Willow Creek's Staff


Liza Elsaesser

Liza recently graduated from Brown Mackie College with a degree in veterinary technology and is working hard on preparing to take her board examination over the summer in order to reach her goal of becoming a registered veterinary technician (RVT).


Liza’s passion for animals began at an early age; starting in middle school, Liza began volunteering at a local animal shelter and in high school, Liza completed her required internship at a local animal hospital. Since graduating from high school, Liza has focused on raising her son, Bradley, and maintaining Dean’s List in her college veterinary technology program. While being a mom, studying rigorously and working hard in school has consumed much of her time, Liza also makes plenty of time for all of her fur-babies. She is a dog-mom to three dogs: Harley (a shepherd/lab mix), Pebbles (a yellow Labrador retriever), and Wyonna (a Plott hound), a cat-mom to her kitty named Cooper, and a horse-mom to her quarter horse gelding, Blue.


Liza enjoys hiking with her son & dogs, spending time at the barn, riding her horse, reading, fishing and spending time with her family.
