Technician SupervisorSheila Wharton, LVT
Veterinary Tech School: CSN
I began my Veterinary career in 1989 as a Kennel Assistant, and became a Licensed Veterinary Technician in 1999. I've been a part of the VCA family since 2003 as a Techician Supervisor. I've always wanted to work with animals since I was a little girl and feel very lucky to be able to have a job that allows me to do what I love and as an added bonus I get to work with awesome people and have relationships with clients and their four legged family members. I spend my free time with my husband and our VERY spoiled cat Termite .

School: Moorpark College
I was born in Toronto, Canada and raised in Los Angeles, CA. I attended Moorpark College for Exotic Animal Training and Management Program from 1991-1993. I then moved to Las Vegas, NV in 1993. Since moving to Las Vegas I have worked with VCA off and on since 1995. I went on to obtain my Veterinary Technician License at CSN in 1999. I was able to work at the Lion Habitat at the MGM for 2 1/2 years and with Siegfried and Roy for 11 years. When I am not at work I enjoy being at home with my wife and our two dogs Roxy and Pooh Bear.
I'm from Midwest City, Oklahoma. I moved to Las Vegas in 2003, where I began my career in the Veterinary medical field. I have worked for VCA Decatur Animal Hospital since 2007 and have grown to love the family we all have created together. I recently graduated from PIMA Medical Institute where I received my Tech In Training License and I am currently waiting to take my State Board exam to receive my Veterinary Technician License.
I have a pomeranian mix named Lilly, with whom I've shared 12 years of my life with and a pug name Romie who I've had for the past 3 years. I also have 2 cats; Luna is 5 and Mieko, who is 3. In my free time, I enjoy hiking and watching football. GO PACKERS!!
