Dr. Rachel Oberholtzer
Rachel grew up on a hobby farm in Oconomowoc and was lucky enough to have had about every variety of creature as a pet at one point or another. There was never really a question of what she wanted to be when she grew up, there was no “plan B.” She worked many jobs through school but the most influential was many years she spent as a veterinary assistant at an equine hospital.
She attended veterinary school at The University Of Wisconsin-Madison and graduated in 2010. After veterinary school she spent a year near Boston, MA for an equine internship. She then returned home to Wisconsin (She is a Midwestern girl at heart!) and practiced general small animal medicine and surgery in southern Wisconsin. Rachel truly enjoy all aspects of veterinary medicine, but some of the areas that she particularly likes are ultrasound and imaging, internal medicine, ophthalmology, and dermatology.
When Rachel is not caring for her patients, she enjoys spending time with family and friends and doing anything outdoors. Rachel and her husband have two sons, Logan (who is three and a half) and Brody (who is nineteen months) who keep them very busy! They enjoy spending time together as a family playing, fishing, traveling, watching movies, and cooking. Rachel also enjoys reading, scrapbooking and horseback riding. They have a crazy cat named Wally who completes their household. Rachel is excited to be back in her hometown to work with the team at Hallett Veterinary Hospital and put down roots for her family.
