Dr. Sitaram Parvateneni, (Dr. Sita for short), started working for Banfield in 2011, after working at our Manchester location he arrived at South City in 2012. He attended N.G. Ranga Agricultural University in India and upon obtaining his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, moved to the United States to work towards his Master�s Degree in Immunology. He decided after four years of immunology research at Michigan State University, he was missing something...pets! This is what led him to us, and we have been very grateful to have him here. When he is not high-fiving the South City staff and saving lives, he is visiting Niagara Falls, sharing his spicy food or hanging out at home with his wife Vani, daughter Aarna, kitty Jooju and Labrador Starlee.
Dr. Kristen Wischmann joined Banfield in 2011. She grew up in nearby South County until attending Truman State University for her double undergraduate degree in Biology. After interning at a Big Cat Sanctuary in Arkansas, some graduate school in New Mexico, and shelter work back in Saint Louis, she thought it time to attend veterinary school. She graduated from the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Missouri-Columbia in 2011. Her fourth year she received the H. Richard Adams Scholarship in Veterinary Medicine for demonstrating exceptional interest and understanding of the human-animal bond, which remains her favorite part of her job. Describing what she does on a daily basis, Dr. Wischmann has said most simply, "I take care of families." Her specific interests include managing aging pets, canine and feline dentistry, and internal medicine. She loves to spend her free time with her husband Derek, daughter Hazel, son Walter, Hannah the cat, 2 bunnies, and 2 birds.
Dr. Jean Puccinelli joined Banfield in 2015 right here with our South City team and she has been apart of our team ever since. She grew up in Wisconsin until she left to attend St Louis University (slu) and received her undergraduate. From there she left for Ohio State and graduated with her doctorate of veterinary medicine in 2015. Her favorite part of her work day is snuggling all of the pets we see and singing to them throughout the day. She is especially passionate about our smaller breeds and dachshunds as she has one of her own Penny. Her hobby is Irish dancing which she was involved in for 17 years. In her free time she loves spending time with her husband Stephen and their pets a dachshund Penny, Kitty Marco and turtle Stewart.read more
