Dr. Califf Hello! I am Dr. Lindsay Califf and I am the newest addition to the Mt Pleasant family. I received my undergraduate degree from Illinois State University in 2005 and my Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Illinois in 2009. My spectacular husband, Rick, and I share a busy house with 3 cats: Colby Jack, Butters, and Bruce Wayne; 2 dogs: Joey and Biscuit; and an amazingly perfect 2-legged baby boy who just celebrated his first birthday, Aiden. In my free time my passions are: reading anything I can get my hands on, cooking and baking delicious treats that I spoil my fellow staff with, and of course my son who I love to take everywhere I can to show him this beautiful world and sights. I absolutely love my job and my veterinary passion is internal medicine, but I really enjoy being able to see my patients grow from adorable, energetic, crazy puppies to adorable, mature seniors. Being part of my clients and their pets lives, helping them be the best they can be while also helping their parents accomplish that in anyway they are able is what gets me up and excited to come to "work" every day. I can't wait to see you and your pet at the clinic!
