Meet Our Team


Dr. Tim Fouts

Dr. Tim Fouts - HIllside Small Animal Hospital 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”, and our dog "Patch". Aside from work as a veterinarian and practice-owner, I am an amateur photographer, but I probably draw the most satisfaction in life from being a husband and father. I am also an avid golfer as is my wife. Our two boys are both college engineering students, one in aerospace at Purdue University and one in computer science at University of Cincinnati.

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 “Hanson” (pictured here with me) and a cat, “Samish”.

Lynn Fouts

Lynn-Fouts - Hillside Small Animal Hospital 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 make life so full and fun. Our furry family includes our pit bull "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.

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! ;)

Nicole Steinbrunner

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.

She has taught me so much and if it wasn’t for her I would not be working in the veterinary medicine.

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.

  • "It’s like a visit to see family! The smiling faces when we walk in—they greet the pups by their names. The coffee and water while we wait. It’s amazing how they take every note from previous visits and make us feel like we are part of their family. And just all these little things that mean so much to me as their Mama. I’m so blessed to have a wonderful Vet Family for my pups."
