Dr. Carrie Byerly grew up on a farm north of Westfield, raising cattle, sheep, and hogs. She was a 10 year 4H member and very active in her church and community. After graduating in 2000, she attended Purdue where she was a member of the AAMB marching band. She also obtained her DVM from Purdue School of Veterinary Medicine in 2009.
Dr. Byerly and her husband, Nate, moved to Corydon, Iowa after graduation and she practiced large and small animal medicine. Injuries forced her to quit doing large animal work and she began to focus on small animal work. They moved back to Indiana in 2014 and settled in Kokomo. They have two beautiful children, Clara and Joe, as well as a golden retriever named Comet and a cat named Boots. In her spare time, Dr. Byerly enjoys gardening, camping, working out, reading, and music. She is very excited to be a member of the Northeast family and can’t wait to meet your furry kids!
Amy McGinnis is the Clinic Manager/RVT at Northeast Animal Clinic. She has lived in Kokomo, Indiana her whole life.
Animals have always been a great love of hers. When Amy is not taking care of animals, she enjoys working out, being with family, and relaxing at her country home with her husband Joe and two furry kids, Bella and Piper.
Karen started working at the Northeast Animal Clinic in 2006, working seasonally during her summer and winter breaks while in college. She graduated from Purdue University in 2009 with a Bachelors in Animal Sciences with a minor in Behavior and Well-being. She interned at the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo in the Aquatics Section. She primarily worked with the South African Black Footed Penguins and North American River Otters. She also assisted with the care taking of the enclosures for the Mississippi Alligators and California Sea Lions and occasionally helped feed the Bobcats when extra assistance was needed. Upon completing her internship, she moved back to her hometown of Kokomo and soon after was working full time at the Northeast Animal Clinic as a Kennel Attendant.
My name is Jan Burke. I was born and lived in Colorado until I met my husband 35 years ago.
I am now firmly entrenched as a country gal in Indiana.
I have worked at Northeast Animal Clinic for the past 15 years. In fact, when I first came to Indiana, I observed with Dr. Maroney and Dr. Bailey who owned the practice before Dr. Lesa. I
graduated from Purdue University in 1985 and saw Dr. Terry and Dr. Lesa who were attending Purdue at the same time. At the end of my schooling, I completed the Registered Veterinary Certification tests in Colorado as well as Indiana. I worked at Purdue and another small animal clinic in Kokomo before
taking time away from work to raise and homeschool our three children.
In the animal realm, I have one outside cat who is really spoiled and earns his keep on our goat farm.
I enjoy making ice cream, soft cheese, and sharing milk from my goats with my lactose intolerant son
I enjoy working at Northeast Animal Clinic because I love the small, homey environment. I am currently
the primary surgical technician, and I also take care of the animals when they come in for appointments.
I love performing the hands-on procedures because it gives me more time with the animals and gives
me my “animal fix”.

Stacey Teagle is our newest veterinarian, who joined Northeast Animal Clinic in August 2020. Dr. Teagle graduated from Indiana State University in May 2013 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and a minor in Business Administration. She graduated from Purdue University College of Veterinarian Medicine in May 2019. Dr. Teagle’s fellow colleagues view her as a charismatic, highly-motivated individual. She enjoys playing board games, reading fiction novels, and hiking with her dog. Dr. Teagle has a 7 year old Rottweiler/Coonhound mix named Sage, a mischievous 4 year old cat named Jingles, a feeder mouse named Daffodil, a betta fish named Saturn, and a pleco named Hank. She hopes to travel across Europe at some point in the near future. If Dr. Teagle were to win the lottery she would pay off her veterinary student loans, buy a house, and open a boarding kennel, but continue to work. She is a firm believer in “Pets are a responsibility, not a right.” Hakuna Matata!
