From the moment you walk in the door – whether it’s gathering essential information about your visit, assisting Dr Johnson or Dr Boutilier with surgical procedures, or refilling a prescription – our friendly and helpful staff is always striving to make your visit a good one.
Theresa is a Registered Veterinary Technician and started working with us in 2001 after receiving a degree in Biological Science. She is a native Californian and has lived in Petaluma since the mid ’90s. Theresa has two pets: Wally Pierre (pictured) and Gigi. She has wanted to work in the medical field since childhood and she’s the most senior member of our staff.
Miya is also a long time northern Californian, growing up in San Rafael before relocating to Petaluma. She started working with animals well over a decade ago and brings this love of animals with her to WSVC! Miya has two cats – Aiko and Sylvester – and a dog – Bubba – and enjoys every kind of outdoor activity imaginable.
Noelle grew up in Windsor and has been in Sonoma County the majority of her life. She started with us in August of 2014 and is enrolled in the Vet Tech online program at Penn Foster College. Noelle has a Rottweiler (Rosco), a cat name Pepe Le Pew, and five white Australian Tree Frogs (Ironhide, Bumblebee, Mudflap, Optimus, and Jazz). She enjoys spending time camping and boating.
Ariel has been living in Petaluma her whole life and started with us in December of 2014. Her interest in the animal medical field stemmed from working at pet daycare facilities, and she now has a desire to get her RVT. There are lots of animals nearby: Joey, Boris, Nyoka, and a brood of chickens. She’s a rollerblader and follows the San Jose Sharks.
Glenys grew up in Sonoma County and started her time at WSVC in March of 2016. Her veterinary career began in 1993 and has filled several roles during that time. She has been working toward her RVT diligently and should be receiving it quite soon! She has three cats (Levi, Orion, and Pancake) and two horses (Leah and Bob). If all of that leaves any spare time, she spends it with her son.
Michelle began her time with WSVC in May of 2016 and has been in and around Petaluma since 2013. Earlier in 2016 she started at the SRJC Vet Tech program and is planning on continuing through to receive her RVT. She has two cats named after “Lost” characters: Penelope and Desmond. Though originally from the East Coast she enjoys hiking in Sonoma County’s beautiful parks and collecting beach glass along the coastline. She also enjoys sculpture, needlework and other forms of art, and also collects antique health and anatomy books.
