Technician SupervisorSarah Fritz
I grew up in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Needless to say moving to Nevada has been an adjustment for me. I have been with VCA Feline Medical Center for 9+ years. I love the outdoors! Give me a lake surrounded by pine trees and I'm a happy girl. My husband and I had our first child recently. Watching her grow and learn is the most rewarding and amazing thing I have ever experienced. I just love being a Mommy. I have two spoiled cats, Alfie and Bonzo, who have me wrapped around their little paws. Cats have always been a big part of my life, which is why I love what I do so much!. I am here to ensure that each and every cat is given the love, attention, and nursing care it needs and deserves.
Licensed Veterinary TechnicianAmber Nawaz
Veterinary Tech School: Carrington College
Hello! My name is Amber and I grew up in Lodi, CA. I moved to Sparks, Nevada in August 2013 to pursue a career in the Veterinary Technician world. So far I love my job and I love this town.
I graduated from Carrington College in Stockton, CA in January 2013. In July I passed the California exam to become a RVT. I am currently working on becoming a RVT in Nevada.
As much as I love working with small animals, my long term goal is to work with horses and other large animals.

Veterinary AssistantMelissa Kight
I was born and raised right here in the Reno/Sparks area and attended Reed High School. I then went on to do my undergrad at the University of Arizona in Tucson, AZ where I graduated with a BS in Veterinary Science. I'm working here because I love cats and want more experience working with them. I'm looking to apply to and attend Vet School in the next year or two, so not only is working here fun, but it will also help me get to where I want to be. Eventually I hope to be a fully certified Veterinarian, possibly working in a shelter!
