    Sylvie Altvatter

    My name is Sylvie, I was born in South Florida and I have been working as a veterinarian technician for over 15 years and absolutely love helping animals. I have been lucky to work with all kinds of animals including exotic animals. When I’m not at work, I like to spend my time outside with family and friends. I go to work everyday with the hope that I can educate owners how to take the best care possible of their pet and to comfort nervous or frightened pets when they are getting examined and or vaccinated. I am happy when a owner and pet leave their appointment informed and satisfied, knowing that we have their best interest in mind.           Why I come to work everyday                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         I go to work everyday with the hope that I can educate owners how to take the best care possible of their pet and to comfort nervous or frightened pets when they are getting examined and or vaccinated.

    Elainea Mann

    I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, raised in South Florida, surrounded by my loving dogs and horses. I currently have 2 Pit Bull mixes. Bella is my 6 year old Pit/Lab mix, whom which I’ve had since she was a wee baby. My other ball of fire is named Caiya, who is still a puppy full of energy at almost 9 months old. A little further west on a farm is my beloved, lazy 13 year old Quarter Horse, Casper. I definitely got lucky with the crazy bunch I have. In my spare time I like to ride my horse, occasionally we’ll enter a race or two. I also like to go to the beach, hiking, anything outdoors or with animals. I loved animals so much I decided to work with them for a very large portion of my life, being a Veterinary Technician is something I have loved being since day one.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Why I come to work everyday                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            I have had a passion for animals and helping them since I was very young. From small hamsters to big pretty horses, I love them all. Working with them everyday gives me a wonderful feeling in my heart, to know that I am helping and can give a voice to a creature who cannot speak for themselves. Everyday is a new adventure for them and myself. There’s always something new to learn and always a new pet to cuddle. I feel very lucky to say that I love the career path I chose. 

    Aletheia Guerrero

    My name is Aletheia Guerrero and I was born in Texas, when I was in fifth grade my family and I moved to florida. Ever since I was a little girl I remember always having a pet whether it was a cat, dog, or hamster. From a young age I learned to take care of animals and love them for each of their own uniqueness and personality. When I was 18 I bought my first ferret named fidget and realized she needed a friend so a year later bought her a friend named luna, which is short for lunatic. Now my oldest ferret is 7 years old and my younger ferret is 6. My parents also own a Shiba Inu named Suki who is 1years old, they plan on showing and breeding her when she becomes a little older. Today I am lucky to say that I am a proud member of VCA and am grateful to have been given the chance to work with the amazing staff and animals.

     Why I come to work everyday

    The reason why I enjoy working with animals is simple, my passion and love for them keeps me going. Being able to walk into a job where there are little smiling faces waiting for me to take care of them makes it all worth it. Knowing that I can help to be a part of an animals wellness gives me great pleasure.
