Wendy J.  Woodard<br>DVM photo

Wendy J. Woodard
DVM

Dr. Wendy Woodard grew up on a farm in Grand Ledge, Michigan, where she was surrounded by dogs, cats, rabbits, horses, chickens, and ducks. Her grandfather is a physician, so she was exposed to the medical field early on in life. For Dr. Woodard, a career as a veterinarian was the perfect combination of her love for science, her fascination with medicine, and her adoration of animals!
After showing horses in the 4-H program and helping her biology teacher on his pig farm during high school, Dr. Woodard attended Michigan State University to receive both her undergraduate degree and her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. She graduated in 1993, then began practicing at a companion-animal and equine practice in Metamora. In 1996, Dr. Woodard moved to Frankenmuth and worked part-time in a companion-animal facility before joining the Mayfair Animal Hospital family in 2011.
Dr. Woodard took over ownership duties of the clinic in 2015. She’s particularly fond of diagnostics, and never tires of putting together a patient’s puzzle pieces to arrive at a treatment plan and resolution. Dr. Woodard also likes the variety that her work brings; every day offers something new and exciting!
In her time away from the clinic, Dr. Woodard enjoys gardening, golfing, biking, waterskiing, downhill skiing in Colorado with her family and friends, cheering on the Michigan State football team, and hiking around the area with her dogs. She has four canine companions: Maddie is a yellow Lab who thinks it’s her job to pull large rocks from the bottom of the lake; chocolate Lab Jake was rescued from Mayfair Animal Hospital in 2012; Meg is a high-energy Jack Russell terrier who has something to say about everything; and Sam is a mixed-breed pooch who comes to work with Dr. Woodard nearly every day.

Melissa Vermette
DVM

When Dr. Melissa Vermette was only five years old, she rode along with her mother to pick out the family dog. She recalls being chased by a herd of adorable puppies, and getting attacked with slobbery, loving kisses upon falling to the ground. On the way home—new puppy in tow—she asked her mother what kind of job she could have that would allow her to work with animals. Dr. Vermette has been hooked on veterinary medicine ever since that fateful day!
Dr. Vermette was raised in Clio with her parents and two sisters. She attended Michigan State University to receive her Bachelor’s degree, then headed to Iowa State University to study veterinary medicine and earn her Doctorate. She was especially proud to have her very first peer-reviewed article published during her veterinary school career!
After practicing in California for a year, Dr. Vermette moved back to her home state and joined the Mayfair Animal Hospital family in early February of 2018 as an Associate Veterinarian. She brings with her special passions for internal medicine, neurology, and client education—Dr. Vermette loves to advise her clientele on the best possible ways to care for their beloved family members, and she also likes to witness the incredible bonds between pets and owners firsthand.
When time permits away from work, Dr. Vermette enjoys camping, biking and playing sports, reading good books, watching movies, baking, crafting, singing, and spending quality time with her family.

Kassidy
Hospital Assistant

I have a dog named Paislee and a kitty named Salem. Both babies go pretty much everywhere that I do. Since I was little, my specialty has been finding stray animals and bringing them home. When I was 7, I brought home a baby opposum that I thought was a stray kitten - HA! I spend my free time with my family and my pets. I play the electric and acoustic guitar as well as the piano. My favorite thing to do is to go to concerts! I plan on staying in the veterinary field and one day opening my own doggy day care/kennel. Previously I enjoyed working at Disney World's pet care facility in FL.

Upon graduating high school, Amanda received one of the best presents she’s ever gotten: a spunky pit bull puppy.

She first joined the clinic team in 2003 and explored other opportunities briefly (including working with goats, alpacas, kangaroos, and even a three-toed sloth!) before returning to where she felt most comfortable: Mayfair Animal Hospital.
At home, Amanda lives with her husband, their son Wyatt, and a menagerie of pets. The family has four cats—Star, Decon, Mickie, and Minnie—as well as three rescued pit bull terriers who go by Sadie, Diesel, and Doodle. The newest addition to the fur-family is Betty Big Ears, a loveable bloodhound puppy.
When time permits between work and family life, Amanda enjoys mud-bogging with her husband in their truck. She never tires of the thrill and adrenaline the sport brings; some of her dogs have even enjoyed a ride or two!

My name is Stephanie Haisne and I have been a part of the Mayfair team since November 2018. Although this is my first time working in the veterinary field, I have a love for animals that goes way back to childhood. That love probably stems from growing up on my parent’s horse farm. It is so fulfilling knowing I get to spend each working day contributing to helping animals. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my son and riding horses.
