Technician ManagerJohn Cha
Veterinary Tech School: Professional Veterinary Assistant School
It is difficult to write in a small summary what John means to VCA La Mirada. His professional career with our hospital spans almost 2 decades and his dedication to pets and attention to detail in their medical care is impeccable. John has proven himself the glue that holds our treatment department together and has mentored countless technicians over the years. Although he loves working with all animals his personal passion lies in birds and reptiles. You can always count on John to bring one of his interesting pets to work from baby birds to exotic lizards. John will be celebrating his 20th Anniversary with VCA this coming July; we are very lucky to have someone like John on staff and his contribution to the hospital is immeasurable.
