Dr. Seth Williams
When not practicing, Dr. Williams is an avid ice hockey player and golfer (though he won’t be seen on the PGA tour quite yet) and is a die-hard Miami Hurricanes fan. His family is his most prized possession – he and his wife, Becca, have two young boys. His family is completed with two four-legged children Cane, the Golden Retriever, and Chase, the Cockapoo.
Dr. Emily Goyda
Dr. Emily Goyda is a St. Louis native who attended the University of Missouri, where she received both her undergraduate degree in animal science and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. She’s thrilled to be a part of the MetroVet team and to help further MetroVet’s mission of providing high-quality, compassionate, and collaborative care to her patients and their owners. Her main interests include preventative medicine and nutrition, dentistry and surgery, internal medicine, and behavior. Above all else, Dr. Goyda is thankful to have the opportunity to help owners and their pets have long, happy, healthy lives together and strives to create a trusting, empathetic relationship with all her clients and patients.
Dr. Goyda grew up in Kirkwood and currently lives in Dogtown with her four dogs (she acknowledges that she’s completely crazy) named Izzy, Chewy, Olivia, and Hank, and her cats, Tory and Biscuit, who are all spoiled rescues (and also her husband, Ryan). Her favorite things outside of veterinary medicine are traveling, hosting friends and family, eating good food (please send her all of your restaurant suggestions, and she’ll gladly share hers), and Trader Joe’s.

Maggie and her husband Charles are extensive travelers and their three dogs love joining them. They also enjoy watching sports and playing golf together. Maggie is looking forward to helping and guiding our clients with the knowledge to keep their pets healthy and happy.
Lead Client Concierge
Most of her free time is spent at a local stable riding and caring for the horses and other fun farm animals. She and her husband, Jason, enjoy cooking and baking together, taking boxing classes, and spending time with family and friends. Mandy is excited to be a part of this new experience and can’t wait for you and your pet to join our clinic family.
Cecily Kruse, RVT
Cecily Kruse, RVT
Destiny was raised in an Air Force family and spent her childhood all across America. The only thing that stayed consistent was the many pets her family had. She started her career in veterinary medicine in Seattle at an AHHA-accredited hospital. There she learned a strong foundation of medicine that built on her deep level of caring and compassion for companion animals.
When she’s not at work, Destiny loves to go camping, make crafts, and go roller-skating. She also takes her cat, Freya, on weekly hikes to explore the parks of St. Louis. Destiny is thrilled to have joined the MetroVet team and looks forward to creating a wonderful vet experience for both clients and patients.
Carlisle (aka Carl)
Carl joined the MetroVet family shortly after our opening in March 2022. He enjoys checking on our hospitalized patients, walking across our computers, and asking for a good pet. When not sampling everyone’s lunches, he spends most of his day napping in one of his favorite spots. MetroVet would not be the same without Carl, who always brings a smile to our staff’s and clients’ faces.
