Scarlett – Vet Assistant
October 23rd, 2023 by Justin Vandeberghe
Where did you grow up?
I grew up in southern California in a small horse town with my family. We had pgs, goats, horses, dogs and lots of other fun animals. This is where I found my passion for veterinary medicine.
What pets do you have?
I have a German Shepherd named Gator. He is a very goofy and sweet boy that I love with my whole heart. He is friendly with everyone he meets and lves playing fetch any chance we get.
What do you do in your free time?
In my free time I enjoy hiking with Gator, finding lakes for him to swim in and going to my parents’ house to hang out with my family. Anything outdoors is right up my alley.
I was previously pursuing a degree in Animal Science with an emphasis in pre-veterinary medicine. Since then I have decided to go a different route and decided on diagnostic sonography. I still have a huge passion for animals and will thoroughly enjoy my time here while in school.
Role at CCAC?
My role here at Cherished Companions is a veterinary assistant.
Greatest thing about working with animals?
I love working with animals because it gives me a chance to connect with the and help with whatever they need. They exude nothing but love (most of the time) so I enjoy being able to return that favor to them.
Favorite compliment from a customer?
My favorite compliment from a customer was when I helped a couple give insulin to their diabetic dog. I ended up growing a close bond with them and received a card talking about how grateful they are for my help.
