    Katie Yeiser

    Katie started with VCA Animal Hospitals in March of 2007 as a veterinary technician. She joined the fabulous team at VCA Lewis Animal Hospital in 2010. She has spent many years training horses and has competed in 3 day eventing since she was 8 years old. While growing up in Western Howard County, she participated in 4-H with her rabbits, goats and horses. An all around animal enthusiast, she now resides in Baltimore with her beloved dog, Noodles.

    "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!"

    Crystal 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."

    Suzanne Strozyk
    School: University of Maryland, B.S. Animal Science

    Suzanne has been with VCA Lewis Animal Hospital since 1982.  She is an extremely experienced and knowledgeable technician and a true patient advocate.  Her special interests include dentistry, behavior and surgery.  She is currently one of the Regional Technical Supervisors and helps other VCA hospitals in our area perform the best level of patient care.  She has two pets of her own; Cindy Lou, a Yorki and Molly, a Chihuahua.

    "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."
