Amy Schlimpert, CVT
Executive Director of Shenanigans & Marketing
Amy is a Certified Veterinary Technician residing in Southern Illinois. She graduated from the
Vet Tech Institute at Hickey College in Missouri in 2011 with an associate’s degree in Veterinary
Technology and received her license later that year.
Amy spent a decade at a small animal
practice in Saint Louis, Missouri before moving back home to Illinois. She still works part time in
a mixed animal practice and enjoys still getting to utilize her mad tech skills.
Amy met Dr. DeWilde when they worked together for several years in Saint Louis. They quickly
found out they had a lot in common: Illinois natives with a love for Will Ferrell movies, cats,
veterinary medicine, and social media (mainly for the cat memes!). Amy took over the social
media management for the clinic they worked at after Dr. DeWilde taught her everything she
knew. Over the years, they kept in close contact and collaborated on a few projects together.
When a position opened up to join The Social DVM team, Amy happily accepted the opportunity
to work together again.
Amy’s professional interests include animal behavior, neurology, internal medicine, and of
course, veterinary marketing.
Amy lives on a farm in Southern Illinois with her significant other, 3 kids (all boys), cows, a wild
mini Aussie, Wrangler, a snoring Pit Bull, Nala, one very spoiled indoor cat, Jenny, and two
garage cats, Pinky and the Brain.
In her spare time, Amy enjoys spending time with her family and friends, being outdoors, Blues
hockey, and watching organization TikToks.
