Paula Hock

Paula is a Licensed Veterinary Technician (LVT) who joined the Oakwood family in 2016. She graduated from Baker College in 2013 and enjoys working with companion animals. Believing that the human-animal bond is one of the greatest there is she will go out of her way to help strengthen that connection. She loves looking at specimens under the microscope and researching information on what she has seen along with having in-depth discussions with the doctors. Paula keeps our in-house lab along with specimens we mail out moving smoothly. You may have had a conversation or two on the phone with her as she is excellent at educating our clients. She is a native of Traverse City living here with her husband, two children and two cats. Her favorite past-times are reading, spending time with her family, and being outdoors.

We LOVE Dr. Henshaw and his staff!

They are so friendly and helpful, and are excellent at remembering details about our crew. They were very accommodating when I wanted to bring all three in at once for their annual checkups - we were like a small circus in the exam room!

Dr. Henshaw's style is relaxed but very attentive and he's very honest about his thoughts. You can tell he's in this for the health and well being of your pet, NOT the cash.

Highly recommend Oakwood!
