Morgan McCoy, DVM, CVSMT
After graduating from UW Madison’s School of Veterinary Medicine in 2010, I moved to New York City to complete a year long internship at a busy referral center in Manhattan. From there, I moved to Chicago where I worked in emergency and general practice. Since then, I’ve come home to Wisconsin and have been practicing in Racine since 2012. In 2016 I graduated from the Healing Oasis Veterinary Spinal Manipulation Certification Program and became a member of the College of Animal Chiropractic. I have a very strong interest in integrative approaches to pain management, trying to limit NSAIDs and opioids by focusing on joint health itself. I hope to become certified in acupuncture by 2019.
Outside of Magnolia Springs you can usually find me cooking or half finishing a project from another new hobby. You’ll probably see at least one member of my family around the hospital at some point, whether it’s my husband (Adam), two children (Malcolm and Deirdre), my old man Pug (Doug), baby girl French Bulldog (Marge), most handsome best kitty (Yusuf), or naughty kitty (Agnes).
Melissa Gallick, DVM
Since I've been a child, I have known that I wanted to be a veterinarian. I grew up having many different kinds of animals from reptiles, dogs and cats, to large animals such as pigs, sheep and cattle. After graduating from veterinary school at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2010, I moved to Orlando, Fl to begin my career at a busy general practice. In 2011 I moved back to Wisconsin and practiced in Madison, Wi for a few more years. In 2013 I moved back near my hometown and have been practicing in the Racine area ever since. I have a strong interest in dentistry/oral surgery, dermatology, internal medicine, and oncology. At some point in the near future I would also like to add physical rehabilitation to my skill set as well.
Outside the clinic I enjoy being with my husband and 3 kiddos. We love being outdoors and traveling as much as possible (particularly in the winter to escape the cold). We have 2 dogs, an English Bulldog/Boxer mix (Penny), and a Munsterlander mix (Payton), and 3 cats (Olaf, Raisin, and Peter). We live on a small farm and raise pigs, chickens, and also have two cool peacocks (Kevin and Karla).
Laurie R., Practice Manager
I'm Laurie. I graduated with my B.S. from UW-Whitewater (just a few years ago), haha. My background has been in management on the human health side for the last 20+ years, but I couldn't be more excited to start a new adventure in the animal world. When not in the clinic, I enjoy being outdoors, boating and biking. However, my favorite pastime is hanging out with my grandcritters (the peacock and tiger cub pictured) and grandogs.
At an early age I knew I wanted a career that involved animals. I grew up with dogs, cats, horses and pigs and I always liked helping the Veterinarian. Being a homebody due to the animals, I decided to stay close to home for college. When I heard Gateway Technical College was opening a Veterinary Technician program I signed up right away. I was the first class to go through the program and in 2017 I officially graduated from the veterinary technician program. My first job was at the Animal Hospital of Union Grove where I learned to perfect the skills I learned in school. I hope to learn even more here at Magnolia Springs Veterinary Center.
Emma C., CVT
Growing up I always knew I wanted to work with animals, and I actually never had animals of my own until I was 18. I guess playing with family member pets, is where it all started. After high school I attended Gateway and started the nursing program - I didn't know much about veterinary, and thought the only way to be in the field was to be a Veterinarian. After gaining more knowledge, I moved my studies to Milwaukee Career College and obtained my vet assistant diploma. After working in the field for about three years, I went a little further and took my licensing test to become a CVT, and I passed it in 2016! I have a love for surgery, but I am always up for puppy and kitten play time! I have 2 dogs, Hurley (Cockapoo) and Boo (Maltese). I can't wait to meet you and your fur family!
