  • Certified Veterinary Technician

    Bonnie Farago

    Bonnie has been in the veterinary field for 10 years and sees both the ups and downs of being in the veterinary field. She is such an animal lover and hates seeing any animal in pain or discomfort. She loves seeing a sick pet become well again. She has 2 cats, a Himalayan named Izzybella and a Persian name Sophee. On her spare time she loves her volunteer work at the Big Cat Resuce in Tampa and loves to play volleyball and go to the beach.

    Ann Hendrickson
    Veterinary Tech School: SPC

    I graduated from St. Petersburg College with a degree in veterinary technology this past August.  I will be taking the VTNE national examination during the June/July window to achieve certification.  I am a full time employee at VCA Noah's in St. Petersburg FL.  I started here April 2, 2014.  I was born in Pittsburgh, PA but grew up in Bridgeport, WV.  I am just beginning my career in veterinary medicine after spending most of my professional life in outside sales. I also have a B.A. in Broadcast Communications from Salem College, Salem WV. I graduated in 1981.  I have three cats:  Jack (9), Nemo (9) and Carmen (6).  Carmen and Nemo are all black cats and Jack is a tabby.  They were all rescues.  I love fostering kittens from Pinellas County Animal Services and have been helping them for the past three years.  I also fostered when I lived in Washington, D.C. for Montgomery County Humane Society.  I have always wanted to work in an animal hospital and have been lucky that I was able to have a second career with VCA and Noah's.  It is very rewarding to help a sick animal recover from an accident or illness.  I also enjoy meeting the clients and getting to know their pets.  I am hopeful the Washington Redskins will eventually make it back to the Super Bowl.

    Lisa Yates
    Veterinary Tech School: SPC

    Lisa has been around animals her entire life.  She does what she does because there is nothing more satisfying than sloppy kisses and being covered in fur head to toe.  She loves her job and would not trade it for anything else in the world.  She is a proud owner of one kitty named Kioey and a chihuahua named Zoey.  On her spare time she enjoys spending time at the beach, kayaking, and spending time with friends.

  • Veterinary Assistant

    Dawn Cohen

    Dawn grew up in New Bedford, MA.  She has worked tin the veterinary field for over 9 years as surgery technician.  She is currently the proud owner of our "B", the famous pit bull that was attacked by the killer bees, and Caine her 10 year old siamese.

    Dawn does what she does because she loves the choatic atomosphere an emergency hospital has and enjoys seeing the pet going home well.
