Watch back our Interview the Team:
Our goal is to improve lives: The lives of our staff, our clients, our patients, and our community. We are not willing to sacrifice any of those to benefit the others. We care, we heal, and we all thrive.
We are an integrative practice, and believe the more tools we have the better we can serve our mission. Traditional Chinese medicine blends with conventional Western medicine.
We are always looking for talented, compassionate team members. We offer a great working environment, great benefits, flexible schedule, paid PTO, and a great work-life balance. When we say we are family-friendly, we mean truly FAMILY FRIENDLY. You need to be off at 2 to pick up your kids, we’re in. You need to meet up with friends you haven’t seen in far too long, let’s do it. We don’t dictate what qualifies as “family time” so it’s your decision.
We believe the health and well-being of our staff is paramount. You can’t pour from an empty cup, so we do everything to make sure our cups are filled every day. We thrive on continuing education, and want to help every employee reach their personal and professional goals. If you have a passion, we’re here to support you.
Work-Life balance is a term that is thrown around – but at Home Vet, we believe everyone’s definition is different. We strive to meet everyone’s needs, but our staff is our focus. We don’t tolerate bullying, from each other or our clients. We don’t love drama in the workplace – we’re a team, and only as strong as our weakest link. Culture is #1 here, and we won’t stand for any disruptions or negativity. We want to enjoy our workplace and have fun.
Caring – it is at the core of what we do. We listen, we discuss, and we include our clients in everything we do. We care about our staff – goals, ideas, health, and happiness.
Healing – that’s why we’re all here, right? We want the best
for everyone – from our staff, to our clients, to our patients, and our community.
Thriving – Everyone needs the opportunity to truly thrive, and we provide that with work-life balance, good pay, and great benefits. We believe we make our own happiness, and Home Vet supports whatever that means to you.
What makes your organization a great place to work?
At Home Vet, we believe your time is valuable. Period. You will be compensated fairly, have room to grow, space to learn, and time off when you need it.
We strive to meet our client’s goals for their families, and your goals for your family.
We believe in work-life balance, and will work with you to achieve what that looks like for you, not for us.
We believe in fun. We believe in acceptance. We do not believe in bullying, drama, or uncomfortable situations. We believe in finding the right fit, and if you’re it, we believe in making a work home for you here.
Describe an ideal employee at your organization
Our ideal employee is passionate about pet health, but wants a place to grow. Someone who has goals, and would like to settle in our clinic. We also value the ability to be used as a stepping stone to achieving employee goals, both personally and professionally, and will help you any way we can.
Your personal and professional achievements are as important to us as they are to you. We want to have fun, staff bonding, a true sense of team. Every employee is important, and we want them all to be invested, happy, and included.
Family-friendly initiatives at this workplace
We treat each employee as an individual. Whatever your family needs, we can figure it out.
Family-Friendly is not just a buzz word for us. We can work around family commitments you have. We can work around agility trials for your pup. We can work around your purrfect cat’s show schedule.
Flexible work initiatives at the workplace
Everyone has their own goals, and their own definition of an “ideal” workplace. Let’s make that happen for you. We value what you can contribute to our team, in whatever way is meaningful to you.
Diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives you have
We hire qualified individuals, no matter what your needs. We appreciate diversity, celebrate and encourage differences, and believe we all have something to contribute.
Sustainability initiatives you have in the workplace
We offer good pay, good benefits, and a fun workplace. Culture is the number one goal, and we are looking for people who would like to help us create the best team possible.
Structured career progression initiatives at the workplace
We will set up an independent achievement plan together, and as you meet goals, you can move upward in our organization. We’ll decide together what that looks like for you. Special interests are brilliant, and we will do what we can to help you learn, grow, and specialize in what you love.
DVMom owned, chamber of commerce member, community activist. Integrative clinic with all approaches considered for the best care for our pets.
Care. Heal. Thrive. That’s our motto, for our pets and our staff. Our goal is to improve lives: The lives of our staff, our clients, our patients, and our community. We are not willing to sacrifice any of those to benefit the others.
We are an integrative practice, and believe the more tools we have the better we can serve our mission. Traditional Chinese medicine blends with conventional Western medicine. We believe in whole-body health, and aim to provide complete care for our clients, their pets, and their families.
Sioux Falls, South Dakota, USA is a growing city with a very small town feel. Although the largest city in South Dakota, at about 250,000 in the metro area, it is not too big to know your neighbors. We love this community, and know you will too. We might also mention there is no state income tax, so you keep more of your wages. Winter sunrises, tons of kids’ events, a large event center, and multiple minor league sports – Sioux Falls is a great place to live and raise a family.
Team Members (10)
Dr. Lisa Coder graduated from the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine in 2013. She then completed a year-long internship in a private Mixed Animal with specialty/referral equine at Dakota Large Animal Clinic in Harrisburg, South Dakota. In chasing her dream to own a thriving mixed animal clinic, she and her family moved to Ottawa, Illinois. Unfortunately, that opportunity fell through, and she worked at both an exclusively small animal clinic and then as an Emergency Veterinarian at a large referral veterinary center. During this time, she attended the Chi Institute and became a certified veterinary acupuncturist.
When she and her family began missing South Dakota, Dr. Lisa searched for a job in Sioux Falls. Frustrated with the culture of veterinary medicine (weekends, on-call, itty-bitty amounts of PTO, etc) she left clinical medicine and took a job with the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service based in Sioux Falls. Although she learned a ton of cool stuff, she missed the connection with pets and their owners. She opened her own corporation, Home Vet, PC in the fall of 2021, providing holistic services (acupuncture, therapy laser, herbs, tui-na body work, etc) to pets in the greater Sioux Falls area.
In March of 2023, she was offered the purchase of an existing small animal/exotics clinic (assets only) that the owner was going to close for good within two weeks, due to his own health struggles. In essence, Dr. Lisa figured out how to buy a business in 10 days. Shockingly it mostly all managed to fall into place. Things are still a bit chaotic, and we are still finding surprises as the previous owner was a bit of a pack-rat (we recently found a brand new printer, still in the shipping box, from a year ago!). She kept the staff and added new people. She is working on not only helping all the patients she inherited, but updating the clinic as well. She recently purchased a new dental table, dental station, anesthesia monitor, and lots and lots of inventory. She rebranded the new clinic as Vital Animal Veterinary Clinic (operated by Home Vet, PC).
Dr. Lisa feels that culture is the single most important quality to protect at the clinic. No one is more important to her than her staff. She loathes bullying of any kind and will not tolerate it from staff or clients (angry cats are excluded from this list). Dr. Lisa is passionate about diversity, inclusion, support, and helping her staff reach their goals. She brought a whole-body approach to medicine, using traditional medicine along with holistic options to give the best care to patients. Want to know more?

In her spare time (ha!) Lisa enjoys spending time with her two cats, Lloyd and Honey Badger, her husband and two boys, running, reading, writing, and volunteering at her church.
Abby Ontjes graduated from Globe University as a registered veterinary technician in 2013. She loves every kind of animal you can think of. She has a special passion for reptiles, and although she does not have any of her own yet, she is looking for the best fit for her home. She has 3 cats and 3 dogs (Flash, Mouse, Dora, Shadow, Mandy and Aja). She has experience in almost every aspect of operating a clinic.
In her spare time, she loves doing diamond painting, cross stitch, and reading. Her favorite television show is Bones. Also, she loves manicures and uses her fancy nails daily to open the foil linings on difficult pill bottles.
