Dr. Ron W. Bachman
Dr. Alex Bachman
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.

Hello, my name is Kat and I am the Practice Manager here at FMA Animal Hospital. I started at FMA Animal Hospital back in 2012 as a Kennel Technician. I have a degree in Biology from the University of Missouri-Columbia and have always had a passion for working with animals. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking and camping with my wife Lucy, our son Remington, and our 4 dogs, Moose, Blake, Sullivan Wullivan Bear, and Chew Bear. We have 1 handsome fat cat, his name is Ewan Meowgregor. I also work with Midwest Akita Rescue and have a special place in my heart for Akitas(We often have an extra bear or two in our house).
Hey, I’m Audrey! I started here at FMA as a kennel technician in December of 2017, and am now a receptionist. Growing up there were always pets in the household, particularly cats. Working at FMA is wonderful because of the people I work with, and I love being able to be a part of the process of helping animals. I currently have two cats named Malvo, and Oliver. And two dogs named Sugar Baby and Aries. I wouldn’t be able to live without them!
Bio coming soon!
Hi there! My name is Emily and I am the Front Desk Coordinator here at FMA. I have worked here for a little over 5 years now. While working at FMA, I was able to graduate from KU with a Bachelor’s in Psychology and a minor in Sociology. I started working with animals at Great Plains SPCA and worked there for 3 years in adoptions and doing kennel care. Having a little over 8 years of animal care experience, you can imagine that I have acquired quite a few pets. I have 7 pets right now, 4 dogs, and 3 cats. Chihuahuas have a special place in my heart. The older and crustier, the cuter in my opinion. A dream of mine is to own a farm and have my own chihuahua rescue. Currently, my family is growing and I am expecting my first baby in December. We are very excited and the one thing we do know for certain is that they will be a natural animal lover.
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.
Hello! My name is Jess and I have been a receptionist at FMA for the last three years and have never enjoyed a job more than this one. I love my team and the work that we do every day. I moved to Kansas City about seven years ago from Maine- and this is where I met my husband and where we had our first son, Preston. We bought our first home in Waldo and love enjoying local restaurants, drinks, and music. We are so grateful for how much FMA has done for us as a family and I’m looking forward to all of our continued success together in the future!
Hey, I’m Jessica! My dog Gigi and I have been receptionists here at FMA since 2015. The people I work with and the pets I get to see every day make my job so worthwhile! When I’m not at work, I enjoy hanging out with my pack at home in Waldo. I also love spending time with family and friends, making art and music, and experiencing all that the Kansas City area has to offer.
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.
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.

Hello, my name is Buddy. I’ve been a patient at FMA since 2007. I work at FMA during the week making sure everyone is comfortable. You’ll often find me trying out the new bedding behind the front desk or demanding a treat from the delivery man. I also make sure everyone’s lunch is safe before they eat it and I never miss a staff meeting. In my spare time, I like to nap and stay close to my people. I am the goodest boy!
