Client Service ManagerTia C.
Hi there! My name is Tia and I just moved down to Austin from Rochester, NH in July of 2015. My fiancé and I are adventurous and love to see new places, which is one of the reasons we found ourselves making the long journey down to Texas. I recently graduated from the University of New Hampshire with a BS in Neuroscience and Behavior. Back home in NH, I worked at an animal shelter for about three years and completed an internship at an animal hospital for one year. I’ve also had the opportunity to work with horses and dairy cattle during my college career. Now, I am excited to be working at a VCA animal hospital for the first time here in Texas and learning as much as I can to further my knowledge in animal medicine. The team at VCA Ben White have been very welcoming and I’m happy to be welcoming all of our clients and their amazing pets!
Client ServiceCassandra G.
Aloha, I am Cassandra. My husband and I transferred from Hawaii to Fort Hood this summer. We moved here with our pack of fur-babies: Maggie (Shepherd Mix), Madison (Great Dane), Dexter (Pointer Mix), and our newest little one Riley (German Shepherd). On the weekends we love taking our little pack to the park, beach, or hiking. Over the past decade I have worked in Animal Care and have cared for dogs, cats, horses and goats; although in Hawaii I worked mostly with sharks and stingrays and volunteered at the Honolulu Zoo at the Lion and Rhino exhibits. I am so excited to be starting this new adventure in Texas and to be joining the amazing team at VCA Ben White. My dogs are precious to me and I am happy to be at VCA where they care about my pets health as much as I do. I hope that I have the pleasure of meeting you and your fur-family soon
Client ServiceMarisela O.
Hi! My name is Marisela. I joined the veterinary team at VCA Ben White in May of 2016. I previously volunteered at an animal shelter walking dogs and assisting potential adopters. My four legged family consists of two dogs, Magenta (Dachshund) and Rosie (Chihuahua). I'm currently working on my undergraduate degree at Texas State University. I've always sought out a career involving the welfare of animals so I am very exciting about this new opportunity. I look forward to meeting all of our wonderful clients and pets!
Client ServiceMiss Patches
Hi, I'm Patches. I've been Ben White's Clinic Kitty for 2 years after a good Samaritan brought me in off the streets. It's a good thing too because I was an expecting mother of 4. The staff at Ben White nursed me through my pregnancy and were able to find loving homes for my little kittens.
I currently love saying Hi to all the wonderful people who come to visit Ben White and I also enjoy saying Hello to all my kitty companions who come in as well. When I'm not busy greeting people at the door, I like to spend my time either sleeping or helping the receptionist with charts. (aka, I sit on them while they attempt to write in them)
I'm also known for picking on my roommate Sunny. We like to play wrestle in the lobby most of the time, but we also love to take naps in the sun together.
