DVM: Dr. Amy Andrich-Card
Dr. Amy Andrich-Card is originally from Tucson, Arizona but has called southern California home for years. During the end of high school here in the local area, she began employment as a veterinary assistant, and continued to do so during her undergraduate course work. Eventually she graduated with her Bachelors of Science degree in Biology from California State San Bernardino. Dr. Card then continued her education to follow her heart into Veterinary medicine which led her to attend veterinary school at Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, California.
After graduation in 2010, she worked mobile large animal practice, relief and part-time emergency medicine, and busy small animal practices in the Temecula and Menifee areas. These experiences and love for veterinary medicine ultimately encouraged her to open her own practice where she could foster a warm, compassionate environment dedicated to high quality veterinary care. Although she loves all aspects of veterinary medicine, she has a special interest in dentistry and internal medicine. If you can’t find Dr. Card at her office, she is likely spending time with her “two” and “four-legged” family she shares with her husband; and if it’s summertime, there’s a good chance she’s at the river skiing!
Dr. Melanie Verreault
Dr. Melanie Verreault has lived in California for seventeen years but she is from Connecticut originally and still considers herself an "East Coaster" at heart. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Rhode Island in 1997 and her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Ross University in 2002. Coincidentally, or perhaps not, 2002 was also the year Dr. Verreault first met Dr. Card and Nicole when they all worked together at another practice.
Dr. Verreault shares her home with her husband, Craig, as well as their dogs, cat, and a rotating cast of fish. In her spare time, Dr. Verreault enjoys trips up to the June Lake/ Mammoth area with hubby and the pups, and runs 5k and occasional half marathon races. Dr. Verreault and her husband enjoy craft beer and have been amateur home brewers for several years.
Kaylie Burger: Technician, RVT
Kaylie has been in the field since she was old enough to be a volunteer and her dedication and hard work ultimately earned her a job. Through the years Kaylie has gained valuable hands-on experience that she took to the next level as she completed course work to earn her RVT (registered veterinary technician) license. She now has years of emergency/critical care, and general practice experience. Couple that with her compassion for animals and work ethic, it is clear that she is an amazing asset to not just our team but all the animals and clients that cross her path. When not at work, Kaylie can be found spending time with family, her dogs, and commonly in the summer, at the river.
Technician: Krista Dunlop
Krista Dunlop, LVT brings 15 years of technician/animal handling skills to lead our team. Early in her career she had planned to go on to veterinary school, but quickly fell in love with the “hands on” aspect of being a technician. She has a backing in general medicine, emergency/critical care medicine, wildlife rehabilitation, and even exotics. Her compassion for animals and veterinary medicine is evident in all that she does, making her a great asset to our patients, clients, and of course our team. When not at the clinic, you can find her offering her services elsewhere, such as emergency shifts, wildlife projects, or hanging out at home with her fur kids.
Technician: Sara Harlan, RVT
We met Sara as she was completing hours/coursework to obtain her RVT (registered veterinary technician) license. The care in her work and work ethic were quickly noted and we were fortunate enough to have her agree to come on board. She continued with her education and has now accomplished her goal of becoming an RVT. She is warm and caring, and continues to further her knowledge, making her a valuable member of our team. When not at work, Sara can be found spending time with family or on some amazing new adventure, such as hiking or even sky diving.
Technician: Lea DiGiovanni
Lea volunteered with us while she was working through a RVT (registered veterinary technician) program. She held a position at another location but still found time to get her hours completed. Luckily, the timing was right, as we needed more help and Lea was looking for a new position, and we were happy to welcome her to the team. She has years of animal handling and rescue experience, wonderful attributes to bring to our team. When not at work, she can be found spending time with her family, pets, or working to help rescue animals.
Receptionist: Nicole Daum
Nicole comes to us with years of experience in not only veterinary medicine but many aspects of customer service. Her experience as well as her warm personality shine through when greeting all of our clientele. She has a special place in her heart for all our fur creatures and somehow remembers so much about them as well as their human counterparts. When not at work, Nicole loves to travel but those plans are sometimes foiled by her own gaggle of pets at home.
Receptionist: Stephanie Negron
Stephanie has been a veterinary receptionist for years, bringing us lots of experience. She is a dedicated employee that always strives for the best. She loves many aspects of veterinary medicine, even beyond reception. When not at work, Stephanie is quite the cook, and avid baker, often making us sweet treats. She tends to spend much of her time off at home as her and her husband have a quite a few animals that keep them busy.
Receptionist: Teryn Bronson
Teryn has years of experience as a veterinary receptionist and hospital manager. She is compassionate and organized, a combination that makes her a fabulous addition to our team. We were fortunate enough to find Teryn just as she had decided to go back to work after welcoming two children. And when not working, Teryn can be found at home with those kiddos as well as her pets, or off on a family adventure.
