Hi! Thank you for allowing us to be part of your pet's health team. My own team consists of Jackson, THE best Australian cattle dog and Harriet, a work-in-process coated Xoloitzcuintle. I am aided by my bed warmer cats: Davis and Boppy. My husband and I are both managed by our 2 young boys. I graduated from Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine and did my undergraduate studies at the University of California, Davis. I would love to do more traveling but in the meantime, am content exploring various eateries. Feel free to give me your food recommendations!

As I grew up, our family was known as the local zoo. We had every critter off the street that you can think of. My mother never turned away a hurt or nursing baby, and I followed in her footsteps. I knew to be happy in my career, I needed to help and care for animals. During my time in Humboldt I was able to do Wildlife rescue after an oil spill and I KNEW this is my calling. I have worked at the Animal Clinic since Aug. 1999. I started as a kennel technician, then moved to reception, then Veterinary assistant and now my current position as Office Manager. I enjoy knowing that when I come to work, I can possibly make a difference in an animals life and possibly ease the concern of their owner. We have a great, fabulous mixture of staff that I call my “work family”. I bought a house a few years back and live there with my 2 rescue dogs, Tika, and Dede, and 6 (over a span of 15 years) of my bottle fed baby kittens, who are now cats; Bunny Boy, Mimi, Slim Jim, Poppy, Possum, and Stewie! I love my crazy fuzzy crew and would never trade them for anything! Grew up in Stockton, Ca and attended college in Humboldt Ca. (loves the Redwoods)Loves her babies (pets), gardening, swimming, reading, hiking and road trips

I graduated from Carrington College in 2016 with a 4.0 GPA. Shortly after, I passed my exams and became a Registered Veterinary Technician. I started working at Animal Clinic back in 2014 while I was in school and moved to the Bay Area after graduation for a year. There, I became very passionate about low-stress handling and canine rehabilitation. I especially love working with geriatric pets and pets with mobility issues. I believe that they can still live full, happy lives with a little patience and extra care. I moved back to Stockton to be closer to my family. I currently live with my boyfriend Matt, 2 dogs named Cooper and Daisy (pictured), and Mamacita the cat. In my spare time, I enjoy cosplaying, doing escape rooms, playing video games, and binge-watching my favorite shows on Netflix. I also manage our social media accounts and love taking pictures of our adorable patients

I’ve always had a passion for working with animals since I was a little girl. I graduated from the Veterinary Technology program at Carrington College in 2016. My first job in the field was at a Spay & Neuter Clinic while I was still in school. Wanting to gain more experience I took on a position as an emergency technician for nearly 2 years. I started working for the Animal Clinic May of 2018. Although I’ve been fortunate enough to work in different parts of the veterinary field I am happy to be here at the Animal Clinic and be a part of this team. Whether it is saving lives in the ER, or savings lives by prevention, I love my job, and I love what I do. During my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends and fur babies of my own (Buster Posey my Labrador retriever, and Biscuit my cat).

I have always loved animals! I have been working in the veterinary business for 32 years. Animals give us unconditional love which is very humbling. I am very fortunate to love my job, but I also enjoy spending time with my daughter. We like to get in the car and go on adventures…just drive to see where we go with no particular destination in mind. My daughter and our dog love these “road trips”! LOVES, LOVES, LOVES to SING.....her daughter has also followed in her singing footsteps! Sews her own clothing and has patched up staff clothing too, Enjoys cooking.

Animals have always amazed me with their tolerance, healing, resilience, trust and undying love. I believe a pets' love is the purest form and best example of what humans were made to be towards each other. I love spending any time, anywhere with my sons, the beach, a baseball game and rooting for the SF Giants (GO GIANTS!)

I have been working at the Animal Clinic for almost 10 years. This is the BEST JOB I have ever had! I am very much a dog person and enjoy taking my dogs and entering them into contests. I spend time training my dogs to do tricks and building costumes for these contests. I have one dog, Fiona, who will play the piano and sing and also snatch a tissue out of the box if i should sneeze! I grew up in Beverly Hills, where most my family still resides. My daughter and her husband, who live in Stockton also, just gave birth to my first grandson in March. What fun!!
