Kennel AssistantTammy E
Tamrah has been aspiring to become a Veterinarian since she was 7 years old. She grew up in Mission Viejo with many animals in her home: iguanas, rabbits, cats, dogs, hamsters, guinea pigs etc. She completed her first semester at Professional Veterinarian Assistant School, which included an externship at VCA Arroyo Animal hospital. From there she received a job working for a sister hospital, VCA Saddleback, as a receptionist. Shortly thereafter she was given the opportunity to work more closely with the animals at VCA Mission Viejo Animal hospital where she is now a Pet Care Specialist. Tamrah loves what she does everyday and is looking forward to what the future may hold for her in the veterinarian field.
