Dr. Michelle Horvath
I was born in Paterson, New Jersey and grew up in Glendale, Arizona. I received my Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Arizona, and I completed my Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at Washington State University in 2001. I live in Anthem with my husband, girls, and our collection of critters.
I enjoy spending time with my friends and family when I’m not at work. We like hiking and walking the dogs. My favorite adventures are related to travel, so we try to go someplace new every chance we get!
Dr. Jason Gold
I was born in south Jersey, and grew up in south Florida. I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Animal Biology from University of Florida in 1997, and received my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at Ross University in 2001 followed by my clinical training at Purdue. I practiced veterinary medicine in Long Island, NY, until 2005 before moving to Arizona. My areas of special interest include preventative and internal medicine.
In my spare time, I enjoy exercising, spending time with my fiancé and daughter, using the Force to battle storm troopers, and trying out exotic foods from galaxies far, far away. I also enjoy taking care of my puggles, Ginger and Gill.
Dr. Aubrielle Williams
I was born and raised in Phoenix, AZ, and attended Colorado State University-Pueblo after accepting a soccer scholarship. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, and went on to earn my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Ross University in May 2016 after completing my clinical training at Colorado State University. In 2016, I completed my certification to practice veterinary medical acupuncture, and am excited to be able to offer this additional therapy along with Dr. Simonson.
I love to be outdoors - hiking, playing soccer, scuba diving, snowboarding - as well as traveling, and spending time with my fiancé, family, friends, and two dogs named Dustin and Chloe.
Dr. Kim Hiller
I was born and raised in Phoenix. After attending college at the University of Michigan, I worked for several years in other fields before deciding to pursue my lifelong dream of becoming a veterinarian. I completed a Master’s of Science at Colorado State University and then attended Oregon State University for veterinary school. After graduation, I completed a one-year internship at Pet Emergency and Specialty Center in San Diego, where I focused primarily on emergency and critical care.
Before joining the team at Norterra Animal Hospital, I worked at a general practice in Poway, CA. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, hiking, visiting local restaurants and breweries, and spending time with family and friends. My husband and I share our house with our two children and two schnauzer mixes.
Dr. Zane Gouker
I grew up on a small farm in Pinetop-Lakeside, AZ where I was surrounded by a wide variety of animals from a very young age. My upbringing led to my love of animals of all sizes and I’ve had the privilege of having experience with both small and large animals. I received my Bachelor of Animal Sciences from the University of Arizona and ultimately earned my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree at Colorado State University. My favorite veterinary discipline is cardiology.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my wife and playing fetch with our Dalmatian, Freja. I love being outdoors and going hiking or fishing with my family and friends. Some of my interests include country music and football. Go Packers!

I felt like they really cared for my animal. They were able to get my cat in when I couldn’t find anyone else that would get her in. They kept me updated and I felt she was safe when I left her. It was a long drive from our house but cant see taking my animal anywhere else now. I would definitely recommend them.
I have been coming here for about a year-and-a-half now. I have never had a bad experience. The entire staff is so professional and warm, I've never had any hesitation about bringing in my dog. I will gladly recommend Norterra to anyone.
I’ve already referred family and friends over the years. My husband and I can never have enough great things to say about Norterra Animal Hopsital. Everyone is so wonderful and they are always so attentive to any needs or questions you may have. They don’t try to treat your pets for things they don’t need and always listen to you. We will always bring our pets here!
Everyone was very friendly, kind and willing to address all of my concerns and questions. Happy my furrball and I made the change to Norterra Animal Hospital.
The vet took the time to explain everything that was going on with my dog, possible courses of treatment, issues we may encounter in the future, etc. She answered all of my questions. Then the team checked in with us the next day and answered more questions. Great service!
