Veterinary Support

  • Technician Supervisor

    Jennifer Loomis, R.V.T.
    Veterinary Tech School: Foothill Community College

    Jennifer has been with VCA Vets & Pets since 2005. Medicine and animals have always held a fascination for her, so what better occupation than to work with both! She loves what she does and hopes to keep working for many years to come. She believes the greatest feeling is when she can help to save a pet's life. Jennifer has a particular interest in anesthesia, and has thought of obtaining a specialty license in this field.

    In her spare time, she loves to stay busy by enjoying swimming, scuba diving, mountain climbing, camping, touring with her dance company. She has even gone sky-diving!

    Jennifer always has kitties at home, and also has fostered many of them as well. At home she currently has Desi and Jade.

  • Registered Veterinary Technician

    Amanda Meistrell, R.V.T.
    Veterinary Tech School: Foothill Community College

    Amanda knew she wanted to work with animals since at a very young age, but everyone she knew wanted her to become a human nurse. Her interest in medicine and her love for animals brought her to veterinary medicine and she became a Registered Veterinary Technician, which was a great compromise! In the future, she would love to get a Bachelor of Science degree in Veterinary Science. She enjoys interacting with all of our clients and of course helping our patients. Amanda strives for everyone to have a great experience. During her free time she likes to draw and go on hikes with Bailey, her German Shepherd mix and hang out with her two cats.

    Deanne Allen
    School: Boston Reed - Certificate in Veterinary Assisting

    Deanne has been a part of the VCA Vets & Pets Animal Hospital team since August 2013. She has been an animal lover her whole life and wanted to be a veterinarian when she was a young girl. She discovered her passion for animals as a volunteer for the Butte Humane Society in her hometown of Chico, California. As a volunteer, she was responsible for photographing new dog arrivals to the shelter. Deanne volunteered for over a year and half and had many great experiences. She finds it very rewarding to help animals using veterinary medicine or help them find their forever homes. Her favorite part of the job is being able to see all the different breeds of dogs and cats and building relationships with clients. Her future goals include working for an animal shelter as an adoption manager or with volunteers. Deanne spends her spare time enjoying going on walks with her boyfriend  and their dog Teddy. She also enjoys photography, gardening, playing video games, and traveling.


  • Veterinary Assistant

    Mythili Hari
    Veterinary Tech School: Foothill Community College
    School: University of California, Davis, B.S.

    Mythili has been with VCA Vets & Pets Animal Hospital since September 2011. She was drawn to veterinary medicine by her passion for science, medicine, and animals. She has always wanted to become a doctor and go into the medical field; however she decided to give herself a bigger challenge by helping treat animals as they cannot express their pain and feelings the same way as we do.  Mythili finds each day is a new day with different cases and challenges, as you never know what will walk through our door. Ever since she started at VCA Vets & Pets, she has realized that her destiny is to become a technician and that’s why she went to the vet tech program at Foothill College. Her future plans, after becoming a licensed and registered veterinary technician is to get her specialty in zoo medicine and internal medicine, and be involved with different veterinary technician associations and organizations. She is currently the Co-President of the Student Chapter of National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (SCNAVTA) at Foothill College and volunteers at the Palo Alto Junior Museum and Zoo. Her dream and goal one day is to work at the Disney’s Animal Kingdom for her love for Disney and animals will be fulfilled! She has a 13 year old Labrador Retriever named Sammy, 6 month DSH cat named Toulouse and 5 gold fish (yes they all have names too). She hopes to one day own a land turtle, a chinchilla, peacock, and hedgehog.

    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.
