Veterinary Support

  • Technician Supervisor

    Lindsey K.

    Lindsey has been a technician for 13 years and couldn't imagine doing anything else. She is the Technician Supervisor at VCA Almaden Valley, and has worked here since 2006. She has worked mostly in dog/cat practices and one hospital where they saw only birds. She loves working with wildlife and has had about 6 years of experience working with animals in a wildlife program called W.E.R.C. She has two dogs and a very talkative cat that she pulled out of the bushes when he was only a couple days old and raised it by hand. She loves the staff and hospital here because she says that we are like a family and that is a rare thing to find in an occupation.
