Registered Veterinary TechnicianAndreia Stiffler
Veterinary Tech School: University of Sao Paulo, Brazil
My love for animals led me to acquire a degree as a Doctor in Veterinary Medicine, which I earned at the University of Sao Paulo in my native Brazil. Since moving to the United States in 2003 I have been working as a Licensed Veterinary Technician (LVT). I worked in Boston at a private practice for 3 years and later at the Emergency and Critical Care unit at the Massachusetts SPCA Angell Animal Hospital for 2 years. Since moving to Dallas in 2008, I have been working at VCA Lakewood. My husband and I are parents to two wonderful boys that keep us busy, Eduardo and Miguel. Together we care for our three cats, Luke Skywalker (a Maine coon mix), Han Solo, and Princess Leia (a calico). We also have a freshwater aquarium and grow carnivorous plants. I love meeting and helping our clients at VCA Lakewood and I always enjoy caring for their wonderful pets!
Registered Veterinary TechnicianKelly Witty
Veterinary Tech School: Cedar Valley
Kelly is a Dallas native and has always been a true champion for neighborhood strays. She has provided a home, love and medical care for many over the years. She currently shares her home and her heart with two rescued Greyhounds and an abandoned Chihuahua. It was Kelly’s life-long love for all animals that prompted her to change careers after years in accounting and operations management. She graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in Business Administration but after working many years in the corporate world, she decided to follow her heart and headed back to school at Cedar Valley.
Kelly graduated with an Associate’s degree in Applied Science in Veterinary Technology and passed both the State and National Board exams to become a Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT).
While she attended Cedar Valley, she was an integral part of her class, serving as the President of the Vet Tech Student Association, where she organized and participated in many animal-related programs in the community. She was also voted by the Faculty, Staff and peers at Cedar Valley as Student of the Year just prior to graduation. Kelly continues to support The Greyhound Adoption League of Texas and volunteers for Animal Allies of Texas.
Veterinary AssistantJessica Lopez
Im Jessica, I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas, where I grew up in the east Dallas/ Lakewood area. I attended Woodrow Wilson High School and went on to College in San Antonio, TX. I have 2 sons, a human child named Ethan, and a four-legged hairy canine name Benz. When I'm not working, I spend most of my down time with these two, keeping active and being the best mommy that I can be. I am a true Texas gal, I enjoy real Texas BBQ and taking road trips through south Texas with my kids where the majority of our family lives. I grew up with a love for helping animals. I've worked in human medicine before and come to find that I have more of a passion for helping animals. I take so much pride in what I do and can honestly say that I love my job as a Veterinary Technician. I look forward to meeting you and your furry four legged family members!
Veterinary AssistantElizabeth Marhanka
My name is Elizabeth, but everyone calls me Liza! I grew up right here in Lakewood and am currently pursuing a major in Biology at the University of Oklahoma with the hopes of going to Veterinary School afterwards. Animals and their well-being are my passion, especially ones with wet noses! I have two long-haired dachshunds named Oscar and Snickers and a beta fish named Zeus. I am honored to work at VCA with such fabulous coworkers, patients, and clients. I can’t wait to get to know you and your four-legged children!
Veterinary AssistantJessica Yount
Hi, I’m Jessica! I grew up in Arkansas but have been settled in the Lakewood area for almost 3 years now. Although I miss the country, I consider Lakewood my home and couldn’t see myself living anywhere else for long. I am currently working on my Bachelors in Science at Cedar Valley so that I may transfer to A&M and get a masters in Zoology. I love working with small animals but my passion is to work in wildlife conservation! It’s a dream of mine to be able to travel the world and make a difference at the same time. I have two fur babies, a Maltese/Yorkie mix named Thrasher and a Pekingese mix named Gizmo. In my free time I enjoy longboarding, kayaking, or even reading by the lake. I just love being outside! It’s such a treat to be able to care for all your fur babies, and everyone of our clients is so appreciative, a day at VCA Lakewood never feels like work. I can’t wait to meet all of you and your sweet ones
