Julie Hays-Broene has been at Deerfield since we greeted our first client in July of 1992. She started helping our hospital grow with her grooming expertise and developed quite a following. In the summer of 2000, we asked Julie to put her clippers down and help us practice medicine and surgery. Born in rural Clever, MO, Julie was raised on a dairy farm and developed common-sense wisdom for helping animals. She now uses this knowledge to manage every aspect of our practice.
