Dr. Romanosky received her undergraduate degree from the University of Washington. While still a die-hard Husky fan, she went to Washington State University for her Doctrine of Veterinary Medicine.

Once graduated, Dr. Romanosky moved to Idaho and joined the IPH team.

After graduation, Dr. Kimbel moved to Boise for an internship in medicine and surgery at West Vet. She did predominantly ER medicine which taught her to think quickly on her feet. However, Dr. Kimbel knew that her passion was with a general practice hospital where she could follow her patients through life and celebrate each small victory like they are all a part of her family. Dr. Kimbel then transferred to the family at Intermountain Pet Hospital.

Dr. Kimbel is owned by a cat named "Kitty" and a yellow lab named Danny. Kitty acts like she hates her younger brother but secretly she believes she is teaching him invaluable life lessons, like communication through body language. In her spare time, she likes to try new things and has discovered she enjoys studying the art of growing an underwater garden and aquascaping.

Dr. Loren Normandeau grew up on a 40-acre horse ranch in Southern Arizona. While living in Arizona, Dr. Normandeau enjoyed competing in horses semi-professionally in 3-day eventing and dressage. It was experiences gained while competing horses that first ignited an interest in veterinary medicine.

After completing an undergraduate degree in Veterinary Science from the University of Arizona, Dr. Normandeau moved to Pullman, Washington, to attend Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine. While living in the Palouse, he fell in love with Idaho's forests, mountains, rivers, and streams. He graduated from WSU in 2017, and there was little doubt that Idaho was where he wanted to call home. He has lived in the Gem state ever since.

Dr. Normandeau is passionate about all things surgical but specializes in orthopedics and minimally invasive surgical techniques.

When away from the clinic, Dr. Normandeau enjoys exploring the great outdoors, hiking, fly fishing, camping, or just tinkering around his workshop.
