Mandy like most employees at Countryside also has her share of furry loved ones at her home:

  • Breeze - Pomeranian mix
  • Ana - Chihuahua
  • Bandit - Chihuahua
  • Max - Border Collie (she shares custody of Max with her mom)

Mandy is new to the New Richmond area and has been taking her time to explore the different walking trails around here. She has even managed to find a few favorites!

Miranda Anderson


Miranda joined our team in August of 2020 as a full-time receptionist. She comes to us with experience in the veterinary industry, she worked 2 years at Isanti Pet Clinic as an assistant and isn't afraid to step away from the desk and get her hands dirty! She went to Argosy and will start classes soon at WITC here in New Richmond. Miranda lives with her fiance Tyler Roush who she met while they were working together at Hazelden.


Miranda also has her household full of loving pets:

  • Milo - St. Bernard/Rottweiler mix - he is a total momma's boy.
  • Lacey - Lab/Collie mix - she used to be Miranda's parents dog but now she is obsessed with Tyler.
  • Indigo - Siberian Husky - Indy is completely spoiled rotten.
  • Sophie - Torti Cat - she is 13 years old and Miranda has had her since 7th grade. She may resemble grumpy cat by her looks, however she truly is the sweetest cat.
  • Stuart - Hedgehog - in Miranda's book he is the best pet ever!

Being a dog mom is what Miranda prides herself on and has become her life! When she is not working at the clinic she loves to take them to the river or to the camper they have in Webster. She is  a big fan of the office as well as listening to music. With any spare time she finds, Miranda enjoys hanging out at the river or pool.

Miranda is a fan of the Fairbanks Ice Dogs and Patriots. However her fiance is trying to convert her to a Viking's fan and is doing so successfully!

Judy Olson

Judy lives by Amery with her husband, Kermit and her family includes daughter, Shannan - daughter, Brandy,(children, Ethan & Lola) – son, Nate (wife RuthAnn and children Tristan & Levi) – daughter, Brianna (husband Wayne and grandpuppy, Vincent & Zoe.
