Rhonda is a native of Arizona and has worked in the veterinary field since 1995. The majority of her career has been spent right here at TriCity. Her job is a reflection of her love for animals and the people who care for them, and it is because of this that she continues to enjoy coming to work everyday. Rhonda's primary role at the hospital began as a technician, focusing on surgical procedures and nursing care. She then migrated to a client service position at the front desk where she has continued to excel to this day. Her knowledge and compassion for our clients and their pets are second to none and we are proud to have her on our team! We look forward to her joining the ranks once again with our technicial staff as she will be an integral part of the training of our newer staff members!
