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!
