Meet Our Team

Dr. Rochelle Clark

I am a 2014 graduate from Kansas State University and have been working at Farview Veterinary Hospital since June of 2014. I have been very lucky to be welcomed into this family and enjoy working with them every day. An added benefit of this practice is the quality of clients we have, they are exceptional and trust us with the care of their four-legged family members. My special interests are in soft tissue surgery, dentistry, and radiology.

I married my best friend, Dustin, in 2015 and we have loved starting our family here in Independence. We got our first pet, Archie in early 2016 and he is Shih Tzu/Yorkie mix. Archie definitely knows he rules our household but he loves meeting new people and pets. His best friend is one of the clinic cats named Dave. They love playing when Archie gets to come to work with me. My pets are family and I take care of my patients as I would my own.

Dr. Christopher Olson

I am a 2016 graduate from the University of Missouri-Columbia and have been working at Farview Veterinary Hospital since June of 2016. I grew up in Independence, just down the road from Farview, and my family and I have always brought our pets here. We have always loved the attentive and caring attitudes of the doctors and staff and I am overjoyed to have been welcomed as a doctor here upon my graduation from veterinary school. I have felt at home here since my first day and I love the adorable patients and caring clients that I'm privileged to see every day. My special interests are in special imaging (such as radiology) and alternative medicine (such as laser therapy).

I married my loving wife, Kayla, in 2016 as well and have been lucky enough to bring her back to my home town to start our family. We acquired our first pet, a medium haired cat named Mr. Tibbers, as a kitten in 2012. We got our next pet, a Labrador-Blue Heeler mix named Anistasia, as a puppy in 2014 and her and Mr. Tibbers were constant companions and delights in Kayla and my's life as we went through school together. Our most recent family member, a Mini Australian Shepherd, was added to the family as a puppy in 2016 and our small family is only looking to grow in size as we settle back in to the community. As we set deep roots in Independence, I look forward to being able to help many families and their four legged family members in the years to come.
