Doctors

Dr. Bethe Deppe

DVM

Dr. Beth Deppe has been a dedicated full-time veterinarian at Morganside Veterinary Clinic for over 18 years. She is one of the rare vets who found the perfect fit of a practice right out of veterinary school (UW Madison, 2002) and has never left!

Dr. Beth has prospered richly from the ever-challenging casework, the beloved pets and clients, and the success of Morganside. Though she loves studying and learning, she has found that one day of medicine cases in a clinic is vastly more gratifying and educational than a full week of lectures.

Dr. Beth enjoys hiking and playing outdoors with her pack of 3 small dogs and 3 cats, cultivating numerous plants, playing scrabble, sudoku, and reading French novels. She hopes to travel to France, as she has been passionate about the language since childhood.

Some other aspirations that Dr. Beth envisions are:

  • Learning and mastering ultrasound to augment her diagnostic repertoire. Diagnosing is what makes her tick!
  • Editing/writing for a scientific journal. She comes from an arts & letters family.
  • Retiring (or not!) to a WARM climate where she can go barefoot, wear shorts and swim, for more than 3 months of the year!

Dr. Jeff Korte

DVM

Dr. Jeff Korte grew up in Brookfield, Wisconsin where at a very young age he knew he wanted to become a veterinarian. He completed his undergraduate and veterinary training at the University of Wisconsin Madison, where he was on the Deans High Honor Roll for eight consecutive semesters. He graduated in the charter class of the new veterinary school in 1987.

After graduating from veterinary school, Dr. Jeff practiced large animal medicine in Reedsburg, Wisconsin for one year before moving to Pulaski, Wisconsin to practice for another two year. He moved to Sparta in 1990, where he became a partner in the Ridgeview Veterinary Clinic. In 1994, he and his partner built the veterinary hospital that is now the Morganside clinic.

Dr. Jeff has three amazing children and two beautiful grandchildren who are all his pride and joy! His wife, Daniela, is a native German and the love of his life. They travel extensively and share what life has to offer. Dr. Jeff is drawn to the outdoors and feels most alive when in nature. His hobbies include scuba diving, canoeing, camping, photography, and meditation. He has 27 skydives under his belt as well.

Dr. Jeff truly enjoys his work at Morganside. He very much appreciates the collaborative team environment where the entire staff strives to provide the highest quality of care possible. There is not a day that goes by where he does not learn something new. Jeff enjoys his interactions not only with his patients, but with their owners as well. Because he has lived in the community for over 30 years, he knows many of the clients and also meets new ones every day. He loves getting to know people and hearing their stories. He feels very grateful to be working at the Morganside Veterinary Clinic, where the familial and pleasant atmosphere make it a great place to work!

Dr. Marla Lind

DVM

Dr. Marla Lind, DVM joined Morganside Veterinary Clinic in 2017. When she was 8 she decided she wanted to be a veterinarian. She graduated from Iowa State University and is currently a member of both the Wisconsin Veterinary Medical Association and the American Veterinary Medical Association. Dr. Marla’s attention to detail is a great asset to her work. Since her patients can’t talk, the details she gathers from conversations with clients, a pet’s history, the physical examination, and diagnostic tests are all important in determining the best care for each patient.

The most inspiring part of Dr. Marla’s job is observing the amazing bond that develops between pets and their people.

Dr. Marla has 2 cats and 1 dog. She loves going for long walks with her dog. She would also like to visit all of the national parks and would like to learn Spanish.

Dr. Nathan Monson

DVM

Dr. Nathan Monson D.V.M., visited his uncle (who is a veterinarian) when he was three years old. After he came home, he began telling everyone he was going to be a veterinarian when he grew up. Although Dr. Monson is not sure if he has fully grown up, three-year-old Nathan would be proud and not surprised to find out that he graduated from Iowa State University in 2008 and has been a veterinarian ever since. He began working at Morganside in the spring of 2020, so there is at least one good thing that happened in 2020!

Practice Manager

Patti

Practice Manager

Patti has been with Morganside since 2005. She started as a part time receptionist in 2005 and is now the practice manager. Patti has loved seeing how the practice has grown through the years. She loves supporting the doctors and techs when needed, and especially helping the clients and pets too.

Patti was born and raised in Sparta. She left for 3 years in the 80s and has since come back home. She lives with her husband and 2 orange cats, PolyEsther and Cotton. Patti has 4 children and 4 amazing grandkids. She loves researching history and visiting old cemeteries around the US, fiber arts, watching her grandkids sports, and listening to 70s music.

Patti’s favorite quote: “Whatever you must do today, do it with the confidence of a 4 year old in a Batman cape.” ~ Author Unknown

Certified Veterinary Technicians

Diana

Certified Veterinary Technician

Diana joined Morganside Veterinary Clinic as an Extern for her technician program in 2013, she later became a full time Veterinary Technician, and is now a Certified Veterinary Technician. She graduated from Globe University with an Associate’s degree in Science in December 2013. Diana is inspired by those around her everyday and especially loves to work on medicine cases, this is where she flourishes. She thrives and is encouraged by watching a patient recover, knowing she had a hand in helping. Diana brings an upbeat personality to the team with a true love for the field.

Diana is a California native and misses the warmth and sunshine during the cold winters. She has lived in Wisconsin, with her husband and 2 kiddos, for 17 years… just about as long as she lived in California. The team would describe her as the clinic clown, always trying to get people to laugh. She has been heard saying “You can’t take care of others, until you take care of yourself!”

Browyn

Certified Veterinary Technician

Browyn joined the Morganside team in the summer of 2019 as one of the first students in Madison College’s new Veterinary Technician Hybrid program. She has had the wonderous opportunity to learn in school and work alongside technicians with years of experience, building confidence and practical skills, while creating a lasting relationship with a clinic team that promotes teamwork and shared learning. Browyn graduated with her vet tech degree in December of 2020 and is excited to continue learning and growing with the Morganside family.

Browyn has a Redfoot Tortoise and 3 cats, each with their own quirky personalities. She loves animals in general and has a special spot in her heart for the herding dog breeds. Browyn plans to pursue additional education in animal behavior and training. “It’s just so interesting” she says, “how much a bit of training and a deeper knowledge about the habits and drives of certain breeds can really benefit both the pet and the owner. They learn to understand each other better, and that’s a really cool thing to see.”

“Dogs are like that, I guess. They know how to fix you, without ever saying a word.”
