August is a California native who grew up in Monrovia. She graduated from CSUN in 2013 with a degree in Biology. She plans on applying to Physicians Assistant School this year and is very excited.
She enjoys hiking, watching movies/documentaries, working out, playing video games and reading mystery novels. August shares her life with a very cuddly cat named “Mango” and he loves playing fetch and lounging around the house.
August joined VCA TLC in 2013 and what she loves most is having the opportunity to work with amazing people that all have one goal in common and that is helping and healing animals.
Cherie was born and raised in sunny San Diego, California. After graduating high school she studied abnormal psychology and criminal justice at Grossmont College.
She moved to Los Angeles 3 years ago and found her real love working in the veterinary field and is hoping to pursue a career in animal behavior and veterinary nursing. When not working as a receptionist, she is busy as our adoption coordinator, helping to find homes for the VCA TLC rescue animals.
Cherie is an avid reader, a movie and television buff and has a strange love for the mustache. She has two terrier rescues that go by "Tribble" and "The
Doctor" and one adorable chinchilla by the name of "Squishy".
Tim Rathke, a Northern Illinois native, is a receptionist here at VCA TLC. He has been an actor/performer since the age of 6. However, he found his passion for our little friend outweighed the stereotypical "actor/waiter" lifestyle. So, Tim danced his way into our doors in 2006, and he has been entertaining our patients, clients, and staff ever since.
Currently awaiting his BIG BREAK, he can also occasionally be seen making the masses laugh as a stand-up comedian. VCA-TLC has also brought him his first voice over gig as our infamous recorded greeting! His other interests include music, piano, dance, and culinary exploration.
It brings him much joy to help provide comfort and happiness to our companions and their owners.
China started out her career with animal by volunteering at a small animal hospital in the valley as well as the West Valley Animal Shelter. Her experience took her to caring for pets at a busy doggy day care in Studio City where she was able to work more closely with pets and their owners. We were lucky to have China join our team at VCA TLC in 2010 as a receptionist and technician assistant. China loves working with the animals at VCA TLC and helping to make them happy and healthy. China is currently enrolled in Los Angeles Pierce College and planning to enter the veterinary technology program very soon.
