Saira

Saira

Kennel Supervisor

Saira was born in the Northern California area and loves living in So Cal. She is a huge fan of the outdoors and loves to go on walks or hikes. Her dogs love that activity too; she has a red-nose pitbull, Kane, and a black lab/pitbull mix, Zeus. If Saira isn't outdoors getting exercise, she may very well be indoors at the gym or working on her kickboxing skills (Muay Thai). Perpetuating the idea that you can't judge a kickboxer from their cover, Saira loves the movie Sixteen Candles and one of her favorite bands is Mumford & Sons. She loves everything about working at APCC, especially interacting with the animals and how every day is different. When she was little, Saira wanted to be a veterinarian, so we are proud to be involved in getting her onto the path of her childhood dream!

Rita

Rita

Rita joined our hospital during the summer of '15 and has been a great addition to the hard-working kennel team. When she isn't spending time at the gym or at work, it's a good bet you'll find her spending time with her Great Dane "Pickle" or even spending extra time with one of the PRC rescue dogs that are housed here at the hospital. If she was an animal, she thinks she would be a cheetah and if she could have any super hero power, she would want to be able to fly. When she was younger, she always wanted to be a law enforcement officer when she grew up, which is probably why she says 'Cops' is her favorite TV show. Good thing for us, Rita loves working here at APCC; enjoys waking up to do something that she loves, helping all of the animals that she loves. 

Reily

Reily

Reily is one of the newest members of our staff here at APCC. Reily is, you guessed it, a So Cal native. She loves being active and spending time in the outdoors, off-roading, camping and, most importantly: riding her horse. Reily's biggest passion in life is geared toward the world of horses and equine veterinary care. As a young girl, she always wanted to be a horse vet, and that goal is right on track for her. We may not handle the care of horses as part of our standard here at APCC, but she will definitely develop many usable tools to accomplish that here at the hospital. Reily's favorite band is Blink-182 and, clearly a vampire fan, two of her favorite tv shows are True Blood and Vampire Diaries. Reily loves working with all of the animals here at the hospital and we are hoping to see great things from her!

Cassie

Cassie

Cassie is one of the newest members of our team here at APCC. She is a So Cal native who would move all the way across the globe to Australia, if she could. Cassie would want her superpower to be the ability to communicate with animals, which would really help here in the animal hospital! She has an adorable 4 month old son that she loves to spend time with while she's not at work. She recalls her first celebrity crushes being on Nick Jonas and Zac Efron. Cassie's favorite TV shows are The Walking Dead and Arrow. When she was a little girl, she wanted to grow up to be a wizard at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Cassie loves working with all of the welcoming and super nice people here at APCC and enjoys coming to work every day to see all of the cute cats and dogs. We are very excited to see where this job leads for Cassie! 

Liza

Liza

Liza is one of the newer members of our staff here at APCC. A Southern California native, if she had the chance to live anywhere in the world she would want to be in the countryside. Liza loves spending time hanging out with her family and friends, camping and being in the great outdoors. One of her biggest pet peeves is bad drivers; that may have something to do with why she would prefer to be out in the countryside to here in the OC. He first celebrity crush was Ryan Reynolds and her favorite TV show is The Office. If she could have dinner with any one famous person, she would want to sit and dine with Amy Poehler. Clearly, Liza loves to laugh...and that contagious, cheerful spirit is a great character trait which serves her well while taking care of your beloved pet! 

Lexi

If you're noticing a trend, it is true... Lexi is yet another of our SoCal natives. Her favorite bands/artists include: Sublime, Nirvana, Rebelution and Rihanna. Her interests and hobbies include (aside from music): sports and her pets. Lexi's furry (and not so furry) family members are 2 cats, a bunny and a snake. Her childhood crush has held strong to this day: Channing Tatum. Lexi is a cool customer; her biggest pet peeve is being rushed and one of her favorite things to do outside of work is to sleep. A self-described total daddy's girl, her dream job when she was little was to be a veterinarian. Lexi is excited about her job here at APCC, working with the animals and chasing her lifelong dream of working with them! 

Jasmine

Jasmine

Jasmine, we are proud to say, adds a little out-of-state flavor to our hospital, coming to us from deep in the heart of Texas (did you just do the claps from that song in your head, too?). Outside of work, Jass (as her friends call her), loves to spend time working out or modeling. With two dogs at home ('Brownie' and 'Koda'), she is excited to continue her career with animals here at our hospital. Fittingly, her favorite TV show is Criminal Minds, because if she could have one special power, she would want it to be the ability to read minds. If she could have a dinner with any famous person, her choice: Michael Jackson. he hobbies and interests include modeling and playing volleyball. Among her hidden talents: she loves to bake! Since she was little, Jasmine has always wanted to be a veterinarian. We will find out how much her love of being a part of the team here at APCC helps her along toward her dream! 

Jamie

Jamie

Jamie was born in Southern California, but she has not stayed put all of her life. Her love of the outdoors and her passion for horses has led her to live north of the border in Canada for a spell. It's not a surprise that if she could live anywhere, she would choose Montana or Oregon. Speaking of her love for the outdoors, her favorite things to do outside of work include: riding horses, snowboarding, dirt biking, barrel racing, trail riding, hiking and camping. Jamie's furry family members are 2 German Shepherd/Labs, a Pitbull/Lab mix, a Chihuahua and a Daschund. Among her hidden talents, Jamie can play piano and the drums. Two of her favorite TV shows are Sons of Anarchy and Vampire Diaries. her favorite bands include Justin Moore, Jason Miranda Lambert and Blink 182. We are excited to have Jamie as part of the team here and see where the field of veterinary medicine takes her!
