Emily Osak

Office Manager

Emily is our chaos coordinator at Harvester Animal Clinic! She is always ready to jump in and help where ever she is needed and we would be completely lost without her. She first got started in veterinary med over 21 years ago because she simply loved being around animals. Years later she still loves being around animals and her favorite part is ensuring that animals and clients both have a great visit. If she could offer one piece of advice for pet owners it would be to keep their pets on heartworm prevention. At home, she gets her slobbery kisses from her beautiful rescue dog Jojo along with her cat Oliver!
