Hi, my name is Rachel and I have worked in the veterinary field for less than a year. Growing up around animals, big and small, I knew I wanted to be in this profession. I recently graduated with a Bachelors in Biology and I hope to continue my education in Veterinary Medicine to become a DVM and be able to advocate for patients who don’t have a voice. I have six dogs, one black lab and five hounds. Being able to watch them be passionate about their work as trackers is one of my favorite things to see.
Celeste arrived at Mesa Vista a little more than a year ago. She is honored to be a part of this compassionate and professional team. She loves animals and the people who care for them.
Tamara got into veterinary medicine in 2009 and hasn’t looked back. She has been working at Mesa Vista since 2015 and has fully enjoyed the variety of animals she gets to work with. Tamara loves cleaning dirty pet ears and doing dentals. She has 1 birth baby and 1 fur baby. When Tamara isn’t working or enjoying time with her son, she likes to attend live music shows and travel to new places.
Tabitha has worked in the veterinary field for about 9 years collectively. Working with animals is her passion and she loves what she gets to do every day. One of the greatest feelings is being able to speak the animal language with them when they aren’t feeling well or just going in for routine care.
