    Veterinary Tech School: Pierce College

    Hi, my name is Tina, I’m a Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT) and I’m very happy to have joined this excellent team in August 2013. I’ve enjoyed working in the veterinary field for 35 years, My journey has taken me to the Bay area, Southern California, back to the Bay Area, then here to Sonoma County where I’ve been for the last 25 years. I take great pleasure in helping animals and their humans, and look forward to meeting all of you here at VCA Forestville Animal Hospital.

    When I’m not working, I enjoy hanging out with my family, which includes my husband, two kids, one dog, four cats, eight chickens, five snakes and one Sulcata tortoise. I also like to be outdoors hiking, camping or flying kites.

    Samara J

    Samara Johnson has always been an animal lover. She has been working as a Veterinary Assistant here at VCA Forestville Animal Hospital since 2015 and loves it. Caring for animals is just one of the activities that she loves doing. Her interests also include creating artwork, horseback riding, snowboarding, hiking, and relaxing at the house with a nice cup of tea. Originally born and raised in Alaska, she came to California to study Studio Art and French at Sonoma State University. Needless to say, Sonoma County stole her heart and she decided to continue living amongst the redwoods after graduating from SSU.

    Hello, my name is Hailey Jean. I am currently attending SRJC to fulfill requirements to become a licensed Veterinary Technician.  I aspire to go to UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine to become a Veterinarian. I love all animals, especially my precious pup Molly, but I have had a special place in my heart for horses before I could even talk.  I own two horses, Gus and Ruby, and having them is my pride and joy in life.

    My name is Brittney Wilson. I grew up in Sonoma County and have lived here my whole life.  In my freshman year of college was going to school to be a pediatric nurse.   I got a job as a kennel technician because I needed a job, and I then discovered my passion for great medicine and caring for  animals, and changed my focus.  I am currently attending Santa Rosa Junior College to become a Registered Veterinary Technician.  Since 2011, I’ve had experience in surgery, critical care, treatment, and procedure positions. Outside of work, I enjoy the beautiful Sonoma County scenery on several hiking trails and camping. I also enjoy playing pool and having a beer with a few friends. I also enjoy sculpture and photography in my free time and I have a beautiful kitty named Luna.
