Anjie L. Foy – Practice Manager
Anjie was born and raised in Kalispell, MT graduating from Flathead High School in 1988. In 1991, she started
working in veterinary medicine as a receptionist and kennel assistant. With a little spunk and her hard work,
she is the clinic's "go to" person. Anjie and her husband Kevin, have two dogs, "Couper" and "Gracie Mae"
along with two cats, "Zip" and "Bob". Anjie and Kevin have fun camping, boating, and snowmobiling but most of
all, they enjoy sitting around the campfire spending time with friends and family.
Glacier – Clinic Mascot
"Glacier" is our clinic mascot who can be seen routinely sleeping in the "go back" file bin. After being abandoned at
Woodland Park, she was brought to us soon after we opened our doors by the Kalispell Parks and Recreation Department.
She immediately took to the clinic and refuses to leave. "Glacier" helps to keep the clinic in fine working order
while harassing the occasional dog when she can. Please be stop in and say 'Hello' to her.
