Receptionist SupervisorMisti Parido
I love helping animals of all kind. I recently had my first son and thought it would be difficult to return to work...of course I miss him, but I truly enjoy working at VCA Rock Creek, everyone here is great to work with! It's nice to come to work, be able to serve clients and take care of their loving pets.
I have lived at VCA Rock Creek since I was a kitten, the staff took me in when I needed a home and medical attention..I wasn't as handsome as I am today, but they still cared for me and loved me, I quickly felt at home here. VCA Rock Creek is my home and everyone here is my family, I love them all..
Please come by and see me I'm usually at the front desk, making sure everything runs smoothly and hopefully someone drops me a treat.
I love working with animals because I love to help them. This has always been a passion of mine. Ever since I can recall, I've wanted to be a vet, and that has not changed as I've gotten older, there is no doubt in my mind that it ever will! I hope to one day make it my life's work, for now I enjoy working at VCA Rock Creek and gain as much experience as possible.
As a child I had 2 cats, until I reached the age of 5 and got my first puppy, who I named "Bandit". He soon became my very best friend and my shadow. Fifteen years later that has not changed, because of his love and affection I decided to give back and came to VCA Rock Creek, I love working with pets and help them have the best possible life.
I believe that animals/pets are good souls with a disadvantage of not being able to speak. I feel as if it's my responsibility to provide that voice for them and give them the love they deserve. I've grown to value their friendship and their place here on earth. Animals have always been a big part of my life, they love unconditionally and stand by you no matter what. Taking care of animals and knowing that I can help them reassures me of what my purpose in this world is all about.
