Michelle Michelle, Licensed Veterinary Technician "I've always been connected to animals since I was two. I Decided at seven years old that helping animals was going to be part of my life purpose and have been doing it to this day. Sitting in nature and at the ocean is my bliss and the planet continues to lead me to where I am needed most to help all the animals, Domestic and wildlife. Future vision is to travel the world living my bliss and being a voice for the animals of all kinds."

Nicole Nicole, Registered Veterinary Technician. "I have been working in the veterinary field for 17 years with experience in shelter, emergency and general practice medicine. I have always had a special interest in Integrative Medicine. I am married and have 2 daughters. My animal kids include: a Pomeranian named Neva and 2 rabbits - Fireball and Chunk. In my spare time I volunteer for Girl Scouts and I enjoy reading, camping, knitting, crafting and spending time with my family."

Amanda Amanda, Registered Veterinary Technician. "From a young age I have had a natural connection to animals. It was obvious to everyone but me I should get into the veterinary field. When I finally realized that I should use my abilities to nurture and heal, I started attending Veterinary Technology school. I graduated in December of 2016. After receiving my RVT in April 2017, my intention is to further my education, specializing in pain management. When I am not in school or working at the clinic, I spend time with my English Bulldog "Yogi Berra" and my two cats "Ace" and "Abner". If I am not with them, I am with friends at the movies, or watching baseball. Laughing is my absolute favorite thing to do!"

Kaley Kaley Lucas, Kennel Assistant. "I have been interested in animals for as long as I can remember, but had never really considered working with them professionally until very recently. After working with Dr. Jyl I am thinking about going to school to become a licensed veterinary technician, and/or possibly pursuing another animal related career. I have a huge interest in animal behavior, psychology and training because it gives me a unique opportunity to improve the relationship between animals and their humans. Horses are my current interest. My personal menagerie consists of three cats, two horses and one snake. In my spare time I like to go dancing, horseback riding, studying genetics, reading, spending time with my family and learning new things in general."

Dena Dena Spring, Kennel Assistant "I’ve always shared a special connection with animals. Even at a young age I knew I wanted to be a Veterinarian. I’m currently attending school to become a Registered Veterinary Technician and will graduate in 2018. From there I plan to attend veterinary school to be come a Veterinarian. I’d like to someday open my own practice so I can follow my passion and help animals in need. I have an interest in alternative medicine and animal nutrition and would also like to start a rescue to help animals in shelters who have not been adopted. I currently have a West Highland Terrier named Mac, a Queensland Heeler/Pitbull mix named Lady and a tortoiseshell cat named Tinkerbell. In my spare time I enjoy attending concerts, working on my car or watching tv with my boyfriend."

Gerardo Gerado Garcia, Kennel Attendant/ Assistant "As a child, I wanted to be part of the Veterinary Field because of my love of animals, now as a Vet Tech Student I want to be in the field because of how demanding it can be. I am currently going to school to become a Registered Veterinary Technician, graduating in May of 2018. During my schooling, I discovered a new passion, Microbiology and Parasitology, to which are both essential to keep pets safe and healthy. In the future, I see myself working in a Diagnostic Laboratory or working in Zoonotic Disease Research. When I’m not working or at school I am kept busy by all of my pets. My mini “Zoo” consists of 3 dogs, a cat, a Catalina Macaw, a Yellow-Napped Amazon, a chinchilla, a rat, a colony of cocktails, and fresh water fish. You can say that I am a true animal lover regardless of feathers, fur, or scaled."
