Meet Our Team

  • Michael D White

    I started the Animal Clinic of Ste. Genevieve LLC in 1992 along with my wife Virginia. Since that time I have had the honor and privilege of being able to help the people of Ste. Genevieve county and surrounding counties to care for their pets. I strive to treat every client and patient with due diligence and respect that I afford my own family and pets. I enjoy all aspects of the general practice of veterinary medicine and surgery, and find it most rewarding. I do my utmost to ensure good communication, compassion and quality care. I am a member of the AVMA, MAVA, AVMF, Partner For Healthy Pets, The Show-Me Response Disaster Relief, Missouri Volunteer Veterinary Corp, and The Knights of Columbus.

     I was raised in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri. I went to the University of Missouri in Columbia, graduating with a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 1991. I received the Adriant J. Durant Memorial Award for outstanding ability & proficiency in the knowledge of poultry diseases. I came back to Ste. Genevieve with my wife Virginia to live and start the Animal Clinic of Ste, Genevieve. Both have been a blessing in my life!  In my free time I enjoy restoring old cars, jeeping, geocaching and all things outdoors. I love coming to work everyday and have a true passion for veterinary medicine.

  • Virginia White

    Retired, but still a partner of the Animal Clinic of Ste. Genevieve, LLC, I started the clinic along with my husband, Dr. Michael White in 1992. I am proud how the Animal Clinic of Ste. Genevieve strives on the cutting edge of technology and advancements in veterinary medicine, and I love being able to provide clients with quality medical care at an affordable price, but most of all I treasure the relationships I have developed over the years with our clients and patients. Nothing compares to the satisfaction I’ve experienced here after years of dedication and wonderful memories.

     I was born and raised in this area. I have a son, daughter, seven grandchildren, three horses, two dogs, and four cats. I enjoy spending time with my family, Jeeping, Geocaching, hiking and swimming.

  • Beth Bess

    I have been a receptionist at the Animal Clinic of Ste. Genevieve since December of 2005. Each and everyday is a new experience. I have always loved animals and it is a dream come true to work with them on a daily basis. I enjoy everyone that walks through the door and make it my goal to make them happy and help them with anything they need. We have a great team here at the Animal Clinic of Ste. Genevieve. We all work together to make sure everyone is treated with the utmost respect and make sure they leave with all their questions and concerns addressed.

     I was born and raised in Ste. Genevieve where I still live with my husband John, daughter Ashley, son Evan, four Great Danes, and two cats. In my spare time I enjoy camping and spending time with my family.

    I work as the veterinary assistant at the Animal Clinic of Ste. Geneveive. I started at the clinic in July 2017. I have completed two years at Jefferson College in which I earned my Associate degree. I have always enjoyed spending time with animals as well as working with the public; I never would have believed that I would have such luck as to being able to do both!

    I have been born and raised right here in Ste. Genevieve county, in which I have gone to school, and later married my husband. We live in Ste.

    I was born & raised in Ste. Genevieve on a farm where my love for animals began! I have been with my spouse Tanner for five years now. In our free time, we enjoy going on adventures with our three pitbulls. Whether, it's hiking, camping, fishing or going to the river, you can always find us out in nature.
