Veterinary AssistantOscar Martinez
Veterinary Tech School: Long Technical College
My name is Oscar and I have lived in the Coachella Valley for most of my life. I graduated from Coachella Valley High School in 2004 and went to Long Technical College in Phoenix, AZ to study and become a Veterinary Technician. While in school I worked for Dr. Hirsch in Phoenix for a year and a half. I missed my family and decided to move back to the Coachella Valley with my son and two cats (Fiona and Phelix). I have added two dogs to our family, a male mastiff mix (Ruphus) and a female pomeranian (zhu zhu). I have been here at VCA All Creatures since 2008. The staff and clients have enriched my professional and personal experiences. I love being able to put the sparkle back into the eyes of our four legged family members.

Veterinary AssistantAmber S
School: University of Cincinnati, B.S. Biology
Hey everyone! I'm from Cincinnati originally and have travelled the country working with animals of all shapes and sizes. My background includes working at a salmon hatchery as an AmeriCorps volunteer in Alaska, an educator at a children's museum in Hawaii, a bird specialist in Texas, and a zookeeper and rehabilitator here in the Coachella Valley. No creature is too small or slimy! I started working with domestics at an emergency hospital but the lure of the exotics and a previous working relationship with Dr. Fenton was all I needed to come here to All Creatures Animal Hospital. I love the amazing relationship we are able to cultivate with our clients and I look forward to meeting you!
Veterinary AssistantRyan Whitlow
I was raised in Palos Verdes and moved to Santa Barbara after high school. I moved to the desert in 2004 to be closer to my parents once they retired and thought it would be a good environment to raise my children. I have four beautiful boys: Robin, Nathaniel, Sammy and Louie, who are my life. I enjoy helping people with their animals and have really enjoyed the VCA All Creatures Animal Hospital team. The facility is amazing as well as the staff. I have an upbeat and happy demeanor and I look forward to getting to know you!
