Dr. Nasal

Dr. Elizabeth Nasal, D.V.M.

Owner, Veterinarian

As a child, Dr. Beth Nasal was forever bringing home stray animals and doing her best to nurse them back to health. While she wasn’t able to save them all, she gave it everything she had and in the process, ultimately discovered her true passion. This desire to help animals, coupled with a fascination with science, math and medicine, naturally led her to a career in the veterinary field.

Growing up in Lower Michigan, Dr. Nasal always dreamed of becoming a Michigan State Spartan. She practiced for a short time there before moving to a practice in Illinois. After several years at that practice, Dr. Nasal relocated to Green Bay, Wisconsin where she would eventually start her own practice – Happy Tails Veterinary Clinic, which has been going strong for more than 20 years. 

Professionally, Dr. Nasal enjoys educating clients about the various treatments that are available and the reasoning behind her recommendations. She also has a special interest in dentistry because she feels it is the one procedure that can make an enormous impact on a pet’s quality of life.

At home, Dr. Nasal is married to her husband, Kevin. The family is made complete with a male Pit Bull, Whiskey – so named for the color of the beverage. Whiskey is a total cuddle bug and loves to hang out with ‘Dad.’ He was adopted from the Baraboo Animal Shelter and spent four hours in a car driving through a blizzard to get back home.

Dr. Nasal’s hobbies include running and biking, both of which she does competitively. In 2008, she completed the Wisconsin Ironman with a smile on her face nearly the entire time.



Veterinary Assistant

Malia has always had an intense love for animals. After her childhood dog fell ill, Malia took note of how kind and compassionate the veterinary staff was to her pet and her family. From that moment on, she was inspired to work in the veterinary field and help other pet owners the way that staff helped hers. Now, as a vet assistant at Happy Tails Veterinary Clinic, Malia gets a chance to pay it forward by helping other animals!

There are several facets of being at Happy Tails Veterinary Clinic that bring Malia joy. For instance, she loves the teamwork that her fellow staff members show, as someone is always available to help. She also enjoys the spontaneity and surprises that each day brings. Some days can be more challenging than others, but ultimately, each day brings its own reward.

Born and raised in Green Bay, WI, Malia made it her mission to get involved in the veterinary field at a young age. She earned her associates degree in Animal Science and is currently enrolled in a Veterinary Technician program.

When she’s not busy working with animals, you can find her tending to her pet birds and her dog, Zeva. She also enjoys rollerblading and running. In fact, she loves running so much that she’s already participated in a couple of 10K runs and half marathons, and plans to continue doing so in the future!



Office Manager / Veterinary Assistant

Growing up, Delaney’s family always had dogs. American Eskimos and Beagles were their two preferred breeds. It wasn’t until she reached adulthood and adopted her own dog, however, that Delaney decided to pursue a career working with animals. When her husky mix, Opiuo, experienced a medical scare, Delaney became obsessed with the veterinary world – a world that she is thrilled to finally be a part of!

Delaney’s journey began stocking shelves at a pet supply store. From there, she moved to Green Bay and landed a job at a doggie daycare, where she started out as a handler and eventually got promoted to receptionist. She joined the Happy Tails team in October of 2020, where she serves in the dual role of Office Manager and Veterinary Assistant. Her favorite thing to do clinically is laboratory work.

Outside of the clinic, Delaney shares her life with her husband and their loyal companions: Diamond and Lumi, both of whom are husky mixes. Despite their similar breeds, the two dogs couldn’t be more different. Lumi is certifiably insane, and Diamond prefers to play quietly with her toys – especially her fluffy stuffed animals.

In her spare time, Delaney attends classes as she is currently pursuing her degree as a veterinary technician. When she’s not at school or studying, she enjoys spending time with friends and having doggie play dates.

After spending years working in the customer service field, Meg decided that she wanted to find a job where she felt she made a difference. She had always had a passion for animals, so she decided to pursue a job where she got to spend her time helping furry critters. Today Meg is a veterinary assistant at Happy Tails Veterinary Clinic, and she’s happy for the chance to learn about and work with animals!

Raised in Wisconsin, Meg developed a love for animals, especially dogs (pitbulls are her favorite breed), at a young age. She attended University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, where she studied Wildlife Ecology and Captive Wildlife. While in school, she interned at a zoo, which gave her a chance to become familiar with a variety of different species from all over the world.

Meg loves several aspects about her job. She likes doing research on patients for their appointments to get a better feel of what the problem is. She also enjoys restraining, and finds being able to successfully calm down a nervous animal to be highly rewarding!

Meg currently owns two Staffordshire mixes. In her free time, she runs her own pet sitting business called Megs Mutts LLC. She also enjoys being outdoors, whether she’s taking a nap in her lawn chair or going on a hike!



Veterinary Assistant

When Adam was younger, he spent countless hours at his uncle’s dairy farm. He remembers watching in awe every time the vet would visit to work on the cows. Not only did he get to witness this, but he was also invited to help out from time to time. Adam credits this experience for sparking his desire to one day become a veterinarian. As one of the veterinary assistants here at Happy Tails, he continues to work toward fulfilling this dream.

While this may be Adam’s first professional experience with veterinary medicine, he’s certainly no stranger to handling animals, from dogs, cats, sheep, and cattle, to poultry, guinea pigs and rabbits, just to name a few. He was heavily involved in 4-H and FFA and excelled in both areas, becoming a 10 year 4-H member as well as earning his American FFA degree. Currently, Adam is working on taking the required undergraduate coursework so he can apply to the school of veterinary medicine.

Outside of work, Adam resides with his mother on a small hobby farm in rural Sheboygan County, where they raise and show rabbits and guinea pigs. Their fur family is made complete with three miniature smooth coat dachshunds named Dixie Chick, Player and Violet. Player is a cuddle bug who doesn’t leave Adam’s side when he’s home and will cry if he goes outside without him. Dixie and Violet, on the other hand, are much more independent.

In his spare time, Adam enjoys reading, working on his small online business and growing African violets. An avid traveler, he has visited several states thus far, including Alaska, Maine, Florida and California. He looks forward to traveling off the beaten path to discover even more of what America has to offer.



Veterinary Assistant

Growing up with intense agoraphobia and anxiety, Ava found comfort and safety with her cats. This sparked a desire to work in the animal field. When her beloved dog, Dexter, crossed the Rainbow Bridge, the family brought him to Happy Tails for cremation. The staff was so compassionate and patient, Ava knew she would one day serve and support other pet parents. Her dream came true in August of 2023!

Ava’s journey into the pet care industry began at a local doggy daycare, where she worked for over a year before the opportunity to work at Happy Tails arose. She applied, and the rest is history! As one of our veterinary assistants, Ava enjoys learning new things and meeting all kinds of pets. She also appreciates how every day is different.

At home, Ava has two black domestic shorthaired cats, Lint and JaJa. Lint is a feisty boy who will definitely let you know if he wants something. Originally told Lint was a girl, Ava bought lots of pink accessories, which she kept even after finding out he was a boy – because he just looks so good in pink! JaJa is a sweetheart and loves all people. 

In her spare time, Ava loves to read. Her favorite childhood book is told from the point of view of a stray dog. She once finished a whole novel in one day. One of her other hobbies is video games. She prefers simulation games or choose-your-own-story games.
