    First and foremost, hi!  I'm so happy to be part of the staff at VCA Cherry Bend Animal Hospital.  I started out as a kennel technician at VCA Cherry Bend March of 2014.  I love working along-side my coworkers.  All of them are very knowledgeable and have been working at the hospital for years.  In the short amount of time that I've been employed at VCA Cherry Bend I have learned so much, and I am glad to have been given the oppurtunity to continue learning by becoming a full time receptionist.  I look forward to meeting YOU, our clients. 

    Besides finding my favorite job thus far, this year brings more excitement to my life.  This December I will be marrying the love of my life, Nick.  So please ask me about our wedding plans, I would love to talk about them as right now it consumes my home-life.  As if my life isn't busy enough I have a second job at a local grocery store.  And most importantly my fiance' and I have two fur children.  We have two cats, a 5 year old calico names Pebbles and a 3 year old prince named Cosmo.  Both of which we adopted from the local humane society.

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.
