Dr. Alex Bachman

Dr. Alex Bachman

Veterinarian

My name is Alex James Bachman, I am the son of Ron and Sharon Bachman. I spent most of my life in southern California raising livestock for show. I mostly cared for crossbred beef cattle, swine, and sheep through which I learned much about responsibility and also general animal health. I was an active 4-H member in my community and an officer in FFA at Apple Valley High School. After my sophomore year, my family moved to Kansas where I graduated from high school in Wellsville. I began my collegiate career at Kansas State University in 2008 with aspirations to go to the College of Veterinary Medicine. My dreams to become a veterinarian have always been inspired by my lifelong role model and Dad, Ron Bachman. His passion for veterinary medicine and care for animals showed me very early in my life that I wanted to align my career path with his own and hopefully work with him someday. On May 15, 2015, I graduated from Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine and received a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. Since graduation, I have been practicing Veterinary Medicine at FMA Animal Hospital, where I will benefit from working alongside the best Veterinarians and support staff. My wife Amiee and I enjoy raising our son, Declan, along with our dogs, Addi, Finn, Livie, and our cats Poppi and Branch.

Dr. Jamie Wilson

Dr. Jamie Wilson

Veterinarian

Hello, my name is Dr. Jamie Wilson. I earned my veterinary degree at the University of Georgia in 1993. I then went on to do an internship in small animal medicine and surgery at the University of Minnesota. After completing my internship I practiced in Auburn, Alabama for 2 years and moved to KC in 1997. I have been practicing small animal medicine and surgery since that time. In the last 8 years prior to joining FMA, my practice consisted of filling in for various veterinary hospitals when veterinarians needed to be out of the office. That is how I came to know the wonderful doctors and staff at FMA. I became a regular member of the team in April 2017. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing and loving many animals in my life including rabbits, cats, hamsters, turtles, mice and dogs. I used to enjoy riding horses, mostly in the hunter jumper arena. I have one son who is 18 and the joy of my life. When I’m not at work I enjoy live music, traveling, discovering new restaurants in KC and meeting the demands of my cat, Clyde!

Emma

Emma's Bio
Hello I’m Emma! This is my second year as a Kennel Technician here at FMA. I’ve been a lifelong animal lover, so I feel like I’m in the perfect place for growing experience towards my passion: helping animals! I have lived in the Kansas City area most of my life and I have 2 perfect fur babies of my own. Outside of work, my dog, Cosmo and my (foster fail) kitten, Cujo, keep me very busy cleaning up their suspicious messes, but when we have time Cosmo and I like spending time in nature and meeting new dogs and people at the local parks. Caring for animals is something I’ve always felt driven to do and I am very happy to be part of the FMA family!

Hanna

Hanna's Bio

Hello, my name is Hanna. I am a Veterinary Technician here at FMA Animal Hospital. When I was younger I always dreamed of working with animals. I am living my dream right now at FMA. Working with such caring people who have the same love for animals is a blessing. Seeing patients recover from illnesses is always amazing, but seeing how happy the owners are to have their companion back is the best feeling. I have 2 dogs named Chico and Nova. I also have a cat named Skyy Baby. I couldn’t imagine my life without them.

Kailey

Kailey's Bio

Hi! My name is Kailey and I am a Veterinary Technician here at FMA. I started my career here in 2016 and also started school the same year to work towards becoming an RVT. I’ve learned so much from school and all of our great doctors here and it helps me to help clients and their pets live healthy and happy lives. I grew up in Lawrence KS and of course, had animals throughout the years. Dogs, cats, rabbits, poultry, and horses were my favorites to raise and care for. Currently, I have two beagles, Mikey and Tootie, and then three cats, Ally, Jax, and Avery. I love spending my free time being active and playing sand volleyball or you can find me reading with my lap full of animals.

Kyarra

Kyarra's Bio

Hi, my name is Kyarra, I’m from a small town on the panhandle of Nebraska. I’ve always had a passion for animals, ever since I was old enough to remember we always had a furry companion running around our house spreading joy into our lives. I graduated from Alliance High School in 2018 and moved to Kansas City the day after graduation to explore what the rest of the world had to offer. I’ve only been working at FMA for a short while, but I’ve already started making connections with the patients, clients, and my fellow staff members. When you’re here the Bachmans make you feel right at home and want the best for everyone and their beloved pets. In my free time, I love to take my personal dog Gertie to play at the dog park, stay in on a snowy day and watch movies or listen to music. I love working at FMA because I get to see all the different types of breeds of cats and dogs and do a little good in the world by taking care of all the animals.

Rachel

Rachel's Bio

My name is Rachel. I have been working in the veterinary field since 2005. I have always had a passion to work with animals and have decided to turn that into a career. My favorite thing about working at FMA is the cherished relationships I develop with our patients and clients on a daily basis. I get a lot of satisfaction out of helping make a beloved pet feel better and then returning them to their family. To me, there is no greater fulfillment. In my spare time, I enjoy watching movies, listening to music, and spending time with my own furry family and toddler. I have a French Bulldog named Lanette, and 2 cats.
