Dr. Sharon Gorman

Dr. Sharon Gorman

Owner, Veterinarian

From the time she could utter her first words as a toddler, Dr. Sharon Gorman knew she wanted to work with animals. As she grew older, she realized she would only be satisfied with a career that was challenging, fulfilling, and constantly evolving. Veterinary medicine fit the bill perfectly!

Dr. Gorman’s veterinary career began in her home state of New Jersey, where she began working as a kennel attendant during high school. She then moved to Virginia to attend both undergraduate and veterinary school. During her schooling, she served as a receptionist and Veterinary Technician at a local hospital. After earning her degree, Dr. Gorman sought out the warm weather of Las Vegas and has been here ever since.

After working in the Las Vegas area for nearly five years, Dr. Gorman decided to pursue her longtime dream of owning her very own practice and being able to set the standard of care and customer service. In late 2000, her dream became a reality when Creature Comforts Animal Hospital opened its doors for business.

Dr. Gorman’s professional interests include exotic medicine, surgery, and excellent client education. Above all, she loves working with her team to offer pet owners an incredibly high care standard for their beloved animals.

Dr. Gorman, her husband Jason, and their children Skylar, Sierra, and Cody share their home with many pets. They have five dogs—Molly, Panda Pooh, Bandit, Ivory, and Boo—as well as a pair of cats named Rose and Hokie. The family also keeps six horses: Prancer and Radar, the veterans of the group; Casper, who prefers to watch everyone from afar; Colby and Collette, who are both starting to slow down a bit; and Sonar, who Dr. Gorman rides whenever she needs to de-stress.

Aside from horseback riding, Dr. Gorman loves to scuba dive when time permits. She and her family go on a scuba trip every year, and Dr. Gorman’s oldest daughter has even become a certified diver!

Dr. Renee Hussy

Associate Veterinarian

Dr. Hussy has been obsessed with veterinary medicine ever since she was a young girl—she actually had aspirations of becoming a jockey before growing too tall by age 11! It was only a few years later, when Dr. Hussy was a mere 15 years old, that she started volunteering right here at Creature Comforts Animal Hospital. She’s been a part of the family ever since.

Dr. Hussy is a Las Vegas native, and started here at the clinic on a full-time basis during her high school years. She obtained her Bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Las Vegas, then traveled to Dublin, Ireland to study veterinary medicine at University College Dublin. Dr. Hussy continued working here at Creature Comforts Animal Hospital during summer and winter breaks, and is now a full-time Associate Veterinarian! She has special medical interests in exotic-animal medicine and physical therapy; Dr. Hussy hopes to utilize physical therapy techniques for more and more of the hospital’s patients in the coming years.

Thanks to all of her traveling between the United States and Ireland, Dr. Hussy hasn’t been able to have her own pet for quite a while; she hopes to adopt her first dog very soon! For now, she contents herself by spending time with her mother’s horse, La’mare; her father’s cat, Spooky; and Moose, her sister’s large and drool-prone Cane Corso Mastiff.

When time permits outside of work, Dr. Hussy enjoys distance running, camping and hiking throughout Nevada, California, and Utah, and traveling abroad. Her favorite locales so far have been Rome and Lagos, Portugal.

Dr. Tiffany Paul

Dr. Tiffany Paul

Associate Veterinarian

Dr. Tiffany Paul considers it an honor to be trusted with the pets of the Las Vegas area. She knows that when she’s taking care of an animal, she’s also taking care of an entire family!

Originally from Georgia, Dr. Paul attended Louisiana State University for her veterinary education and arrived in Las Vegas in 2005. She began here at Creature Comforts Animal Hospital in 2009 as a relief veterinarian, and liked it so much that she stayed on as a full-time Associate Veterinarian. Her professional interests include internal medicine and feline care; Dr. Paul believes a good cat is one of the best things in the world!

Aside from her duties here at the clinic, Dr. Paul gives her time to Noah’s Animal House, where she takes care of pets that have been a part of abusive relationships or are otherwise less fortunate. She also teaches Veterinary Technicians-in-training at the PIMA Medical Institute.
At home, Dr. Paul and her husband have many pets, including several dogs, a number of cats, and three birds.

Dr. Kimberly Franco

Dr. Kimberly Franco

Associate Veterinarian

No matter what type of hospital you work in, the main focus is always on helping your patients. This is why Dr. Kimberly Franco joined the staff at Creature Comforts Animal Hospital as an associate veterinarian; she wanted to be a part of a team that focused on quality patient care for animals!

Dr. Kimberly was born and raised in Las Vegas, NV, and developed a love of animals at a young age. Her fondest memories of pets she owned include a puppy named Jasmine, who she bottle-fed as puppy and watched grow into a big, strong, obedient dog. She also owned a black bunny that she was responsible for cleaning up after. These experiences showed her that when animals are loved and cared for, they can turn into the best and most loyal companions. They would also eventually help push her into the exciting world of veterinary medicine.

Dr. Kimberly graduated from the University of Nevada Las Vegas with a bachelor’s degree in Biology. She then completed her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at Colorado State University. Now that she had the academic acumen to match her immense love for animals, she was able to help as many of them as possible.

Performing soft tissue surgery is one of Dr. Kimberly’s favorite parts of her occupation, since it’s a unique process that can ultimately help save an animal’s life. She is also fascinated by dentistry as it relates to animals, since it can extend a pet’s quality of life.

When she’s got some free time, Dr. Kimberly enjoys going on hikes. Otherwise, you can find her at home hanging out with her fiance (she’s recently engaged) and her 3 beloved dogs – a Rottweiler and 2 chihuahuas. Each one of her pets has its own lovable, unique trait that brings Dr. Kimberly joy!

Dr. Gibson

Dr. Katie Gibson


Growing up in Dr. Gibson’s family, training hawks, rehabbing injured wildlife, and being surrounded by dogs was just part of everyday life. However, it was when she struggled to find a veterinarian who knew what a sugar glider was—let alone how to treat it—that she decided that she needed to become a veterinarian.

Dr. Gibson spent her childhood in New Jersey and then moved to North Carolina as a teenager. She went to the University of North Carolina at Asheville for her undergraduate work in biology, and worked as a veterinary assistant throughout college and while also running cross-country and track. She moved to Raleigh to complete her veterinary training at North Carolina State College of Veterinary Medicine and graduated in 2006. Then, Dr. Gibson completed additional training doing a rotating small-animal internship at Carolina Veterinary Specialists, where she developed her love for emergency medicine. She was eager to get back to Asheville after school and worked there for eight years as an emergency veterinarian. Dr. Gibson then moved to Las Vegas to start a new adventure and has been here for three years. She is very happy to now call Creature Comforts Animal Hospital home!

Dr. Gibson’s favorite things are emergency medicine, surgery, ultrasound, and exotic animal medicine. She loves the variety of cases that she sees at Creature Comforts, and takes great pride in treating all pets like they are her own.

Dr. Gibson spends most of her time off outdoors. She loves adventure and spends her time hiking, rock climbing, paddle-boarding, and looking for something new to try. Her goal in life is to tire out Aries, her very energetic Australian Shepherd puppy. She also has a sweet old Chow mix named Gabby, as well as Meesha kitty, who is a pretty pretty princess. Her pets are her children, and she’ll treat your pet the same!
