    I have worked at VCA Gateway Animal hospital since 2000.I have worked in the veterinary field since 1995 and have been an RVT since 2000.  We have two dogs, Daisy and Cole, and two cats, Missy and Ross.  The thing I like the most about my job is interacting with the pets and their people.  Outside of work I enjoy running, hiking, cooking and reading.

    I joined VCA Gateway Animal Hospital in 2004 but have been with VCA for 12 years now.  My animal family includes 3 larges dogs, Spencer, Spirit and Simon, and 2 cats, Charlito and Lyla.  I enjoy being outdoors, camping and spending time at the ocean.  My favorite part of my job is helping care for animals and making a positive difference in their lives as well as their owner's lives.  I have a special interest in animal dental prophylaxis and care.

    I have been working at different VCA hospitals since 2011.  I just recently joined VCA Gateway Animal Hospital as a veterinary assistant.  When I am not at work I enjoy hiking, camping, boating, cooking, creative writing and traveling.  What I like most about my job is witnessing the mutualistic human-animal bond and providing emotional support as a supplement to medical care.

    I have been working with VCA Gateway Animal Hospital since 2011.   I am originally from Galt, California.  I have one dog, a German Shepherd, named Sansa.  When I am not at work I enjoy video games, Netflix, getting outdoors, mountain biking, reading, fitness, and playing/hanging out with my friends and dog.  I really like working with animals and seeing them get better and go home with their happy owners.  I also like working in a family like environment with a  team oriented goal.

    I have worked at VCA Gateway Animal Hospital since 2007.  I have 3 rescue animals that I acquired while living in Sacramento; One dog, Sierra, a pit bull mix, and two cats, Spike & Slick.  I enjoy spending time with my two year old son, he is my world.  On our days off we enjoy going to the park, fishing and outside stuff.  I also enjoy riding my horses and spending time with my husband and family.  My favorite part of my job is our patients; the happy dogs and the sweet cats that we get to work on each day.  The most rewarding part is seeing the animals back to normal or recover from something traumatic that happened.  Seeing how happy and thankful their families are is so rewarding.
