    Sondra is the Financial Manager at VCA TLC. Having lived in the South, Midwest, and on the East Coast, she now is happy to call Los Angeles her home.

    Although she has always loved animals, Sondra went to school to become an actress and never expected to work in an animal hospital. However, she believes that life picks you up and lands you in the perfect spot and she finds it immensely satisfying, getting to be a part of a group of people who are helping to keep our little 4-legged friends happy & healthy!

    Her interests include traveling, scuba diving, movies, and learning about ancient advanced civilizations. Sondra enjoys every hour of time spent with her husband, and family and their friends from around the globe.
