I grew up on a farm outside of Houston, MN. Through the years we had dairy cows, beef cattle, pigs and always horses. I knew eventually I would go to veterinary school, but after high school I joined the Army and served in Germany for a few years. When I came back to Minnesota I attended Winona State University and then the University Of Minnesota College Of Veterinary Medicine.
When we graduated, Naaren and I moved back to this area and I started working for Caledonia Veterinary Clinic. I have never thought of working anywhere else so buying the practice was an easy decision for us. I love this area, the community and my clients.
While I enjoy all aspects of veterinary medicine, I especially enjoy herd health, ultrasound and reproduction.
I was born in Shawnee, Oklahoma but moved to New York when I was 11 years old. Growing up, I always knew I wanted to be a veterinarian and never considered any other career path.
I graduated from Colgate University and then attended the University Of Minnesota College Of Veterinary Medicine. I met Travis in veterinary school and we were married at the beginning of our senior year. After school, Travis got a job at Caledonia Veterinary Clinic and I worked in Winona at Pet Medical center for 5 years and then in Sparta, WI at Morganside Veterinary Clinic for 4 years. It did not take long for us to realize that this was where we wanted to stay so when the opportunity came to purchase Caledonia Veterinary Clinic, we jumped at the chance! I have really enjoyed working and living in this community. I work exclusively with small animals and especially enjoy internal medicine and soft tissue surgery.
Travis and I have 3 kids - Noah, Priya and Avery. We also have 2 dogs (Lynx, a Great Dane mix and Roy, a Scottish Deerhound), 1 cat (Gordy), as well as goats, chickens, geese and guinea hens. Life is busy at our house, but we wouldn't want it any other way.
I was born and raised in La Crosse but have lived all around the country and abroad since graduating from high school.
I attended the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, then lived and worked in Los Angeles, California for three years. From there I attended Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine on St. Kitts Island in the Caribbean. I finished veterinary school at Colorado State University and then completed a reproduction internship in Northern California. I did relief work in the Twin Cities area, then moved to North Dakota and worked at a mixed animal practice for 3 1/2 years.
I enjoy working with large and small animals. I now live in La Crescent with my husband, Rick, and two fat and sassy cats named Bubba and Sam.
I grew up on a small dairy farm in NE Iowa and attended Wartburg College in Waverly, IA. I then pursued my DVM at Iowa State University where I graduated in 2009. I joined the team at the Caledonia Veterinary clinic part time in 2012.
My favorite part of this job is getting to know the pets and clients who have become part the Caledonia Vet Clinic family. I greatly enjoy the energy, humor of the staff, and the commitment to good quality medicine, surgery and preventative care.
I currently live in Spring Grove, MN with my husband, Tyler and son, Jonah. When not occupied on the farm, we enjoy spending time travelling, camping and going for motorcycle rides. I am very excited to get the chance to meet you!
Dr. Lee Edmiston is a graduate of the University Of Minnesota College Of Veterinary Medicine and brings many, many, many years of large animal experience!! Dr. Lee and his wife Deb, a Nurse Practitioner at Mayo, have a Doxie named Johnny Depp and a 'very fine mouser' of a kitty named Lennox.
Growing up on a Holstein dairy farm in south central MN helped Dr. Bridgette decide she wanted to be a veterinarian. She graduated from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine in 2011 and worked as a large animal veterinarian in WI prior to moving back to MN. Her family includes her husband Luke and young son Landon. You also might notice Walter, the truck dog riding along on calls sometimes!

In my spare time I enjoy finding projects to work on at our farm outside of New Albin and spending time with family and friends.
I graduated from Northeast Iowa Community College with a degree as a Veterinary Assistant. I've worked at a veterinary clinic ever since. I'm a people person and love animals so this is a great way to have both. I enjoy this job so much because of the variety; you never know what is going to happen from one day to the next.
My own four legged family consists of 6 cats (Bruticus, Paisy, Phillip, Poppers, Luther and Shakers), 3 dogs (a German Shepherd/Lab - Grace, a Scottish Deerhound - Rhona, and a German Shepherd/Elkhound - Eve), and a horse (Piper).
In my free time I like to read, watch movies, work out, hike and go horseback riding. I also tend bar at the High Chaparral Tavern in New Albin. I look forward to meeting you and your furry little friend the next time you come in!
I grew up in Fairmont, MN and moved to La Crosse, WI to attend Viterbo University. I graduated in 2001 with a degree in biology. After graduation, I worked at a veterinary clinic for 5 years.

Hi and welcome to our clinic! I have been working here for over 30 years. I have enjoyed working with the farmers and pet owners along with their furry friends.

I grew up on the outskirts of Dorchester, IA. I moved to Cedar Falls, IA for 6 years where I attended UNI and Hawkeye. I've always had a love for animals and have always tried rescuing anything that needed help. I currently have 3 cats of my own: Delilah, Felix, & Remy. I adopted Delilah and found the other two as stray kittens that I was able to catch and provide a home. In my free time, I do a lot of camping and fishing with my family, hunting, reading, artsy stuff, and of course spending time with my fur babies. I enjoy meeting everyone's furry friends at the clinic and can't wait to meet everyone that comes in!
