Tiffany

Tiffany

Licensed Veterinary Technician

Tiffany has been a pet owner her entire life, and has always felt a close kinship with the earth’s creatures. The fact that her grandmother kept everything from cats and birds to rabbits and turtles only deepened her passion—for Tiffany, veterinary medicine was the only career path out there! She’s been working as a veterinary professional since she was only 16 years old, and she’s proud to continue her journey in animal medicine here at Critter Care Animal Hospital.

Tiffany is a native of Henderson, Nevada and was still in high school when she first started as a dog-walker for a local kennel. She attended the PIMA Medical Institute to earn her veterinary credentials, graduating as a Licensed Veterinary Technician, before launching her career as an animal-care professional. Tiffany joined the Critter Care Animal Hospital family in May of 2017 and couldn’t be happier—she’s especially fond of helping with surgeries and performing foreign-body removals. Her favorite part of the job, though, is watching pets mature over time and getting to know their loving owners.

At home, Tiffany and her girlfriend live with multiple pets of their own. They have four dogs—Agnes the French bulldog; a spoiled Chow mix named Lilly; and two Cavalier King Charles spaniels who go by Tucker and Piper—as well as three cats. Tiffany even belongs to French bulldog and Cavalier King Charles spaniel meet-up organizations, and loves getting together with other breed owners multiple times a year!

Jonathan

Melissa

Treatment Manager

Melissa’s passion for animal care started when she was six years old and saved aluminum cans to help purchase her first horse, Thunder. Her dream only grew from there. For Melissa, working hands-on with the earth’s creatures to help them live happier, healthier lives is the only career path that makes sense! She’s proud to serve as the Treatment Manager here at Creature Comforts Animal Hospital.

Melissa is a Las Vegas native and earned her degree in animal science from Colorado State University before returning to her home state to work as a Veterinary Technician. After seven years helping pets firsthand as a Tech, she entered academia and began working in a Veterinary Nursing and Technology program. Melissa earned her Master’s degree in educational leadership from the University of Las Vegas in 2008, and became the Veterinary Clinic Manager at the university the following year. After more than 15 years working in veterinary nursing and technology education, Melissa decided to transition back to small-animal care and joined the team here at Creature Comforts Animal Hospital in October of 2020. The rest is history!

Melissa’s passion within veterinary medicine is client education. She considers it a privilege to serve as an advocate and a voice for her patients, and she loves helping her patients and fellow team members to better understand the “whys” and “hows” behind treatments, procedures, and care techniques.

In her spare time, Melissa likes baking, making custom gift baskets, spending quality time with her family, and caring for her horses at the barn. Along with her husband, David, and their beautiful daughter, Gabriella, Melissa shares her life with four dogs—a Border Collie mix named Cavalry, two Great Danes who go by Andi and Panzer, and a French Bulldog named Aria—as well as a scarlet macaw, Sawzall, and a variety of Koi fish in their pond. She also owns two horses: Star, a purebred Arabian Gelding, and a half-Arabian Mare named April. Melissa frequently shows Arabian horses and has earned multiple national top-ten awards in Arabian and half-Arabian carriage pleasure driving!

Brandy

Brandy

Client Services Representative Supervisor

For her, helping the earth’s creatures simply came naturally! Now, Brandy gets to do that professionally—she’s the Customer Service Representative Supervisor here at Creature Comforts Animal Hospital.

Brandy moved to Las Vegas after meeting her husband, and joined the Creature Comforts Animal Hospital family in 2018. She loves to meet the pet owners who visit the hospital, as well as their adorable animal companions. Brandy also likes learning something new on an almost daily basis.

Natalie

Natalie

Licensed Veterinary Technician

Natalie’s first dog, Mesha, was given to her at the age of four. Ever since, she’s wanted to do everything in her power to help all of the animals she possibly could. Natalie has always known she wanted to become a veterinary professional—now, she’s a Licensed Veterinary Technician!

Natalie is originally from Utah and moved to Las Vegas with her family during her final year of high school. After graduation, she attended the PIMA Medical Institute to study veterinary technology. It wasn’t long after that when her veterinary career started, and she’s been in the field ever since.

After a year’s break from the industry, Natalie returned to the animal-care world here at Creature Comforts Animal Hospital in 2020. She couldn’t be happier with her choice! Natalie likes X-ray and ultrasound diagnostic work, and she’s also fond of working with reptile pets. Most of all, she loves to meet passionate pet owners on a daily basis.

When she’s not at work, Natalie likes hiking and fishing in the great outdoors, and she’s also fond of traveling. She has two pets: Sasuke the senior cat, a brown tabby cat named Yetti, and a Miniature Schnauzer named Trinity Ann who has already proven to be a great travel companion.

Evelin

Evelin

Manager

Furry or non-furry – Evelin loves them all! Having worked in customer service for more than two decades, she has certainly honed her skills at helping others, and this is obvious in her role as Creature Comforts’ beloved Practice Manager. Educating people on the products and services that best fit their pets’ needs brings a sense of joy and fulfillment to her heart!

Even as a teenager, Evelin always enjoyed working. A wise mentor once told her that in order to succeed, one must create a plan to accomplish things and then put them into motion. Over the years, in her various roles, Evelin applied that advice by becoming a master at whatever it was she was tasked with. From there, she would share her knowledge with others. This naturally led her into the management field. Professionally, Evelin lists communication as the secret to her career success.

A true animal lover, Evelin has never viewed her dogs as pets, but rather her children. She rescued her current kiddo, Mojo – a Siberian Husky – when he was two years old. At the time, he weighed just 24 pounds. Determined to give him a better life, Evelin was able to get him up to 70 pounds in about 60 days.

Over the years, Mojo has repaid his fur-mommy by also saving her life on more than one occasion. As an asthma sufferer, Evelin has experienced a few medical emergencies during the night. Each time, sensing something was wrong, Mojo sought help and alerted someone else in the household to call 9-1-1. Not surprisingly, the two share an unbreakable bond.

Aside from working with the clients, patients and staff of Creature Comforts – and, of course, spending time with Mojo – Evelin enjoys sketching, painting and crafting. She also plays volleyball, both recreationally as well as competitively, and looks forward every year to going all out for her favorite holiday, Christmas.

She then worked at several other clinics on the west part of town before finding her way back to her roots. In her role as Veterinary Assistant, Erin enjoys developing relationships with animals and their owners. She has a special interest in radiology and ultrasound.

Erin had a yellow lab named Harlow who was her best friend and adventure partner for 14 years. She was her protector, her comfort, her shadow and her secret keeper. To this day, Erin is eternally grateful to have been able to share her life with such an amazing soul.

Born and raised in Las Vegas to Guatemalan parents, Jen was raised in a pretty small family – and that’s where her adorable Shih Tzu dog comes into the picture! Not only is her dog the ultimate companion, he is a source of her happiness and has also inspired her to pursue her dreams in life. Simply feeding, nurturing and walking him gives her a deeper appreciation of animals as a pet-owner, and that helps her relate to animals at the clinic.

In her free time, Jen loves to cook Guatemalan food, play with her dog and travel. One of her favorite traveling memories was going to Utah and enjoying all that nature has to offer, and she looks forward to traveling to more destinations in the future.

Licensed Veterinary Technician

As a licensed veterinary technician at Creature Comforts Animal Hospital, “Sam” knows just how important these adorable creatures are to their families. She does everything in her power to help solve their issues so they can go back home to their beloved families!

Sam’s passion for her field first kicked in when her first dog, Pasha, became ill. She didn’t know anything about veterinary medicine at the time, so she took her dog to a nearby veterinarian. The vet was able to diagnose the problem and heal Pasha with an array of medications and treatments, and process that fascinated Sam.

It was at that moment she decided to not feel helpless when it came to helping animals, and be able to handle any future issues that came her pet’s way. The same preventative measures that she took for her beloved dog Pasha are the measures she wants to take for the pets of her clients at Creature Comforts Animal Hospital.

Jamie

Jamie

Veterinary Assistant

Growing up in Fairfax, VA, Jamie spent a great deal of time hiking and camping in the Shenandoah Mountains. It was that frequent exposure to nature that cultivated her love for exploring the outdoors, and naturally, her love for seeking out the critters that were close by. Between the many dogs she and her family fostered and her beloved pet snake, Tangy, Jamie developed a life-long interest and love for animals. It came as no surprise, then, that she would ultimately end up in the veterinary field.

Prior to entering the animal medicine realm, Jamie held a variety of administrative positions in the food service industry. When she decided to take a leap of faith and change her career path, she knew without a doubt she’d made the right choice. As a Veterinary Assistant here at Creature Comforts, Jamie is honored to play an important role in ensuring that each and every one of our patients receive the best possible care.

Jamie’s immediate family consists of her mother, whom she says is her greatest support and her very best friend. While living with her, the two adopted a Border collie mix named Solo, after Han Solo from Star Wars. Solo is a goober who likes to pretend that he is a cat, while he lounges in the kitchen window, gazing outside and cleaning himself religiously.

In addition to her love of animals, Jamie also has a deep passion for the arts. If she’s not painting or drawing, then she’s likely looking for a new cuisine or restaurant to try. Aside from making art and finding hidden food gems, she enjoys spending quality time with her partner, exercising, or exploring the outdoors.
