Mandie Walke, Practice Manager and Property Manager for Animal Eye Clinic
Mandie has been with Animal Eye Clinic since 1997. Before she was hired at Animal Eye Clinic, Mandie was in high school and working for an emergency veterinary hospital where she met Dr. Paulsen. After she left the emergency clinic, she enrolled in college and intended to be a full time student. Dr. Paulsen had other plans for her and called her to become his first employee. Mandie considered that to be an exciting opportunity and jumped on the chance, which changed her life forever. She started as Dr. Paulsen's receptionist, and through Dr. Paulsen's rigorous training and attention to detail, she became his valued technician. Together, they served the Metroplex whole heartedly and have watched the practice grow from its humble beginnings to a thriving multi location practice. She now not only serves as a surgical technician but the Practice manager and Property manager for Animal Eye Clinic. She carefully designed the floor plans and the layouts for each of our clinics with our clients and patients in mind. She adores Animal Eye Clinic, as well as the clients and patients that set us apart.
At Dr. Paulsen's urging, she left Animal Eye Clinic briefly from 2000-2004 to complete her Bachelors of Science in Biology from Stephen F. Austin State University. She is highly skilled in triage, diagnostic testing, anesthesia, and surgical recovery. She has vast knowledge in veterinary pharmacology, and has over 160 hours of Ophthalmic Continuing Education. Mandie is married, has two precious children and an Australian Shepherd named Daisy Mae.
