Maggie Hirschauer, Technician Assistant,  is so thrilled to be able to help the animals of the Bitterroot Valley (your pets)! Her background and training are not with domesticated animals, but with wildlife biology and animal behavior. Her love and passion are with the birds, especially raptors.  When she is not at BFVC she helps injured wild birds with the aim of releasing them back to the wild.  In the winter she contributes to mountain lion research through the MPG Ranch by tracking the elusive cats in her beautiful backyard, the Sapphire Mountains.  You can usually find her spending time with her boyfriend and the best ever Dixie Dog (an Aussie) on their off-grid homestead, tending their garden, harvesting wild edibles, hiking in the mountains, or reading. 


Carly Fournier, Technician Assistant and receptionist,  joined Burnt Fork Veterinary Clinic in Fall 2017.  Carly grew up her in the Bitterroot Valley and has been working in veterinary medicine since 2013.  Carly enjoys spending time with her two dogs, her hubby, Jason, her daughter Freya, and a new baby on the way.  


Kathy Luedtke, Receptionist, joined our staff January of 2018.  With a genuine care of people and love for animals Kathy takes pride in ensuring our clients are happy and realize how important their pet’s needs are to each of us here at Burnt Fork Vet Clinic.  Kathy has called Montana home since 1976.  Her love of horses, the wilderness, and a rural lifestyle drew her to the community of Stevensville some twenty years ago.  When not in the office you will find Kathy enjoying the great outdoors, collecting memories with her horses, friends, and family.
