"I am so fortunate to be able to spend my days surrounded by people, from co-workers to pet parents, who share my passion and love for animals. I could not think of anything I would rather do then be able to witness the bond between people and their furry family members every day!"
Office ManagerCrystal Heath
Crystal started with VCA as a receptionist and has since worked her way through each department in the hospital. She enjoys her job because of her love for good customer service, the Animal Advocates program, taking radiographs, learning, and--most of all--her love for helping pets. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends.
"[I love being here for the] Patients you get to see grow, relationships you build with clients, cases you get to learn from, and enjoying every minute, meanwhile feeling good that you make a difference."

"I have wanted to make a career of working with animals since I was a little kid. There's a purity and beauty that is unique to each animal and they have fascinated me forever. I can honestly say that all of the best characteristics that we strive for can be observed by watching our pets. They have an honesty, a loyalty, a selflessness, and a sense of humor that people envy. I think it's a privilege to spend my career caring for animals."
