Technician SupervisorJennifer Loomis, R.V.T.
Veterinary Tech School: Foothill Community College
Hello, my name is Jennifer and I have been with VCA Vets & Pets since 2005. Medicine and animals have always held a fascination for me, so what better occupation than to work with both! I love what I do and hope to keep working for many years to come. The greatest feeling is when I can help to save a pet's life. I have a particular interest in anesthesia, and have thought of obtaining a specialty license in this field.
In my spare time, I love to stay busy! I enjoy swimming, scuba diving, mountain climbing, camping, touring with my dance company, and I have even gone sky-diving!
I've always had kitties at home, and also have fostered many of them as well. At home I currently have Desi, Jade, and Cheeto.
Registered Veterinary TechnicianCarol Kincaid
Carol came to us in April of 2011. She has had many years experience in multiple areas of veterinary medicine, including emergency and teaching. She enjoys the challenges that arise with medicine, and helping animals is very rewarding. Bringing sick pets back to health is one of her favorite parts of the job.
Even though Carol has many years experience, she still strives to expand her knowledge to give the best care possible to our animal friends, and hopes to maybe specialize in a certain area some day.
In her time off, Carol enjoys traveling, teaching, and painting landscapes.
Registered Veterinary TechnicianPaulette Rinck, R.V.T.
Veterinary Tech School: Foothill Community College
Hi, my name is Paulette and I've been with VCA Vets & Pets Animal Hospital since June of 2008. Animals have always played a very special role in my life. They give me comfort and I love being able to help them too. One of my favorite parts of my job is giving the pets one-on-one nursing care. Another focus of mine is behavior medicine, and hope to further my education in this field at some point.
I have 2 dogs that bring me joy, Tuli and Abby. They are purebred Basenjis and Abby has even won some awards at dog shows! I enjoy attending shows in my spare time. I also have a fondness for collecting horse figurines.
My name is Julie and I may have recently joined VCA Vets & Pets Animal Hospital, but I have been in the veterinary field for many years. After graduating from Michigan State University, my husband and I moved to the Bay Area for a job opportunity in 1984. It was always my intention to move back, but we're still here!
Our family includes 3 dogs (Jack, Indy, & Gina) and a tortoise, Bengie (after Bengie Molina!) I also have 2 grandchildren, Cailin and Ryan whom I love visiting with.
In my spare time, I enjoy crafting, baking goodies, and traveling with my family.
Veterinary AssistantMythili Hari
School: University of California, Davis, B.S.
Hello, my name is Mythili and I've been with VCA Vets & Pets Animal Hospital since September of 2011. I was drawn to veterinary medicine by my passion for science, medicine and animals. I have always loved animals and wanted to become a doctor since childhood. I also wanted the challenge of diagnosing the pets, since they can't tell you what is wrong with them.
I love coming in to work every day just to see all the different dogs and cats that come in. Each day is a new day with different cases and challenges. I really enjoy helping the animals and also making the clients feel more at ease.
I'm working toward going to vet school in the future and continue to help as many animals as I can in my lifetime. I enjoy singing in my spare time, and my dream is to one day become a playback singer for Bollywood/Indian movies.
Veterinary AssistantGisele Price
Gisele joined us in 2009, after merging with Sara Creek where she'd started in 2007. She was originally drawn to the veterinary field because of her love of animals. Aside from the simple joy of being around them, she loves the feeling she gets from clients who are happy we can make their pets feel better.
She recently graduated from cosmetology school and hopes to one day own her own salon. Gisele enjoys traveling, kick-boxing, and visiting the beach.
Gisele has a pug mix named Miley, and a kitty named Chase.
Veterinary AssistantAriel Wagner
School: University of Oregon
My name is Ariel and I started at VCA Vets & Pets Animal Hospital after graduating from college in 2012. I haved always loved animals, and I also enjoy helping people help their pets live long, happy & healthy lives.
I love seeing patients getting better due to our treatment. When someone comes in and says we have helped their pet recover fully it makes me feel happy to have helped and made a difference in both the owner and the pets life.
In the future, I hope to work with wild and exotic animals- especially bears! During college I spent some time volunteering at a wildlife sanctuary, and I really enjoyed it. I would love to be able to start my own sanctuary for bears.
Veterinary AssistantJennifer Wulff
School: California State University Chico, B.S.
Hi, my name is Jennifer. I joined VCA Vets & Pets Animal Hospital in December 2010, but I had also worked at a VCA hospital in the Sacramento area. I knew veterinary medicine was something I wanted to do after volunteering at a shelter while I was in college. I fell in love with being able to help the sick and disabled animals. One of my favorite things is seeing children with their new puppies and kittens.
At home my husband and I have quite the menagerie including our dogs Sierra and Sugar, and our kitty Simcoe.
In my spare time I enjoy making paper crafts and watching movies. I would also love to travel the world someday!
