Who We Are
EDUCATED, ANIMAL-LOVING VETERINARY TEAM IN OZARK, MO
Our Ozark veterinarians comprise an experienced, educated team of animal lovers committed to your pets’ health and wellbeing of your pets. We work with companion animals to provide loving, gentle care and treatment to make sure your pet is as comfortable and relaxed as possible.
We offer a wide range of preventative and treatment veterinary services at our practice using state-of-the-art equipment and technology. Our staff provides the highest quality of care for both pets and their owners across Southwest Missouri, and we always work to exceed your expectations.
Our team won The Killuminati Foundation’s Veterinary Clinic of the Year award in 2014 & 2017, and we were also nominated in 2015 and 2016.
DR. MICHAEL DIVINE
Dr. Divine graduated from the University of Missouri in 1993 with his doctorate in veterinary medicine. He founded Divine Veterinary Clinic just eight weeks later. In 2003 he moved his practice to Ozark, Missouri. When he isn’t working, he enjoys outdoor activities like hunting, fishing, and boating.

DR. SCOTT GARTNER
Dr. Scott Gartner has called Missouri home for over 13 years now. As an Iowa native, he attended college in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, where he achieved a degree in Biochemistry. He then graduated from OSU with a degree in Veterinary Medicine in 1992. He has since then practiced in Hot Springs, Arkansas, while raising his three sons. When he isn’t working, you will find him fishing on the river with his wife, Tasha, and their adorable French bulldog while toting around his Bengal cat!
Trisha has been in practice now for over 5 years. She is the first bright and shining smile you meet when you walk in the clinic and has made an amazing addition to the clinic. When she isn’t at the clinic, she spends time with her three adorable dogs and husband.
Shelbi is a Texas native and is our lead technician, bringing her 8 years of expertise to our team for over 3 years now. She is an amazing asset to the clinic. When she’s not assisting in surgery or performing dental procedures, she is spending time with her husband, her beautiful new baby girl and their two dogs.
Hi! My name is Michaela, and I recently graduated from MSU with a major in Animal Science and a minor in Companion Animal Science. Having a heart for animals all my life, I have been privileged to raise Labrador Retrievers of my own, volunteer at places like Wonders of Wildlife, and work in the veterinary field to serve you today! In my free time, I enjoy fitness, art, and anything outdoors.
Julie is a new addition that brings so much to our practice. She moved from Alabama to Missouri with her husband, two sons, and pets. She has years of experience in customer service in the veterinary field and brings a lovely presence to our office. In her free time, she stays busy with her husband’s ministry at one of our local churches. Or you may find her at a local craft fair!
Autum is our newest addition to our technician team. She brings several years of veterinary experience with her and is excited to add her knowledge to the clinic.
Emily has been with us for 8 years and is an important part of our team here at the clinic. She has an Occupational Therapy Practitioner degree, but decided last year her heart is in the veterinary profession. She was accepted by all four schools she applied to and has chosen to attend our very own University of Missouri for Veterinary Medicine beginning in the Fall!
Crystal began assisting Dr. Divine the first year he relocated to Ozark. Over the last 19 years, she has worked every position in the clinic which has led her to become the Practice Manager. Without her smiling face and endless dedication, the clinic and its employees would be lost. When she isn’t at the clinic juggling her duties and loving on our patients, she is spending time with her husband, two sons, their two rescue dogs and a beautiful calico cat.
Taylor is new to the veterinary field but has quickly become an asset to our clinic. Her positive attitude and no-fear personality make her a perfect fit with our team. When she isn’t taking care of patients and assisting our doctors, she is spending time with her family and two dogs.
Meet Holly! She may be new to the Divine Clinic family, but with all her past experience in various veterinary clinics around the country, she brings great skills to our practice. Holly spends her free time doing the fun things in life, like hanging out with her cats, exploring the outdoors with her two Australian Shepherds, and enjoying time with her close friends and family. A Holly fun fact: She is not only part of the veterinary field but dabbles in wildlife biology as well!
Laure was a long time client prior to becoming a part of our team in 2020. She was brand new to the veterinary field but has become a great veterinary assistant due to her love of learning. She has raised 3 wonderful children and is an artist at heart. She recently had her art work featured in Art Journaling Magazine. She currently has a cat but is looking to add a new dog to the household soon.
Emily is one of the bright, smiling, friendly faces you first meet when you walk through our doors. You will often see her cuddling a new puppy or kitten, as she is always willing to free your arms as you fill out paper work! She is an asset to our daily flow. When she isn’t greeting you at the front desk, she enjoys loving on her 2 dogs and 3 cats.
Mickayla is new to the veterinary field, but has quickly learned the ropes and fits right in with the Divine Crew like she has been here for years. When she is not loving on your pets or working the front desk, you can find her snuggling her two cats and two rescue dogs!
Jianna has been a part of the Divine Crew since she was 15 years old. She is currently a college student majoring in Biology. Her other interests are researching, hiking, and spending time with her family, 2 cats and adorable little dog.
