Our Careteam

Maria
Veterinary Technician-in-training
Although Maria had always adored animals, it wasn’t until she began her veterinary studies in college that she knew she had found her calling. Before long, she was hooked—Maria hasn’t looked back since, and is proud to now help pets of all shapes and sizes as a member of Creature Comforts Animal Hospital’s care team!

Born in California, Maria grew up here in Las Vegas and attended the College of Southern Nevada to study animal care. She joined the Creature Comforts Animal Hospital family on the recommendation of a friend, and is now training on the job to become a Veterinary Technician!

She shares her life with two rescued rabbits, Sophie and Elly; a Chihuahua mix and a Shih Tzu mix; and a trio of loveable guinea pigs named Nina, Lilly, and Lina.
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!

Originally from Arizona, Kayleigh works as a Kennel Technician here at Creature Comforts Animal Hospital and makes it her mission to treat each and every visiting pet as if they were her very own.

Deanna’s mother worked for a pet store when Deanna was growing up, and often brought home sick pets to nurse them back to health. While her mother was at work during the day, Deanna was given the responsibility of medicating them to help them make full recoveries. Those early experiences seeing animals return to their homes happy, healthy, and more affectionate ignited Deanna’s own passion for pet care!

Deanna grew up in the small town of Cornville, Arizona, and attended the PMI Medical Institute to study veterinary care. She first started with the Creature Comforts Animal Hospital family in 2006, then moved on to further develop her skills through internships and serving at other pet clinics.

In her free time, Denise enjoys swimming in her pool, exercising, and spending time with her wonderful grandchildren. She lives with an Australian shepherd mix named Astro and an orange and white tabby cat, Zsa Zsa, who loves sleeping in Denise’s bed.
Jen
Licensed Veterinary Technician
Ever since she was a little girl, Jen has tried to save every creature that crossed her path. She was always pulling creatures out of her family pool, and saved everything from stray house pets to insects. Jen has worked in the animal care field since she was 17 years old!

A Las Vegas native, Jen started her animal care career at a local clinic before attending college in southern California. After school, she worked in various practices before becoming a stay-at-home mother for several years. When she decided to rejoin the workforce, Jen came in for an interview here at Creature Comforts Animal Hospital. She’s served as the clinic’s Head Veterinary Technician since the spring of 2005!

Jen considers dentistry work one of the most important parts of her job. She finds it incredibly rewarding to spruce up a pet’s dirty mouth, and is often able to get a pet to eat again just by performing a single dental cleaning!

Jen has two children, Baylee and Brenden, as well as a pit bull named Axle and a pair of pet frogs. In her time away from the clinic, Jen enjoys riding her motorcycle, camping, and spending time with her family and pets.
Julie
Client Service Representative
Julie had worked for other veterinary clinics in various states before joining the Creature Comforts Animal Hospital team. None compared to the high-quality care and compassionate staff that she found here! Julie has served as one of the clinic’s receptionists since August of 2001.

Around the clinic, Julie loves working alongside her fellow staff members as part of a well-functioning team. She’s particularly fond of interacting with loving pet owners, and always enjoys greeting a new face. Talking with clients who own desert tortoises is a special favorite of hers!

At home, Julie lives with several pets of her own. She has a dog, Carlin, as well as a cockatiel named Ricky. The animal family is rounded out by six cats: Autumn, Maestro, Ester, Scarlet, Tiger Lilith, and Mama.
Lisa
Veterinary Technician
Lisa comes from a family of caregivers—her mother was a registered nurse, and her sister attended school to become a nurse in the neonatal intensive care unit. Lisa’s own nurturing side always tended to lean toward the animal side of the spectrum, and now she enjoys caring for pets every day as a Veterinary Technician!

Lisa’s veterinary career began in 1997, when she started working in the kennel of a local clinic. She had worked with Dr. Gorman before Creature Comforts Animal Hospital was founded, and when the hospital opened for business, Lisa was more than happy to join the team. She’s been a part of the Creature Comforts family since 2000. Medically, performing diagnostic tests is one of Lisa’s favorite parts of the job. Putting the puzzle pieces together to form a full picture isn’t just a lot of fun—it’s incredibly fulfilling. She also likes making visiting pets feel comfortable in whatever way she can. Lisa and her four young children share their home with five cats and one crazy puppy named Sammich. The cats have even started training Lisa’s one-year-old to hiss and meow!
Mike
Veterinary Technician
Mike grew up in Tucker County, West Virginia, where his mother ran a kennel and was also involved in the breeding and showing of dogs. For him, animal care is simply second nature! Now Mike serves pets every day as a Licensed Veterinary Technician here at Creature Comforts Animal Hospital.

Mike attended the Pima Medical Institute for his degree in veterinary technology. He completed his externship here at the hospital, then was hired on full-time in November of 2009. His professional interests include anesthesia, abdominal ultrasound, laparoscopy, and echocardiograms.

At home, Mike lives with a Yorkshire terrier named Booth and five uromastyx lizards: Al Capone, Lucky Luciano, Bugsy Siegel, John Gotti, and Whitey Bulger.

      We trust only Creature Comforts with our fur babies and have for 13 years. They have welcomed new members and helped us say our farewells also. I can't say enough. Good things about the WHOLE office..from the moment you walk in ..the assistance..doctors and those who are behind the doors. We usually see Dr Paul..but she was with another situation..first time seeing Dr Perry..under such a dramatic situation..I have to give a shout out to Dr. PERRY for remaining calm and providing excellent care to our Leia after getting attacked by 2 dogs. He was calm.with very .nervous parents..he explained every step and every possible steps ..the follow ups were taken cautiously ..it was comforting to have Dr Paul check in with us..I'm happy to say Dr Perry gave our Leia "The Out of the woods" and she is her happy and healthy self. If you want great care for your beloved furry family this the place to go..

      They were wonderful in taking care of my ferret Smokey. Unfortunately my cat Lil Bit had to be put down there a few days ago. They were so great in doing what they could for her and then letting me know when it was time to say goodbye instead of running up vet costs. They made saying goodbye easy possible. I will continue to use them for my pet care!

      I couldn’t see how my experience could have been better as everyone was very friendly and helpful. The staff is very knowledgeable and also has a vet that knows about rats and how to help keep them healthy and doesn’t try to nickel a dime you.
