Meet Our Support Staff Team
We wouldn’t be able to do what we do without our incredible support staff. This team is the life of Riversbend, and their dedication and compassion to every pet that comes through our doors is remarkable. Jimmy Scott, another member of the Scott family, leads our support staff in offering friendly, skilled service to the clients and pets of Big Rapids.

Joseph graduated from Ferris State University with a bachelor’s degree in biology and is continuing his studies at Michigan State University (MSU) in the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program expecting to graduate in 2022. As a young man Joseph started working at Riversbend Animal Hospital. He has been fortunate to learn all facets of our family owned and operated business. The profession of caring for animals has always been a large part of his life. We are very pleased to have him as a veterinary intern at our hospital during his studies in veterinary medicine at MSU.
Joseph’s family has been the largest factor in his pursuit of veterinary medicine. In his spare time he enjoys birdwatching, brewing beer, watching and playing soccer, and the outdoors. He loves his pug, his family, and his lovely fiancee.
