Bonnie Burns-Oberlander, DVM
Owner and Veterinarian
Dr. Burns-Oberlander was born and raised in the small town of Salisbury, MD. Her family loved animals and had many types of pets, including cats, dogs, birds, mice, snakes, and hamsters. Science was always her passion in school, and she decided in the second grade that she was going to be a doctor.
After finishing high school, she moved across the country to attend college at the University of California, San Diego, and graduated with a biology degree. She was then accepted to the University of California, Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and graduated in 1996. Dr. Burns returned to San Diego to complete an internship in small animal medicine and surgery. She worked as a veterinarian in Fresno and Monterey, California, before moving to Eugene with her husband and daughters in 2004.
After working for a practice in Santa Clara for six years, Dr. Burns decided to start her own mobile practice. She enjoys being able to get to know her clients and take the time to give quality care to her patients. It really is a great way to practice veterinary medicine.
Dr. Burns enjoys traveling, hiking, boating, cooking, and helping her husband with his winery and tasting room when she is not working.
Dr. Eleanor Teplin grew up outside of Washington D.C. riding horses along the Potomac River. She spent several years living in beautiful Vermont and, during that time, earned her bachelor’s degree in mathematics from the University of Vermont. She moved to Oregon in 2004 and graduated from the Oregon State University’s Veterinary school in 2012. She lives in Eugene with her husband, their three children, two dogs, four cats, a sugar glider, four chickens, and numerous fish.
Dr. Teplin uses a whole-patient approach to finding a balance between modern and alternative therapies. She enjoys surgery and dentistry as well as acupuncture. She loves mobile practice because the animals are much more comfortable, and she learns more about her patients’ health by understanding the environment they live in.
Dr. Amber Roegner joined EMV staff in August of 2020 because we matched her desire for pursuing compassionate and quality veterinary care that takes a holistic approach to the well-being of pets and owners. Dr. Amber grew up on the east coast in Washington, D.C., and Atlanta, GA, and then ventured out west several years after college. In 2014, she graduated from the University of California, Davis, with a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine and a Ph.D. in pharmacology & toxicology. Dr. Amber divides her time between working for Eugene Mobile Vet as a part-time veterinarian, supporting area non-profits as a staff and relief veterinarian, and a research toxicologist focused on global health and water quality. Her clinical interests include preventative medicine and nutrition, pharmacology, toxicology, infectious disease, complementary approaches, and end of life care. She is currently training in acupuncture and hopes to finish in June 2021. When not working, Dr. Amber enjoys running on all sorts of terrain, swimming outdoors in the rain, dancing, and exploring music, authors, cuisines, and languages.
Kate grew up in San Jose, California, with two cats, and started working with their family vet when she was 18 years old. She moved to San Diego when she was 19 and expanded her experience working with avian & exotic specialists, where she found her love of both feathered and furry creatures of all sizes. She moved to Eugene in 2016 to attend the University of Oregon and graduated in June 2020 with a major in anthropology and a minor in earth sciences. Kate joined our team in the Summer of 2019 and enjoys working at this caring, mobile practice since pets are less stressed and happier in their own homes. She shares a home in Eugene with her partner, their senior dog, two cats, and a “meowing” Senegal Parrot.
My name is Crystal, and I have been working in the veterinary field for four years now. I love working with and helping people who care about animal health and happiness as much as I do. I studied for many years at Oregon State University, got my bachelor’s degree in animal science, and considered veterinary school. I have two cats and a little dog I love dearly. They are quite entertaining and bring me joy daily. In my free time, I love to play video games on my computer or my Xbox. I also really enjoy seeing all that Oregon has to offer, from hiking to swimming, etc.
Heather recently moved to Oregon with her little dog Duck and a flock of houseplants from California. She groomed dogs for five years before deciding to pursue a veterinary medicine career in 2016 when she started working as an assistant, and she joined our mobile practice in the Summer of 2020. Heather enjoys dog training, gardening, remodeling, traveling, and painting.
Ashley grew up on a ranch in eastern Oregon, where her passion for animals started at a young age. She has been working in veterinary medicine, on and off for approximately nine years, and joined the Eugene Mobile Veterinary Services team in October of 2020. Ashley enjoys spending time with her daughter, family, and two dogs when not at work.
Grace grew up in Virginia, where she spent her time horseback riding, caring for her chickens, and rescuing feral kittens in her neighborhood. About three years ago, she moved to Denver, Colorado, where she started working in the veterinary field, which further developed her love for helping animals in need. Since then, she has acquired four years of experience working as a receptionist for veterinary practices. She is a new resident of Eugene, OR, and joined our team in October 2020. Grace shares her home with two rambunctious cats with hopes to adopt more in the future. Life away from the clinic is spent working towards a degree in psychology, exploring nature, biking, and visiting local breweries.
