Originally from Michigan, Dr. Lien graduated from Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2011. Since then, she has practiced in small animal general medicine, emergency medicine and wildlife medicine throughout her career. Following several years in a mixed animal practice in Michigan, Dr. Lien completed a wildlife and conservation medicine internship in Sanibel Island, Florida. Migrating back to the Midwest, she merged her passions for small animal and wildlife by working in various general practice and emergency clinics throughout Milwaukee as well as serving as veterinarian for the Wisconsin Humane Society’s Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. Dr. Lien is excited to join the North Lake team especially with their shared focus on high quality medicine and patient care. Her special interests include urgent care, soft tissue surgeries, and establishing long lasting patient/client relationships. Together with her boyfriend, they share 3 dogs (a yellow lab and 2 dachshunds) and 2 cats (orange tabbies). In her free time, she enjoys hiking with their dogs, paddle boarding in the summers and snowboarding in the winters.
