Kennel AssistantJodi H.
Jodi joins our VCA family with almost a decade of animal experience! Growing up in the country, Jodi always had several animals she was taking care of including horses, donkeys, chickens and ducks. She always knew there was no better way to spend her time. Most recently, she came from a boarding facility and has really enjoyed taking care of dogs and cats. Jodi has a long time K9 companion, Gus, and two parakeets, Petey and Precious. Taking care of animals is her long time passion and something she truly loves doing. We are excited to have her!
Kennel AssistantKali S.
Kali is a recent graduate from Sandra Day O'Connor High School in Helotes, Texas. She was very active in the FFA and the 4-H Clubs, with more than eight years of showing her animals and raising lambs, pigs and rabbits. She has learned a lot of responsibility as to what it takes to care for a show animal. Kali has always been crazy about animals from a young age. She used to help her Grandmother walk her dogs, and help with treating them if they were sick. She is looking forward to working at our hospital and learning from all our experienced staff members!
Jake's love for animals began at a young age. As a child in Chicago, he found, saved, fed, and bathed everything from kittens to old homeless dogs, motherless birds to baby squirrels that fell out of their nests. After high school he wanted to be a vet or a singer (as music is another passion of his since childhood). As a struggling theater arts major at collage in Houston he began his career in the animal industry as a groomer apprentice working under multiple master groomers at a well known pet retail store. He seemed to have a "way" with even the most unruly pets. He completed grooming school and after 7 years in corporate retail grooming mastering all breed clips and coats. He has also received numerous pet safety awards, special recognitions, and many returning customers who still use him as their personal groomer today. He broadened his horizons and perfected his craft while doing mobile grooming at the homes of some of Houston's and Katy's elite, including socialites, professional athletes, matriarchs of the Houston business scene. Though his grooming skills are above average, his customer service is second to none, always willing to inform, educated, and make suggestions to give the owner and pet the best lives possible together. He consistently goes above and beyond for his clients. "Grooming is my contribution to the animal world, a pet that is appealing to the eye is more likely to receive affection from humans". Love is all these pets have received for over 10 years from Jake and he loves meeting new friends and their owners.
