Kennel AssistantJustine Groesser
My name is Justine. I am part of the graduated class of 2016. I just recently started working at VCA Cherry Bend Animal Hospital. I have enjoyed being around animals my entire life. I couldn't think of a better job to have. I love to learn to learn new things. I plan on going to college in the fall.
Kennel AssistantCarlee Novak
Hi I'm Carlee. I started working in the kennels when I was in high school. I left for a while to attend college at LSSU and earned my bachelors degree in Fire Science with a minor in Criminal Justice Corrections as well as my Emergency Medical Technicians license. I work a full time job and found extra time in my schedule. I missed caring for the animals so decided to pick up a part time working with the 4 legged critters again.
I have two Australian shepherds who keep me busy: Jitte, 2 years, blue Merle boy, pronounced G-Tay who I've had since he was a puppy and Dixie, 4 years, red Merle girl, who I adopted from a family down south. I also have a snow leopard gecko who hangs out with me, he isn't quite a year old yet.
Kennel AssistantTaylor Seeley
My name is Taylor and I joined the team in March of 2016. Ever since I was young I have taken all my pets to VCA Cherrybend, I simply would not take them anywhere else. My passion is animals of all shapes and sizes. Since I have taken interest in adopting animals I have rescued and re-homed three dogs and cats and continue to do so. I have one rambunctious lab mix named Mabel who was also a rescue and I couldn’t be more thankful for her. Joining VCA Cherrybend was and continues to be an amazing opportunity to surround myself and do what I love. I currently am studying to be a veterinary assistant and this position helps me to get the hands on experience I need.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend along with my dog and long-time friends!
My name is Kassie Centilli. I have been pet grooming at VCA Cherrybend Animal Hospital for nearly five years. This past year I also started working in our doggie daycare in the mornings. I have a three year old son named Zander as well as six fur babies. Their names are Ebbadoo (husky mix), Mya (beagle), Marvin (pomeranian) and my cats names are Murphy, Meko, and Mick Swagger. In our spare time we love to go on walks, play at parks, beaches and go out for ice cream! I love all animals but my favorite is a cow! In fact, I'm a vegetarian because I love cows so much. I hope to meet you soon and if any of your animals need a bath or their hair styled please keep me in mind at VCA Cherrybend Animal Hospital.
