Kennel Assistant

Joan previously worked at Lake Vet and returned when Grand Lake Vet opened in 2013. She is a San Francisco Dog Walking Academy graduate and completed four terms of school to become a registered veterinary technician.

She has worked with dogs for many years, and wanted to work with them professionally, so she sought a career in veterinary medicine.

Joan tries her best for every client and patient to have a wonderful experience. Her pets are everything to her, and she really enjoys learning about and working with the animals at Grand Lake Vet.

Joan spends her days off with her husband John and Annie and Pebbles, her standard poodles. You may see her walking her small poodle mix, Stretch (a rescue who was born here in the clinic). She has earned various titles in competitive obedience with her dogs.

We’re glad to have Joan for her down-to-earth perspective and attention to detail!
