This summer our associate veterinarian, Dr. Molly Lien, was awarded the Kindness Award from the Wisconsin Humane Society’s Wildlife Rehabilitation Center.
Dr. Lien has donated her time and services to the Center for the past 2 1/2 years and enjoys being able to give back to the community. She has a special interest in wildlife rehabilitation and previously completed an internship in Wildlife and Conservation Medicine. Pictured to the right is Dr. Lien with Crystal Sharlow-Schaefer and Elizabeth Torstv full-time time wildlife rehabilitators from the WHS Wildlife Center; followed by Dr. Lien working with 2 wildlife patients including a Cooper’s hawk and a juvenile great blue heron.
About Dr. Lien
Dr. Molly Lien was constantly exposed to wildlife, a variety of ecosystems, and hands-on animal care during her time growing up in the great outdoors of Michigan. She volunteered with local nature centers and a wildlife rehabilitation center as a young girl, which only further cemented her desire to help animals in whatever way she could.
Dr. Lien graduated with her veterinary degree in the spring of 2011 before beginning her career at a mixed-animal practice in Michigan. Afterward, she completed an internship in wildlife and conservation medicine at the Clinic for Rehabilitation of Wildlife in Sanibel Island, Florida. The experience led her to a realization: her true passion was caring for both small-animal and exotic patients. That’s when Dr. Lien moved to Milwaukee to join the Brook-Falls Veterinary Hospital family! She also volunteers her time and services to the Wisconsin Humane Society’s Wildlife Rehabilitation Center when she’s not helping pets here at the hospital.
