Receptionist SupervisorMartha Rodriguez
Because of her way with animals and people, Martha was encouraged to work in the animal hospital field by a friend. Based on that recommendation, she decided to try it and found that her friend was right; Martha loved working with people and their pets. For Martha, the most rewarding part of her job is working with clients and helping to make sure all of their needs are met.
Now, twenty years later, Martha is the Team Lead Receptionist at VCA Brentwood. She has been a part of the VCA Brentwood team for nine years after her first job at an animal hospital in Beverly Hills where she worked for eleven years.
She has three dogs, two fishes and a bearded dragon. Lola a beagle, is the oldest of the three. Hazel a terrier rescue, and Chevy a bulldog belonging to her youngest son.
Danny was born and raised in the city of Gardena and currently lives in the South Bay. He has always loved animals and because of his great bond with his own dog Yoda, he decided to join VCA Brentwood. He graduated from Cal-State Dominguez with a Bachelor in Business Administration with a concentration in Management. Danny has been in the customer service field since he was 14 years old, and he is currently also working part-time at Petco. On his free time, you can find Danny at the gym, or at the Dodger games.

Thirteen years ago a good friend who already worked at an animal hospital, suggested that since Nona has always loved animals, she should think about working in an animal hospital. So, with that recommendation, she decided to see what it was all about. After almost five years at that hospital, in 2007, Nona moved to VCA Brentwood and has been there ever since.
Nona grew up in Japan and is fluent in Japanese. She is also a professional artist working in a variety of mediums from acrylic to charcoal and water colors.
