Dr. Tim Fouts
A native of Anderson Township, Ohio, I chose to go west after veterinary school to do an internship in small animal medicine and surgery at the West Los Angeles Veterinary Medical Group. It was there I cared for pets owned by such celebrities as Joan Rivers, Sheena Easton, Greg Louganis, Ice-T, Joanna Cassidy, Robert Culp, Eva Gabor, Shelly Hack, Aaron Spelling (and his daughter, Tori) to name a few. From there I went to a busy referral practice in Monrovia, California, located in suburban L.A. County, where I gained extensive experience in soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, working for six years under the late Dr. Raymond Weitkamp, an accomplished veterinary surgeon. After meeting and marrying my wife Lynn, a California native, I was able to convince her that Ohio offered a friendlier, smog-free way of life. We relocated to Clermont County, Ohio and opened Hillside Small Animal Hospital in 1996. We now live in Loveland with our two sons, a cat named “Boo”, our dog “Morgan”, and our newest addition from the Adore-A-Bull Rescue "Patch". Aside from work as a veterinarian and practice-owner, I draw the most satisfaction in life from being a father. I am also an avid golfer as is my wife. Now that our boys are old enough to swing a club, on any given sunny afternoon, you might find the whole Fouts family out on the links!
Dr. Emily Hopping
My name is Dr. Emily Hopping and I am a 2003 graduate of The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine. Upon graduation, I practiced at a small animal clinic in Dayton. My husband and I decided to move to Washington in 2004 to enjoy the great outdoors before having a family. I practiced at a busy, multi-doctor small animal clinic in Anacortes, Washington for 3 years. We moved to the Cincinnati area in the fall of 2007 to be near family after the birth of our first son in January 2007. I joined Hillside Small Animal Hospital in November 2007 as a part-time associate. My specific interests include ophthalmology and dentistry. I have enjoyed the flexibility of working part-time while still being able to be a mom. When I’m not working I can be found enjoying the outdoors at our area parks with my family. I reside in Bethel with my husband, Kelly, two sons, dog “Blue” (pictured here with me) and a cat, “Samish”.
My name is Lynn Fouts and I am the practice manager for Hillside Small Animal Hospital, LLC. I grew up in Arcadia, CA, which is just east of Los Angeles. I graduated with my B.S. in Management in 1995 from California State Polytechnic University in Pomona, CA. I met my husband, Dr. Timothy Fouts, in 1991 working at a very busy small animal practice in Monrovia, CA. We married in 1995 and moved to the Cincinnati area in 1996. We opened Hillside Small Animal Hospital that fall. I am blessed with two boys who keep me very busy and make life so full and fun. Our furry family includes our Shepherd mix, "Morgan", pit bull pup "Patch" (pictured with me), and our cat "Boo". When I’m not working, you may find me out on the golf course. I thoroughly enjoy the peace and serenity I feel on the golf course playing with my friends every week in my league. I am also a certified Jazzercise instructor. I started teaching in January 2007, and love the way Jazzercise makes me feel. It keeps me fit and is a wonderful stress outlet.
My name is LeAnne Young. I have been a registered veterinary technician (RVT) at Hillside Small Animal Hospital since February 2007. Previous to working for Dr. Fouts, I had seven years’ experience at a veterinary hospital in Lebanon.

My husband and I reside in Lynchburg with our many dogs and cats. Pictured with me is “Gage”.
My name is Michelle Baker, and I’m a registered veterinary technician at Hillside. I’ve been here for quite some time! I started out as an assistant in May of 2006 and obtained my Vet Tech license in 2008. I went to UC Raymond Walters, (UC Blue Ash) for my degree. I chose this career because animals have always been a big part of my life. I grew up on a farm with cows, chickens, and pigs. I always had a lot of cats, dogs, and even rabbits. Animals are definitely one of my passions. In my free time I love to sing! Whether it be singing karaoke somewhere, in church, for weddings, I love it! I’ve been married since June 2012 and my husband Brian and I have 1 son named Jett. He’s 6 years old and he’s a total blast and joy in our lives. We have 2 cats and 2 dogs. Greta and Tyson are the kitties, Mona and Cora are the dogs. They are mutts, but hey, that’s the best kind of dog! ;)

Hi, my name is Cara and I’m a veterinary assistant. I’ve lived in Bethel my whole life and still do, I have a border collie mix named Paisley, golden retriever named Timber, and a kitty named Axl and I love them with all my heart. I attended Bethel-Tate High School then my junior year I transferred to Grant Career Center for the Allied Health program. I graduated class of ’18 with my RNA (registered nurse aide) license but then I decided nursing just wasn’t for me. So I took a different approach and I am now attending Penn Foster College and working towards my veterinary technician license. I’m so grateful to have found my home at HSAH and I’m very excited for what the future holds!

Hi, my name is Nicole Steinbrunner. I live in Williamsburg with my husband, Joe, and our furbaby Berni. My love of animals began at a young age when I wanted to care for every stray dog or cat that crossed my path. My family rescued our first pet when I was around 5 yrs old and I've always had at least on pet in my home ever since! I found Hillside Small Animal Hospital in 2015 through a friend of the family, they treated us with such warmth and compassion over the years that in February of 2020 I jumped at the chance to join the team. I am incredibly excited to be part of the HSAH family and look forward to finding out where this new adventure leads! In my spare time I can often be found reading, playing with my dog, cooking, or spending time with my family.

Hi my name is Mia McCammon. I’m currently enrolled at the University of Cincinnati Blue Ash to get my vet tech degree. I should be graduating in the spring of 2021! Pictured with me is my little dog Molly. She has inspired me to fulfill my career by showing so much unconditional love. I never knew I could love an animal so much. She has taught me so much and if it wasn’t for her I would not be working in the veterinary medicine. I enjoy working here at Hillside Small Animal Hospital because I am getting great experience as an assistant. The employees and doctors treat me like family and I have enjoyed my time here so far and look forward to my future here at the clinic.
