiger Sanctuary from 1999-2001, where I had the opportunity to work with lions, tigers, gibbons, a spider monkey, as well as a whole colony of rabbits and ferrets. All of the animals there, especially the big cats, are rescued from backgrounds in Hollywood or from abusive or neglectful homes. Believe me, wild animals do not make good pets! When I first started working there they had just rescued a female lion and had bred her with one of their male lions to create a pride. Since lions in the wild live in these familial and social groups, having a pride creates a more natural environment for both the existing lions and for introducing new rescues. After the cubs were born I had the opportunity to work with the lion cubs and assist in the ovariohysterectomy (“spay”) surgery on the mother.
