Terry, Exam Room Nurse
Terry has been in the veterinary field since 2006 when she applied for a job at the veterinary hospital where she brought her own cat (she says they hired her because she could spell!)

Terry has a son, two step-children, eleven grandchildren, a cat named Z, and a desert tortoise named Mr. T.
Terry collects cookbooks and salt and pepper shakers. Her Sundays are spent cooking while watching football (Go Redskins!) and she adores visits with her grandkids and family. She graduated from Chula Vista High in 1978. She is people oriented and detail oriented and loves taking care of our clients’ furry family members. She wants people to know that she will help them make the best decisions regarding their pets and she will treat their animals as if they were her own.
Amy, Veterinary Nurse

She has a husband, Hugo, and two daughters, Kaylin & Kamryn. In her spare time, Karla enjoys reading, going to the beach, bowling, BBQ’s, and any quality time she has with her family. Even though she doesn’t have any pets at this time, she would one day love to have a Great Dane.
Sam, Veterinary Nurse
Sam has always wanted to work with animals since she was a little girl. Her pets would get sick or die and she wanted to know why so she chose this field to help out animals and make a difference. Upon graduating Montgomery High School, she attended PIMA Medical Institute and completed the Veterinary Assistant Program. Sam works hard behind the scenes in our treatment area to make sure your pets are comfortable and feel safe.

When she is chilling, she is munching on snacks and watching Netflix.
Amanda grew up in a home full of pets as her companions, so naturally she veered toward a career in veterinary medicine. She loves how rewarding the profession is, and how it always give her a sense of feeling at home.
Amanda’s family currently includes a doggie named Wera and her daughter, Mone’t. When she isn’t being a mom, she enjoys working out, surfing and pursuing artistic endeavors such as the piano, guitar and drawing.
