Cherie started with VCA in April, 2010 as one of our receptionists. She has a deep love for animals and enjoys helping people and their pets stay healthy. Cherie has 5 cats and a dog named Penny. She enjoys spending time with her two children and pets.
Why am I here?
I orginally started working here to change careers from retail and because I have always had a strong passion for animals. After being around the patients and seeing the doctors and my coworkers caring and dedication to their treatment I came to love it even more.
School: Angley College, Phlebotomy
Laura joined VCA in January of 2013 as a receptionist, but she also helps out as a technician when needed. She grew up in California and Virginia, but has lived in Florida for over 20 years. She has been working in the animal field for over 5 years and she has 3 pets of her own, Mr. Monk, Charlie Brown and Cole. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family, fishing, hiking, traveling and camping.
Why am I here?
I am often asked "Why do I do this job?". The answer to this question is very easy, I have LOVED animals for as long as I can remember and being in a position to provide quality care and work with people is, to me, the perfect job. I get to meet new people every day, interact with pets, watch puppies and kittens grow, be a shoulder to cry on when they are sick, celebrate a pet's recovery, and help our clients really feel like part of our VCA family.
