Charlotte Sullivan RVT

Hi, I am Charlotte, I graduated from Colby Community College with a Veterinary Tech degree in 1984.  I started working with Dr. Sullivan in 1985, before Blair Doon existed,we were at Southeast Blvd. Animal Hosp, I remember moving all of the hospital to our present location, it was great! I married Blake Sullivan in 1986, no relation to Dr. Sullivan.  We live on 5 acres outside of Mulvane, we have 3 kids, 2 daughters and a son.  I, of course enjoy my 8 cats and 3 dogs.  I also enjoy gardening, antiquing and family activities.  I really love working with all my Blair Doon comrades, they are a wonderful group of people. When I am attending to the patients here I try to always think how I would like my own pets treated and try to treat your pets as compassionately as I can.

IMG_5833  Chrystal Beck, Assistant

Hi, I’m Chrystal Beck I started at Blair Doon in May 2016 as a veterinary assistant. I was at my last veterinary clinic from August 2005- May 2016, where I started in the boarding kennels and worked my way up. I graduated from dog grooming school in 2007, so in my “spare time” I groom dogs. My husband and I moved to Douglas and bought a home on 21 acres so that our 10 spoiled rotten house dogs ( 10 Australian Shepherds) and 6 cats could have more space. When I’m not working I enjoy competing in all kinds of dog sports; agility, obedience, rally, conformation, herding, dock diving, and a little bit of everything else. Our Aussies are health tested and overly socialized, so that we can continue a healthy lineage or versatile Razzmatazz Aussies.
