Dr. Russell Johnsen

I grew up in a rural setting outside of Beatrice, Nebraska. A tennis scholarship led me to Hastings College, where I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1996. In 2006, my 1996 tennis team had the honor of being inducted into the Hastings College Athletic Hall of Fame. I received my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Kansas State University in 2000, and soon afterward began my veterinary career here in Arizona. My experience and interests include general medicine and surgery. I enjoy fishing, working out, woodworking, and most of all spending time with my lovely wife Lisa, daughter Arwen, and son Tarek. And of course, I always enjoy watching Cornhusker football!

Dr. Jordan Gesimondo

I was born in Madrid, Spain, and grew up in the east valley. I was a team swimmer for Northern Arizona University, where I received a Bachelor of Science degree in 2006. I graduated from Colorado State University with a DVM in 2011. From there, I spent 3 years in Texas before coming home to the valley and joining the Beardsley Animal Hospital team. I continued my education and graduated with a Master's in Public Health from the University of Minnesota in January 2016. My primary interests in veterinary medicine include internal medicine and public health. My hobbies include CrossFit, scuba diving, snowboarding, and spending time with my husband, 3 children, and 2 dogs.

Born and raised in Arizona, I attended Arizona State University for my undergraduate career, where I studied history and biology. I attended veterinary school at Western University in Southern California, where I earned my DVM in 2014 and joined the Beardsley team in June 2015. My veterinary interests include internal medicine, surgery, and dermatology, among others. In my free time, my wife and I enjoy playing with our two daughters and our dog, Emma. I also enjoy hiking, watching sports, and fly fishing.
