    I started out at VCA Cat Hospital as a receptionist on May 10th 1999. I truly enjoyed the hustle and bustle at the front desk. At this point many of our clients are like family to me. Seeing them on a weekly basis for 14 years certainly draws you closer.

    I started managing the practice in August 2003. The experience has been challenging, yet rewarding. I'm so glad that VCA has afforded me the opportunity to grow in the company!

    I have one cat named Sergio Maximus.  He is a handful and a nice addition to my family.  My husband and step-son treat him like a baby playing hide and go seek and laser tag with him.  Cats bring so much joy!

Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you.
