    Elias B

    My name is Elias.  I have worked with pets for the past 5 years and am a part of the pet hotel team at Crown Valley.  From my experience working here, I have seen how our veterinarians make a positive difference in our client's lives through taking care of their pets.  We strive to do the same in all areas and that's what makes me enjoy my work here.  In my spare time, I enjoy playing soccer, camping and canyoneering - anything outdoors.  I have two German Shepherds named Rex and Axel.

    Hi.. my name is Nicole.  I have bee working at Crown Valley Animal Hospital since August 2012 in our doggie playgroup.  The things I enjoy most about my job are getting to know all your dogs and bringing my own dog Lucy to play with them too.  Lucy loves doggie playgroup and always waits by the door for me to come back from my breaks.  In my spare time, I like to take Lucy for walks on the beach.

    Sarah D

    My name is Sarah and you'll find me caring for your pets in Crown Valley Animal Hospital's pet hotel.  The rest of my time is split pretty evenly between school, work, and the beach.  Whenever I can, I head off to the ocean and surf until the sun sets.  My dog, Leo, tags along!  He loves the sand, but is not a huge fan of the water.  Neither is my cat, Mitochondria.  Mito likes to spend his days lounging around our backyard, enjoying the California sun.  Wherever I am, I love to have a smile on my face and my furry friends at CVAH allow me to do just that!  I love the pets at the hospital and hotel as if they were my own and I wouldn't want to spend my day doing anything else.

    Hi, I'm Ryan and I have been working at Crown Valley Animal Hospital for 2 years.  Working here is a blast, especially when I play soccer with the dogs and my co-workers are the best.  I have two dogs that I love and they show me just as much love back.  I like to ride motorcycles and race cars for fun.  Going to the desert with my family and friends for a peaceful trip is something I also enjoy.
