I started working at VCA El Rancho Animal Hospital in September 2002. Dr. Warren Whalen hired me as a Kennel Assistant and through the years I’ve worked my way up to Technician Supervisor. My job is my passion in life! I really enjoy working with critical patients, and I enjoy building bonds with each and every one of our patients. I have 2 pets of my own my dogs name is Noodles. He’s an 8 year old Cardigan Corgi and my cats name is Bowie he’s an 7 year old Domestic Short Hair, I rescued both of my pets.
