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.
