My name is Rhonda, I have worked here for 19 years as a veterinary assistant/technician. I have two dogs Recker and Cleo, one cat, a goffin cockatoo, and many reptiles. When I'm not working or taking care of my own animals you can find me enjoying the outdoors, or in the kitchen baking and cooking. I look forward to continuing to care for your pets.



Lead Technician/Practice Manager

Hello my name is Ronni. I've been a vet tech for 11 years and have had a passion and love for animals my whole life. I have a big crazy Pit mix named Max and a big sweet tabby cat named Ham Bone. When I'm not working I love to draw and paint, or go have fun with friends and family.

Hi! My name is Karen. I have worked in the veterinary field since 1998 and have done everything from taking care of kennels to management. I have a sweet little kitty named Dottie who I brought home from work about 15 years ago. She was found on the side of the road when she was 4 weeks old. When I'm not working I enjoy photography, crafts, and spending time with family and friends.




Hello, my name is Heidi and I have been working in the veterinary field for about two years after graduating from the Veterinary Technician Program at Pima Medical Institute in Mesa.  I have a passion for working with animals and I love getting to make a positive difference in their lives and the lives of their owners.  When I’m not at the clinic, I am active in the performing arts whether it is through dancing, acting, singing, or assisting local magician Eric Giliam.
