Chad Lester, DVMDr. Lester grew up outside of Cleveland, Ohio. From a young age, he always had a passion for animals. Growing up in a family that liked to hunt, he of course would be the one out there trying to save every animal. Each year, his family would vacation to Maui and it was during those visits that he embraced island life. He knew that one day he would live in paradise. He graduated in 2002 and went on to attend The Ohio State University where he received his bachelor’s degree in Animal Science. While in school, he worked for a small animal hospital starting as a kennel assistant and working his way up to becoming a veterinary technician. He didn’t know it at the time, but that was where he met his future wife Tiffany. Being in that family owned, small animal atmosphere, further increased his passion to continue on to veterinary school. Dr. Lester has no fear of trying new things. It is his outgoing attitude and dream of island life that pushed him to chose to start his veterinary career at Saint George’s University on the island of Grenada. He then went on to Oklahoma State University and graduated in 2013 with his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine. Following graduation, Dr. Lester completed a one-year internship at Pittsburgh Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Center, focusing on emergency, internal medicine, and surgery. He and his wife Tiffany moved back to Ohio, where he began working in a large referral center in emergency medicine before transitioning into general practice. In 2017, he and Tiffany decided to fully embrace change and move their family to the beautiful island of Maui and he begun working at Wailuku Pet Clinic. In his spare time, Dr. Lester enjoys spending time with his family at the park or beach, swimming and going on adventures. He and his wife have 3 daughters: Madi, Joey and Elle, along with 4 dogs and 1 cat. You may catch him out on his boat with his buddies, trying to catch REALLY big fish. Dr. Lester is a HUGE sports fan. He started the Browns Backers, Maui and almost never misses an Ohio State football game.
