Veterinary Assistant

Mikaela

Born and raised in Spokane, I grew up loving animals and knew I wanted to end up in vet med. I took a veterinary assisting course in high school and began my official veterinary journey in 2016 when I became an assistant. I have been an assistant for close to 5 years now and plan on obtaining my veterinary technician license in the near future. Although I do not currently own pets, I have worked with many species and spent a couple years in emergency medicine. I am very passionate about client education and love helping pet owners learn new things about their pet’s care. I also have an interest in dentistry and animal nutrition and plan on specializing in both once I’ve gotten my technician license.

At home, I enjoy puzzles, cooking, movies, and spending time with my 2 kids. My boyfriend and I enjoy being outdoors and staying active as much as we can. 

I joined SouthCare in August 2020 and I am excited to grow in my career as I continue to learn along side an amazing team!
