Meet our Team of Veterinarians
Kurt Strueh DVM
Kurt Strueh grew up on a small farm just south of Lafayette, IN. My love for animals started when I was fairly young. My grandfather gave me a baby pig to raise when I was only four years old. I learned a lot from Annie the pig. However, when I started raising and showing sheep for a 4-H project then I realized that I enjoyed the medicine aspect of animals. For 10 years, I showed sheep in 4-H then I decided to go to school to be a veterinarian. I graduated from Purdue School of Veterinary Medicine in 1998. I learned additional medicine and surgery techniques working at several veterinary hospitals over the next four years. In 2002, I started Frankfort Animal Hospital. My goal is to provide patients with the best veterinary care possible and have the clients have a good experience when going to a veterinary hospital.
Julie Mummert DVM
My name is Julie Mummert. Originally from Toledo, I grew up mostly in Columbus, Indiana. From the age of twelve, I have wanted to become a veterinarian (after ruling out jockey and rock-star!). I attended IU for my undergraduate degree in Biology and graduated in 2003 from Purdue School of Veterinary Medicine.
My husband, Brian, and I married in 2003 and have been blessed with three children: James, Ben, and Isabelle. Our family’s interests range from reading, history, and cooking to soccer, ballet, martial arts, and motocross.
Our four-legged family includes: a Golden Retriever, Franklin, two cats, Mario and Maui, two turkeys, Gonzo and Camilla, and a flock of chickens.
Erica Hughes DVM
Hi, my name is Erica Hughes. I grew up just down the road in Kirklin and graduated from Purdue as a veterinarian in 2011, after getting my undergraduate degree in biology from the University of Evansville. I have felt a connection with animals ever since I got my first dog as a little girl, and I feel very blessed to have the opportunity to help people by helping their pets. I look forward to working with you to keep your pets healthy and active, building a great relationship along the way.
I have been married to my husband, Tom, since 2008 and God has blessed us with two children, Addie and Kellen. We also have a yellow lab named Stanley and a cat named Penelope to round out the family. I feel very blessed to work in a place with such wonderful people who are fun, committed to excellence, and have a genuine love for animals. We hope you will love it here too!
Kristine Towns DVM
I grew up in Newburgh, Indiana and was a 10yr 4-H member. I have had a long-standing interest in veterinary medicine, and I was lucky to have two great veterinary mentors growing up. I attended Hanover College and then went on to complete my DVM degree from Purdue in 2005. I have practiced in shelter and emergency medicine, but I also really enjoy working in the area of preventive healthcare.
I have four kids and two dogs at home (Laverne and Shirley). My dogs are my running partners. Our family also loves to camp; we are outside any chance we get. I am excited to be working with the team at Frankfort Animal Hospital, and I hope that I can continue to strengthen the bond between pets and owners.

Hello, my name is Steph. I joined the Technician team at Frankfort Animal Hospital in September of 2014. I am proud to work along side of an unstoppable crew of brilliant and compassionate doctors and staff. Since I was a little girl, working and playing with animals (of any kind) was what made my soul happy. At 6 years old, I began riding and showing hunter/jumper horses, and never looked back. I grew up in Zionsville Indiana, and attended school there from preschool through graduation. In 1999 I earned a master trainer certification from National K-9 School for Dog Trainers in Columbus Ohio. I have worked as a veterinary technician since 2003. I am loving life with my amazing husband Bill on our hobby farm. We share our country utopia with 2 dogs, Olive and Ben, 3 cats, Smitty, Biscuit,and Ta’li, our flock of chickens (I’ll spare you on all of their names), and 2 horses, Ginger (pictured) and RoOoby.
Hi, My name is Liv Quinton. I grew up in Rossville, IN. I’ve always loved animals since I was young but was specifically passionate about horses. I began riding at a young age, my passion grew and led me to Black Hawk East in Galva, IL for their Equine Science and Horse Science Technology programs. I graduated from BHE in 2016 with two associates degrees. To finish my degrees, I took an internship in Montana to work at a veterinary clinic and train for two horse trainers. I quickly fell in love with veterinary medicine and knew I had to go back to school to pursue my Veterinary Assisting Certificate. After completing an internship at Frankfort Animal Hospital, I received my certificate from BHE in July of 2017 and got the opportunity to stay on at FAH! I recently adopted a puppy named Sophie and in the near future plan to take on some new horses as training projects.
My name is Makaila Maloney, I grew up in Sheridan, Indiana on a small farm where we raised and showed competitive Miniature Pygmy goats for 15 years. That’s how my love for animals started! I was a 10 year 4-H member and loved every bit of it, where I showed Pygmy Goats and Beef Cattle and everything in between! I have a huge passion in cattle as I’ve had my own herd going since 2008. I Graduated from Westfield High School where I was fortunate enough to take a 2 year course at J. Everett Light Career Center where I obtained my Associates in Veterinary Assisting. Following High School I went off to Lake Land College in Illinois where I obtained my Associates degree in Agriculture Production and Management. I’ve always been Ag and Animal driven, and I am so pleased to be a part of The Frankfort Animal Hospital Team, where I can do what makes me happy everyday!
