Our Veterinarians

Meet the folks who make it all happen. We see big potential in every moment, and care deeply about what we do every day.

Dr. Dale Aho

Associate Veterinarian

Dr. Aho received his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Michigan State University in 1973. He sees both small and large animal patients, and does most of the clinic’s advanced orthopedic procedures. His hobbies include fly fishing, traveling to Alaska and Montana, and reading Tom Clancy novels.

Dr. Jennifer Aschenbrener

Associate Veterinarian

Before she even knew precisely what veterinary medicine was, Dr. Jennifer Aschenbrener enjoyed many aspects of the profession. She had always been fascinated by science, and she loved using her critical-thinking skills to solve puzzles. Plus, she’s had a lifelong love for animals that hasn’t wavered to this day! For Dr. Aschenbrener, a career in the veterinary world just made perfect sense.

Dr. Aschenbrener was born in Erie, Pennsylvania but moved to Carleton, Michigan with her family at the age of 12. She earned her Bachelor’s degree in biology from Siena Heights University in Adrian, then attended Michigan State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine to secure her Doctorate. Dr. Aschenbrener took a job in Lincoln, Michigan after graduation, where she got to work with everything from dogs, cats, and horses to cattle, sheep, goats, and pigs. Two years later, she relocated and joined the team at a practice in Albion, which she would eventually purchase in July of 2004.

Dr. Aschenbrener continued to own and operate her practice in Albion for the next 14 years, serving as an adjunct professor at Albion College’s Institute of Healthcare Professionals and also serving as an expert witness in court to help the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Department investigate animal neglect and cruelty cases. She and her husband purchased property in the Upper Peninsula in 2013 with plans to eventually move to the area, and Dr. Aschenbrener sold her practice to her friend and Associate Veterinarian before relocating to this area in June of 2019. She joined the Animal Medical Center of Marquette family that July and has been caring for the pets and animal parents of the area ever since!

Away from work, Dr. Aschenbrener enjoys reading good books; skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing in the winter; riding her Harley Davidson motorcycle; drawing and painting; running (she’s even done a few half-marathons!); and spending quality time with her family and pets. She and her husband, Tom, have a son named Rudy and also share their lives with four cats. The animal portion of the family includes two dogs named Caruso and Dave, as well as a mischievous cat named TinTin and a grey tabby who goes by Johnny Cash.
