    Samantha, or Sam, joined our team in March of 2014.  After graduating from high school she decided to get her foot in the door by applying at our hospital for animal care.  Her passion for animals was very evident after she told us about her menagerie at home!  She has 4 cats (Big Kitty, Isabel, Pumpkin, and Nimbus), 1 rabbit (Black Jack), and some tropical fish.  She grew up in San Jose and loves being outdoors, with her pets.  While working in kennels she loves seeing new dogs and cats everyday and treating them like they are one of her own.  She hopes to work her way up to being a technician one day.
