Licensed Veterinary Technician Candidate/Shift Lead
Haley recently graduated from Penn Foster Veterinary Technician program and is planning to take the VTNE this spring! She has been working in the field since 2015 from reception to assistant to shift lead where she now heads up our nursing team helping train everyone with invaluable skills and monitoring anesthesia. Along with Chloe, she is one of our main surgery nurses. So, when you see you’re pet’s shiny teeth after a dental cleaning you can thank her good work. She also has a passion for corgis – owning 3! (with a 4th on the way) The corgis along with her cat, rabbit, hedgehog, and leopard gecko make up her household where lounging on the couch and binge-watching TV shows is the ideal night.

My name is Makenna and I am a Vet Assistant at Animal Care Center. I attended the Northwest Career and Technical Academy to receive my Veterinary Assistant Certification. I enjoy hanging out with my family, friends, being outdoors, riding my horse Huckleberry, and playing with my dogs. My favorite part about this job is seeing a wide variety of pets everyday and being able to help them!

Hello! My name is Taleah and I have been with the Animal Care Center since August of 2020. I was born and raised here in Skagit County all my life and specifically live in Concrete! Growing up, I lived on a farm with many different animals and participated for many years in the Skagit County 4-H program which gave me my love for animals and helped prepare me for the field I am in today. After graduating 4-H and High School, I attended the PIMA Medical Institute of Seattle where I attained my certification as a Certified Veterinary Assistant. After I finished attending college, I married, got a couple of dogs, cats, and Sierra my 31-year-old Quarab mare. We all love exploring the beautiful land we are surrounded by, specifically, walking along the Skagit River where we spot lots of squirrels, deer, elk, and Bald Eagles! I love being a member of the Animal Care Center team, assisting the amazing doctors, and helping all the dogs and cats that come into our care.
