Dr. Karen Angele

Associate Veterinarian


Dr. Angele joined BRVC in 2013 as our part time/relief services veterinarian. She grew up in Evergreen Park where she knew from the age of 12 that she wanted to become a veterinarian.  

She began working at Lepar Animal Hospital at 16 years old to gain experience before going off to college to earn her Bachelor of Art's Degree from the University of Denver and her D.V.M. degree from the University of Illinois. Dr. Angele graduated in 1990 and started working at Markham Animal Clinic and then went on to Blum Animal Hospital in Chicago.

After moving to the western suburbs with her husband in 1997, Dr. Angele worked part time doing relief services for various veterinary clinics while raising their three children.   She is thrilled to have been a part of the BRVC family on a regular basis for the past 10 years, and looks forward to the coming years. Dr. Angele thrives on keeping pets healthy and happy and developing relationships with her patients and their "parents".  When not at work, Dr. Angele enjoys hiking and traveling.
