Sylvia Furstenau, our office manager, started her “career” in 1985 with Dr Ray Anderson, Pierce, working as a veterinary assistant. She has seen lots of changes and improvements, especially in the care of small animals. Her daily duties include invoicing and bookkeeping.
Sylvia was born and raised in the Pierce area, graduating from Pierce High School. Her husband Wayne and she live on an acreage just outside of Pierce. They have three married children: Nathan and Tammy in Stanton, Tiffany and Ryan in Omaha, and Kevin and Cathy in Pierce. They are grandparents to 8 grandchildren. Wayne and Sylvia are members of Zion Lutheran Church in Pierce.
Sylvia is a mentor at the Pierce High School and is active in church organizations. Her favorite things to do are gardening and outdoor activities in the summer months and when the weather is cold she likes to sew and do needlework. Of course, the best activity is to spend time with her grandchildren.
