Dr. Lisa was born and raised in Duluth. As an East High School student at age 16, she came to NSVH to job shadow Dr. Boucher; that experience lit a spark and opened a door. During her pre-vet undergrad years at UMD she cleaned our kennels and eventually moved up to a veterinary assistant position in our hospital. After graduation, and as a mother of a 9-month old baby, she headed vet school at the U of M. She still spent summers as a veterinary assistant at NSVH and even completed her externship with us, adding two more babies to her family as she went! Upon graduation in 2013 she was hired at a private practice and worked there until 2017 when she joined NSVH. She is thrilled to be in the practice where she grew up and we are so happy to have her back!
Dr. Lisa Juten loves the challenges that being a veterinarian brings and that not one day is the same. She enjoys working with her clients to help form a bond with their pet and strives to offer fun exams, creating a comfortable atmosphere for everyone.
Outside of the hospital she has a full and busy life! A fourth baby was added to her family in December of 2016. Lisa, her husband, and their children love to spend time playing outdoors; swimming, biking, hiking, 4-wheeling, sledding, and downhill skiing. They have two beautiful Springer Spaniels; 10-year old Kelo and 2-year old “monster” Suki who both love to be a part of this active family. Her years balancing family and education have helped her learn perspective and what is really important in life – an amazing skill she is grateful to have!
