WELCOME TO SOUTHSIDE VETERINARY CLINIC
Lynde grew up on a farm near Emporia, Kansas, after returning to the United States from Papua New Guinea, where her parents had been missionaries. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from Mid-America Nazarene College in Olathe, Kansas with a double major in Biology and Chemistry. After getting married, she moved to Lincoln, Nebraska. She worked in the laboratory of the area's trauma hospital for almost ten years, when she felt the need for a change of direction. She started working at Belmont Veterinary Clinic and returned to college at University of Nebraska-Lincoln so she could apply to veterinary school. She was accepted into Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine and graduated with honors in 2004. She accepted an associate's position at High Plains Animal Hospital in Borger, Texas and lived there for five years until the declining health of her parents made it necessary for her to move back to Kansas. After doing relief work for Southside Veterinary Clinic for several years, she joined our staff full-time in September 2020. Her favorite small animal to work with is cats and she is known for her cat-themed scrub tops. She enjoys quilting, working in her flower beds, and square dancing.
