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 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!

She’s thrilled to launch her journey in veterinary medicine right here at Creature Comforts Animal Hospital.

Megan
Client Services Representative, Veterinary Assistant
When Megan’s beloved Basset Hound, Miss Brandy, was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer, she struggled to find a veterinarian who would listen to her and agree to life-saving surgery. When she finally found someone who would take the case, it made a permanent impression. After working in business for more than 20 years, Megan decided to return to school to study veterinary medicine. She wanted to help other pets stay happy and healthy, too!

For her, working in veterinary medicine was simply a natural fit! Now, Cait gets to better the lives of pets and their human family members every day as a member of Creature Comforts Animal Hospital’s talented care team.

Cait was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona and was only 16 years old when she first started volunteering in animal clinics during her summers off from school.

Veterinary Assistant
Ally was born and raised in Brazil, where her mother bred English cocker spaniels. Ally was always around to help the dogs when they weren’t feeling well, and she developed a natural inclination for animal care early on in life. Ever since she can remember, Ally has wanted to serve pets and their owners as a veterinary professional!

Ally’s animal-care journey began in her teenage years, when she started helping the house-call veterinarian that her mother used in Brazil.

Now, she’s a Veterinary Assistant with the Creature Comforts Animal Hospital team and couldn’t be happier!

An animal-lover through and through, Ally has quite the menagerie of pets at home. She lives with a young Neapolitan Mastiff, a Labrador mix, and an American bulldog.

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.

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!

      I've been to Creature Comforts a few times, and I finally have to write a review. These people always come through when I need them. It doesn't seem to matter what the issue is, or how busy they are, they always find a way to get my dog looked at and treated.

      Today I went to another animal hospital that wasn't any help at all, but we went to Creature Comforts immediately afterward and they got us in right away.

      The staff and doctors genuinely care about you and your pet, and they go out of their way to help. Thank you for everything.

      I can't say enough good things about this facility. My fur face absolutely loves boarding here. I have a house full of "exotics". Dr Gorman is one of the best in the city for rat care. The ladies at the front desk are great and are very empathetic when it is time to help our loved ones over the rainbow bridge.
