Growing up in San Diego, Tiffany spent countless hours sitting by the ocean, listening to the waves crash and taking long walks on the beach.

As a member of our front desk team, Tiffany enjoys greeting our clients and welcoming their animal friends.

By the age of seven, while many kids his age were still way too young to even think about their future careers, TJ already knew he wanted to work with animals. He’d spend every spare moment watching Animal Planet and reading dog breed books over and over again. His family even referred to him as the animal whisperer. As a veterinary technician, TJ has been able to make his lifelong dream a reality!
Daniel has always had a passion for medicine and helping others. While he initially set out to pursue a career as a nurse, he quickly came to the realization that human medicine wasn’t quite the right fit for him. Initially terrified of animals thanks to a childhood encounter with an aggressive dog, Daniel overcame his fear, transitioned to vet med and has never looked back. Even if it’s something as simple as administering a vaccine, impacting the lives of animals is something Daniel takes great pride in.
People have their own personal reasons for entering the veterinary world.

Chris Wham was born in the small river town of Chester, IL and grew up across the river in St. Charles, MO. The the oldest of 5 kids, Chris never really sought out the veterinary industry per se.

Kazzi grew up surrounded by animals – from dogs and cats to birds, iguanas, ferrets and sugar gliders. With each relationship, her love and passion for animal care grew stronger and she knew in her heart that she wanted to do whatever she could to help preserve the relationship from human to furry companion. It came as no surprise, then, that working with animals would ultimately become her career.
Marisa has always had tremendous compassion for animals. When she landed her first job in the veterinary industry, she was under the impression that it would be all hugs and kisses from puppies and kittens. As her journey continued, however, she discovered something much deeper – that just like humans, animals have emotions and intimacy needs. Being able to help these incredible souls has become her life’s ambition.
