Kennel AssistantRicky Elam
Ricky's love for animals started at a young age. He has had multiple types of pets, from dogs and cats, to pigs, goats, and horses. He does not have any pets at the moment, but he is always at a friends house playing with their dogs and/or cats. He has a strong passion for music and actually sings to the dogs and cats that are boarding here at VCA McCormick Ranch.
Ericka was born in Arizona but moved to California where she lived 16 years. She moved back to Arizona and joined VCA McCormick Ranch Animal Hospital about 6 months ago. She has two dogs "Stella" an Italian Greyhound and "Zoe" a Chihuahua-Dachshund mix. Her love for animals made her change careers and become a groomer. She loves grooming dogs and cats. In her spare time, Ericka enjoys hanging out with friends, going to the movies and shopping.
Stephanie is an Illinois native and started her grooming career in 2003. She loves grooming both cats and dogs. She moved to Phoenix from West Hollywood, California where she was working at another VCA Hospital. She enjoys spending time outdoors, but Football season is her favorite time of the year. Her second passion is music (she has a degree in Music Business) and spends most of her free time working with local bands and going to live shows.
