New Babies, New Faces

It's been an eventful summer at BLVD and now that it's winding down we have a couple exciting announcements! 


First of all, we welcomed two very special "BLVD Babies" (human) in the past few weeks. Charlene, one of our Certified Veterinary Technicians, gave birth to her daughter Lily Aria the day after she was last scheduled before her maternity leave! Both new mom and daughter are healthy and doing great.

One week later, Dr. Geisler also gave birth to a little girl, Charlie Hart. We had the pleasure of meeting little Charlie just this past week! Dr. Geisler and Charlie are both healthy and it was wonderful to meet who we hope is another future veterinary professional!

To help accommodate your pet needs while these two important team members are on maternity leave and to increase our overall appointment capacity in 2019, we're excited to say we've made some key hires in the past several months! 

Many of you have already had the chance to meet Dr. Aracely Cordes in the past months. We've recently hired Dr. Cordes as a full time veterinarian after she spent the first half of 2018 supporting us as a regular relief veterinarian. Dr. Cordes is a native Chicagoan, University of Illinois alum, and fellow resident of Logan Square along with her husband, 2 children, 2 senior dogs and 1 cat. Check out her bio here. Dr. Cordes will practice almost exclusively at our Logan Square practice.

In August we welcomed Dr. Josie Arbogast as our most recent full time veterinarian. Dr. Arbogast hails from Indianapolis and is an graduate of the veterinary school at The Ohio State University. Dr. Arbogast has a Great Dane named Lucca and currently resides in Lakeview. Her bio is also on our Meet the Team page. She will be primarily practicing out of our River North location.

In addition to Dr. Cordes and Dr. Arbogast, you'll see some new faces in our support staff as we grow to meet the needs of appointment requests.
