Our Amazing Team!
Dr. Sandra Soucheray, CHPV
Dr. Soucheray is the owner of Dr. Soucheray’s at Home Veterinary Care. Dr. Soucheray has always had a love of animals and the desire to help them with their owners. She gets her love of warm weather from being born in Charleston, SC where her dad was a medical officer on a nuclear submarine. Sandra grew up here in the northern suburbs. She had a degree in Art History from St. Thomas University and considers herself a renaissance lady. Veterinary medicine is really where her heart is and she graduated from the University of Minnesota's College of Veterinary Medicine in 2002.
After graduation she worked in general family practice full time. She has also worked in some of the premiere hospitals in the twin cities providing relief work for veterinarians while they were on maternity or sick leave. She was also the onsite veterinarian, teaching anesthesia and surgery to veterinary technical students. She was recently at a very busy, fast paced veterinary hospital, and after seeing dozens of patients a day, she started to get the yearning to spend more time with each patient in their own environment while still offering the highest quality care in her own community. It seems she may have been destined for this role since in veterinary school she received the Rupert Memorial Scholarship. this award is chosen by the veterinary school clinicians and her peers to be awarded to the student who shows a "special sensitivity to the care of older dogs" - this is a perfect fit since a mobile practice lends itself well to geriatric care. Dr. Soucheray worked for a mobile veterinarian prior to starting veterinary school and witnessed what a wonderful service at home care is for pets and their caregivers. Dr. Soucheray is also Fear Free Certified.
In 2017, Dr. Soucheray became one of the very first veterinarians to become certified in Animal Hospice and Palliative Care through the International Association of Animal Hospice and Palliative Care (IAAHPC). Dr. Soucheray has a true passion for providing hospice, palliative, and end of life care for pets in the comfort of their own homes.
Dr. Soucheray and her family have two wonderful yellow Labradors named Borgie and Tina. Borgie is a younger pup who loves swimming and playing with her dog and human friends. Tina is in her senior years old and enjoys wading in the lake, napping, and watching for visitors. When Dr. Soucheray is not driving around taking care of the great animals in the neighborhood, she loves to spend time on the lake occasionally water skiing. When time allows, she also enjoys spending time in the kitchen cooking up a great gourmet meal.
Dr. Elizabeth Binger
Dr. Binger’s path to the world of veterinary medicine was a bit unconventional. Her fascination with the study of mind and behavior initially led her to earn a B.A. in psychology. However, Dr. Binger’s lifetime love of animals, starting with her childhood guinea pig Norma Jean, ultimately led her to follow her true passion of becoming a veterinarian. Dr. Binger is dedicated to working with families and their pets throughout the many challenges that arise throughout their lives-ranging from creating appropriate preventative care plans, managing acute and chronic illnesses to addressing proper pain management for the aging pet. She believes that the most important role of a veterinarian is to ensure that an animal’s medical care is guided by the goal of achieving the best possible quality of life for the animal and its human. When Dr. Binger isn’t treating her patients, she enjoys spending time with her furry knuckleheads, her human family, going fishing, reading, exploring neature, and being a kid at heart. Her animal household includes her two cats (Greg and Penny) and her two dogs (George Michael and Bowski). While Penny prefers Dr. Binger’s significant other, Greg loves snuggling under the covers and accompanying her while she reads mysteries. The dogs love patrolling the neighborhood, going camping, hiking, and keeping life ever interesting. Life would definitely not be the same without the full house.
Theresa M., CVT, CHPT
Theresa is the full time Certified Veterinary Technician and Practice Manager at Dr. Soucheray’s at Home Veterinary Care. She has a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities. In 2017 Theresa graduated from Penn Foster and passed her Veterinary Technician National Exam. She has been in the veterinary field for 13 years. During that time, she met Dr. Soucheray while working at a pet hospital. Theresa has been helping Dr. Soucheray do home veterinary care since 2016. Theresa has a special place in her heart for pets with special medical needs. In 2019, Theresa obtained her certification in Animal Hospice and Palliative Care through the IAAHPC. She completed the same program that Dr. Soucheray completed in 2017. As of 2020, Theresa is one of only fourteen veterinary technicians certified in Animal Hospice and Palliative Care globally. Theresa is also Fear Free Certified.
Unknowingly, Theresa was first introduced to the world of animal hospice and palliative care through caring for her pug, Reggie. He is the squishy faced guy you might see admist our website and brochures. Reggie has since passed away, but he is the reason Theresa is able to so deeply connect with families and their pets during the what is usually considered the toughest part of pet ownership. Currently Theresa has a 7 year old Labrador Retriever, Jasper, a 10 year old Domestic Shorthair cat, Sage, and a 3 year old Pug Spritz! In her free time, she enjoys training and adventuring with her dogs. When not working or taking care of her own pets, Theresa and her spouse enjoy traveling, gardening, and cooking at home.
