Technician SupervisorDesiree G
Veterinary Tech School: College of Southern Nevada
I was born in MO but my father was in the USAF so we moved around a lot. I consider Vegas to be my home town as I have been here most of my life and graduated from Rancho H.S.
I have over 25 yrs experience in the veterinary field. I have always known that I wanted to work with animals from a very young age. I started right out of high school as a kennel attendant with the intention of going to Veterinary School. I attended UNLV as premed but then decided that I would rather have a more hands-on experience with the patients so I gradually moved up to veterinary assistant. I attended the first Vet Tech Program at CSN and got my LVT license in 1999.
I really enjoy doing dental cleanings and making a really yucky mouth look great with pearly white teeth. I enjoy sharing the benefits made to these patients inside and out.
Outside of work I like to spend time with my two children. We enjoy going on outings to museums, state parks and traveling. I also like reading, movies, concerts and plays.
I have two dogs: Ginger & Bernie
Three cats: Skittles, Bubby & Katie Purry.
I also have a rabbit, guinea pig and tropical fish
Licensed Veterinary TechnicianShilo F
I moved to Las Vegas from California in 1985 and have lived here for 28 years. I have 4 dogs of which 3 are dogs that I rescued. My time is usually spent relaxing at home, but I am always up for whatever if the opportunity arises. I graduated high school in 1993 and did not decide to go to school to be a veterinary technician until 2006. I finished school and began my internship right here at VCA Nellis in the summer of 2007 and was hired as an employee shortly thereafter. I enjoy trying to make sure that the clients and pets leave here happy. I also can be that shoulder to cry on if that’s the case too.
Licensed Veterinary TechnicianJeanine L
I was born in Pennsylvania and moved to southern California when I was 2 years old. I have lived in Las Vegas for over 24 years. I have been working in the veterinary field since 1995 and still, my favorite part of the job is playing with puppies and kittens. When I am not at work, I like to read, do yoga, and spend time with my family.
I have three dogs: Ike (14 year old Shepherd mix), C.C. (7 year old Lab/Coon hound mix), and Tough Guy (10 years old)
I have two cats: Wrecks (17 years old) and Kliffurd (16 years old)
I was born and raised in San Diego, CA. About 10 years ago, I moved to Las Vegas. My first job in the veterinary field was at VCA Nellis in 1994. I enjoy all aspects of my job, whether it is giving vaccines or taking care of sick and injured pets.
I have three dogs: Brutis (a chocolate lab), Sadie (a boxer), and Lil Pooper (a mix).
I am originally from the Stockton/Modesto area of California but have been living here in Las Vegas for over 17 years. I have been working in the veterinary field since April 2001 and absolutely love helping animals every day. When I am not working, I enjoy camping, riding quads out in the desert, hiking, going to the lake, or anything outside.
I have two dogs, a Chihuahua and a hound mutt mix. I also have two cats and a rabbit.
