Meet the Staff

The staff at the Veterinary Alternative is very friendly and welcoming!

Delphine Leaderstorf: Office Manager

Sherrie, LVT: Assistant Office Manager & Vet Technician.  Sherrie lives with her husband Mark and the “girls”: Maggie (Lab), Anya (GSD) and two spoiled cats, Phoenix and Annika. She met Dr. Koenig when she brought her lab Maggie in for acupuncture five years ago.  During that time, she decided to follow her dream and graduated in 2012 from Medaille College with a associates degree in science and became a licensed veterinary technician.  In her free time she loves to read, travel, walk the dogs and play endless ball with Anya!

Kelly: Vet Assistant.  Kelly has a BA in Psychology, with a concentration in Business Studies and has completed coursework in Comparative Animal Behavior from Canisius College.  Kelly has had a successful career in the service, manufacturing, and retail industries.  After 12 years of owning The Animal Kingdom, in Orchard Park, she sold the business in 2012 and joined Dr. Koenig’s team in early 2013 and is thrilled to be assisting her favorite holistic vet who has been treating her pets for over 15 years!  When she’s not working, she can be found volunteering at a local kitty animal shelter or working on feral cat TNVR projects.  Currently, Kelly lives in Hamburg with her husband, their beloved Coonhound, Gus, and five cats (Toby, Fuzz, Smudge, Maggie & Sophie).

Kathy:  Vet Assistant, is the newest member of our team having joined the practice in January 2015. Her experience with a variety of critters spans 15 years with having owned a pet sitting business where friends and family have put their precious pets in her care because they trusted her abilities and knew she would treat their pets as her own.   Currently pet mom to two adopted felines, Barney and Butterscotch, there hasn't been a time in Kathy's life when pets weren't a part of it.
