Dr. Jordan feels strongly that the body is not just a machine with many parts but an ecosystem that must adapt continuously to the world around us in order to stay healthy. She graduated from UC Davis in 1986 and has enjoyed caring for Sonoma County pets for over 30 years.
In 1992, she purchased Coddingtown Veterinary Clinic and expanded our services beyond standard western medicine to include acupuncture, herbal medicine, laser therapy, nutritional and stem cell therapy. The practice is now completely integrative to give our clients a broader menu of therapies available for their pets (including ocelots!).
Dr. Stanley has been working at Coddingtown Veterinary Clinic since 2011 and in addition to seeing our furry patients he has added reptiles to our patient family. He has had an extensive array of exotic pets of his own and his experience is a real asset to our clients and our staff. He has many years of experience in both Western and Eastern Veterinary Medicine.
We are excited to welcome Dr. Lisa Pesch to the CVC team! In addition to regular medicine she is also certified in Reiki, acupuncture, and flower essences, and has extensive experience in herbal medicine, homeopathy, chiropractic, nutraceuticals, and therapeutic laser treatment.
Dr. Pesch says, “I have been blessed with the good fortune of finding a path into holistic care for animals. My goal is to support animals in their endeavors and acknowledge them as individuals. I love connecting with my patients during their treatments. I also enjoy teaching humans how they can provide healthy support for their animal friends.”
Dr. Lisa Pesch received her DVM with Thesis degree in 1996 from Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine. She has been certified by the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society since 1997. She completed the Options for Animals course in Animal Chiropractic in 2001. She completed Dr. Richard Pitcairn’s Professional Course in Homeopathy in 2000 and his Advanced Course in Veterinary Homeopathy in 2004. She has been an instructor for Dr. Pitcairn’s Professional Course in Veterinary Homeopathy. Dr. Pesch has studied and practiced Psychomotor therapy since 1999. Dr Pesch teaches for the RVT program at the Santa Rosa Junior College and has been a guest lecturer for the Holistic Veterinary Medicine Club at UC Davis. She loves teaching and has offered a wide variety of lectures for veterinary professionals as well as the general public.
Ashley has been working with us since March 2016. She has 10 horses and rides in rodeos as a barrel racer. Ashley says the best thing about working here is our wonderful clients and the fascinating pets they bring in!
I have been a proud member of the CVC crew since 2008, and I have grown to think of so many clients and patients as extended family! Having a personal connection with my job makes work so much more rewarding. My own furry family includes a recent kitten adoption and lots of fish! The great thing about being here at CVC is that the education never stops so we can give the best options possible as medical science advances.
I have been working with animals since I was 13 and it has brought me some of the greatest joys in my life. So much can be learned through animal education, training, and working within the veterinary community I have dedicated my life to empowering people to help animals and return their love. What I enjoy about working at Coddingtown Veterinary Clinic is being part of a team that champions life quality and pet-owner bonds.
I have always had a love for animals and feel so fortunate that I get the opportunity to wake up every day and pursue my passion. Coddingtown Veterinary Clinic was my first job in the veterinary field and it has been an amazing experience being part of such a humble team. I have learned so much since becoming a part of this “family” in 2014 and continue to learn more each day.
I’ve been working here since 2014 and feel like I am the luckiest person to have found this job! It is challenging and interesting and allows me to meet wonderful people and animals while expanding my animal care knowledge. I grew up in Guerneville in a house with 2 dogs, 5 cats, 9 chickens, a rabbit, and a guinea pig – this is where my love of animals and passion for natural remedies is rooted. Some of my background is in socializing dogs and working at a dog rescue and I believe strongly in adopting rescue animals.
I’ve been working here since 2002 and I still love it! Dr. Jordan helped me pick out my dog Dinga at the animal shelter. You may see her (the dog) sniffing for lost cookies around the office!
