    Yardley Thomack

    My name is Yardley Thomack.  I started working at VCA Cherry Bend Animal Hospital shortly after graduating from high school.  I have always been passionate about animals and was determined to find a job that I enjoyed.  Now I am so blessed to be working as a kennel technician with such a supportive team.  I have a chocolate labrador named Rainier.  Rainier has been by my side since the second grade.  He was my first pet dog, but I have had numerous different types of pets growing up including turtles, hermit crabs, and a bird.  In the future I hope to attend college and become a licensed veterinary technician.  There is no better feeling than helping an animal in need.

    Kassie Centilli

    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.
