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 apart 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 over VERY spoiled cat Mama's, and our bearded dragon Charlie.
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!!
