ACM's Support Staff
We are proud to introduce the people at the reception desk and behind the scenes that work hard to take care of our patients and clients.
|ACM's practice manager is Jeff Yach. Taking care of all of the business needs of the practice keeps him very busy. Jeff earned his bachelor of science degree from MSU after growing up in Warsaw, MO. He currently lives in Nixa, MO with his wife Paula and his three children Jessica, Jordan and Caleb. While not at work, Jeff is busy keeping up with his kids and the sports they participate in. Jeff loves working in a veterinary practice because of the animals and the clients to whom those pets are important.|
|Vickie Golubski is our head technician. Vickie has been part of our practice team since 2001 and is a familiar face to most of our clients. She lives in Monett with her husband Martin and their dogs, cats, and ferrets. While not at work, Vickie spends times with her pets, her two grown children and her two grandchildren. Vickie also rehabilitates wildlife that is brought to ACM for the conservation department. Deer, baby birds, raccoons, opossums, raptors and owls have all called her mama in their own way.|
