Technician SupervisorKimberly Raupp
I have always had a passion for animals. There were always puppies, dogs, and cats that "followed me home", when I was a child. I begged my mom for a pony, and was convinced it could live in the shed in our suburban backyard. I always knew that I would some how work with animals when I grew up.
I am married with three children. I am owned by four dogs, six cats, two parrots, and a variety of exotic pets, including "Bubba", the fifty-five pound tortoise. I attended the veterinary technician program held at Wayne State, and became a licensed veterinary technician.
I joined the VCA Allen Park Animal Hospital family in 2004. I enjoy every day interactions with our wonderful clients and our patients. Am dedicated to providing the best care possible and treat each patient as if they were my own pet. I have continued my education and enjoy counseling owners on nutrition and how they too, can help their pet companions live a long and healthy life.
Licensed Veterinary TechnicianCraig Sklarczyk
Hello my name is Craig and I am a Technician at VCA Allen Park. As far back as I can remember I have always wanted to help animals. Prior to coming to VCA, I volunteered at Wyandotte Animal Shelter and enjoyed helping the animals there. I am currently attending Wayne State University to become a licensed Veterinarian Technician and plan to continue on to pursue a bachelors in biology degree. I have a 3 year old Shiba Inu named Chloe and a short-haired cat named Tiger. I have always wanted to get a job in the animal field and am very happy and honored to work at VCA.
Hi my name is Kim. I’m currently the mom of several rescued Chihuahuas, 2 cats and a bird. I have always loved animals. They have been a major part of my life. I have done obedience and agility in the past. I have worked as a technician for approximately 20 years. I find it very rewarding helping pets stay healthy and to help them recover from an illness.
I have a son with M.S. so my dogs get to spend time visiting in the nursing home which they totally enjoy! I believe dogs are not just my pets but are family members and bring so much joy to my life!
Hi there, I am Jessica. I have loved animals as far back as I can remember. When I was little, I decided that I wanted to work with animals in any way that I could. After high school, I got a job as a Pet Care Technician at a Pet Resort and I spent the next 7 years there and loved every moment. But then business was not doing so well and I got laid off and decided to go to hair school and worked as a Licensed Cosmetologist for a few years. I enjoyed it but knew that I needed to get back to working with animals. That’s when I decided to go back to school to get my associates degree in applied science for veterinary technology. I have always brought my pets to VCA hospitals, and I knew that I wanted to become part of the VCA team by the way I was treated as a client. I currently have two dogs, a lab mix, “Nelly” and a Chihuahua, “Peanut”. I also have three cats, “Munchie”, who I adopted from a barn, “Fieval” and “Fiona” who are siblings that were found on North Territorial Rd when they were about 4 weeks old. I also have a wonderful husband who has accepted the fact that we will always have pets in our home which made him a keeper! I look forward to meeting you and your pets here at VCA Allen Park.
Veterinary AssistantBrandy Crenshaw
My name is Brandy Crenshaw. I am a graduate of Sanford-Brown College. I obtained my associates degree in applied science and after I take my board exams I will be a Licensed Technician. I plan to grow within the VCA Company to become a technician. I am a Veterinary assistant at this time. I have always had a passion for animals and the joy they bring their owners. I believe that being in the animal medical field, not only saves animals, but their owners as well. As I do, I believe pet owners think of their pets more as family than a pet. My family consists of my four dogs and two cats :) and I would not trade them for a dime in this world. I want to continue to learn until I can not learn anymore, so that I can make a difference.
