Each month we will introduce you to a staff member allowing you to get to know the people who care for your pets.
Amber – Receptionist
Amber, a true Las Vegas native, worked for LMAH in 2007, left our hospital to work on the people side of medicine. We lured her back in 2011 to the animal world and has been a steady rock in reception ever since. You might notice Amber always has a smile on her face whether she is talking to you in person or on the phone. Amber has a household that includes her husband, daughter, 2 dogs Pepita and Estrella, and a bird name Jupiter.
When we asked Amber the following questions she said:
If you had one box for all your stuff, what would you put in it?
Her daughters baby book and family photos

Tristan – Veterinary Assistant
Tristan started at Lone Mountain Animal Hospital as a kennel attendant in 2008, he moved to treatment a few years later and has become an even more integral part of our care team. He has quite the sense of humor, which he won a certificate and crown for in 2015 as he was voted most humorous by the staff!
When Tristan was asked the following questions he answered:

Ain’t nobody got no time for that, donate it all to charity!

Jennifer has lived in Utah and Idaho, but now calls Las Vegas her home. She shares that home with her husband, 2 dogs and her Iguana named Elliot. Jen joined our staff in 2013 and has a great love for taking care of the animals. Her favorite past time is hanging out her her hubby and little four legged family members. We asked Jen what a couple of her pet peeves are and she told us she really did not like bad drivers (she may find a few in Las Vegas) and people who interrupt.
We also asked Jennifer the following questions:

Michelle – Reception

In 2014 Michelle came back into the LMAH family and we are so happy to have her in the reception area with her great smile to greet every client and pet that comes in the door. Michelle still loves her family time and that’s why her favorite thing to do when not at work – spend time with her kids and hubby.

Caren – Licensed Veterinary Technician
Caren is originally from California and shares her home with her 2 corgi’s, one tortoise, one hamster and one fish. She attended CSN (College of Southern Nevada) – veterinary technician program where she graduated with honors, just as she did in high school. Caren was originally hired at our sister hospital Craig Road Animal Hospital, but when we needed help she volunteered to join our staff. Caren loves hanging out with her family and enjoys drawing, puzzles, movies and roller coasters.
Caren really does not like people who text and drive, so make sure you follow the road rules around her, although she no longer drivers her first car which was a 95 Pontiac Sunfire. If she finds out you are headed to Australia she may try to tag along, so watch your bags.
When we asked Caren two very important questions she answered as follows:
If you had just one box for all your possessions what would you put in it? cell phone, laptop, photo albums, puzzles (she did say she likes to do puzzles) and favorite horse models.
If you had 50 million dollars I would: Travel the world, buy a house, horses and exotic animals.
