Ed Moersfelder, President
Ed was born to a farm family in central Wisconsin before the Korean War. He was trained as an English teacher, tax attorney, fly fisherman, and thespian. He is recovering from the first three, though he will still occasionally fly fish if required by polite company. When he is not acting, writing, tilting at environmental windmills, or presiding as President of the Animal Foundation of Amery Board of Directors, you can find him digging leeks, cutting wood, or sleeping by the old wood stove with Carter the Cat on his lap. He considers it a privilege to work with the dedicated folks at the AFA who are working to make pet care available and affordable to the less fortunate.




Kris Jaastad, Vice President / Secretary
Kris is an avid animal lover with more than 40 years experience as a pet "parent." Kris works at MRL Manufacturing in Amery as a Human Resource Manager. She and her partner in life, Mike West, share their home with two dogs, Brutus & Cody, and three cats, Mea, Pearl, & Casper. They all live in rural Amery. Kris is a proud member of the AFA Board of Directors and believes wholeheartedly in Community Pet Hospital’s mission helping pets and people in need.






David Clausen, Treasurer
Dave and his wife Sue, live on a farm near Amery. Seventeen year-old Elvira the cat (dogs have owners – cats have staff) has them well trained. When he is not volunteering as a veterinarian at Community Pet Hospital, Dave can generally be found outdoors. Walking, gardening, cutting and splitting wood, making maple syrup, and generally enjoying the natural world are what he enjoys most. His interest in natural resources and the environment have resulted in a second volunteer job as a member of the State of Wisconsin Natural Resources Board. Dave is proud to serve on the board of the Animal Foundation of Amery.



Dan Lien, Director
Dan is a lifelong Amery resident and retired banker. He and his wife Margie live in Amery and have been owned by dogs for more than 50 years. They are currently dogless but always tempted.












Karen Nielsen, Development Director / Administrator
Karen's life experiences as a veterinary technician and practice manager, as well as a partner with her husband in Nordic Woodworks, have been building blocks for her work at the Foundation. The Mission of the Foundation, to advocate for the welfare of animals and the environment, matches her personal belief best described in the following quote from Mahatma Ghandi: "The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated."
