Sassy
Clinic Supervisor

sassy"I came to live at Adobe 8 yrs ago when my previous owner was unable to facilitate my health needs. I have a chronically inflamed bladder as well as very bad hips! The staff at Adobe was very kind to take me in as their "Clinic Supervisor."

My days consist of cat naps on my bed located on Dr. Aimee Rodden's desk as well as making the rounds in the clinic. The boarding staff provides me with breakfast and dinner as well as my medications. I enjoy the attention and care that I get everyday at Adobe!"

Dana K.
Large Animal Technician, Certified Veterinary Technician

dana_ksmall""I graduated from the Pima Community College Veterinary Technician Program in 2008, and received my certification the following year. Born and raised in Tucson. My son is a bull rider. I am very proud of him as he has been the state champion numerous times. He is currently in high school rodeo.

I have multiple cattle that my son practices on: Wolfy, Nitro, Zeus, Presley, Holy Shaggo and the newest Paint it Black. I also have 4 quarter horses: Albany, Scooter, Pistol and Rocky. A goat named Raven, and can’t forget my dogs. My desire as a veterinary technician was to work with livestock, which I have the opportunity to do everyday now. When I was in school we drove by Adobe and I told my husband, my goal is to work there one day and here I am, been here for 8+ years."



Darci
Small Animal Technician, Certified Veterinary Technician

darcismall"As a graduate from the Pima Community College Veterinary Technology Program in 2006 I desired to work at a clinic that sees a diversity of animals. I enjoy working with cats and dogs, but it’s so exciting to work with horses, goats, and pigs as well! Shortly after graduating from PCC with an associate in Veterinary Technology, I passed the State and National board exams giving me the title of a Certified Veterinary Technician. I am a veterinary technician because I love animals and enjoy teaching people how to take care of their pets, so they can live long, healthy, and happy lives.

In 1999, I moved here with my family from St. Louis, MO after my Dad retired. Today, you’ll find me spending time with my daughters Claire (born March 2013) and Samantha (born November 2015), my husband, Greg, as well as my wonderful pets: Ruby (7yr old Miniature Schnauzer), Rocco (6yr old Boston Terrier/Pug mix), Sylvia (8yr old brown tabby cat), Lafawnduh (2yr black DSH), as well as Ceil and Louis, my 25yr old Russian tortoises. When I am not at work I am camping, hiking, playing sports (especially basketball or golf), or traveling."

Kathy
Client Care Coordinator

kathy“I was born in Lompoc, California and lived there for 2 years before my family was relocated to Tucson. After high school, I attended Pima Community College to take classes in Fire Science and Emergency Medical Technician. I was hired in 1994 with the City of Tucson Fire Department and am still currently employed as a full time firefighter/EMT. I am nearing 22 years of employment with Tucson Fire and will be retiring within the next few years. I have 4 rescue dogs: Jack a German Pointer mix, Gracie a Cairn Terrier, Bailey a Dachshund/Yorkie mix and Lexie a Chihuahua. In my spare time I enjoy working out, walking the dogs, and I love to cook. As I am nearing retirement with the Tucson Fire Department I thought I would look for a part time position that was completely different than anything I had ever done before. My position as Adobe is a perfect fit for me. I enjoy the interaction with the people I meet on a daily basis as well as their pets. The people at Adobe are a great group to work with, they are energetic and fun, caring and compassionate.”

“I was born in Waukegan, Illinois, but my Navy family moved to San Diego when I was 2 months old. I was raised all over the country because my family was in the Navy. As an adult I started college in Hawaii and soon moved to Oklahoma where I attended the University of Oklahoma. Eventually I moved to Florida where I met my husband. I have a B.S. in Environmental design and a Masters in Regional and City Planning. I have one dog named Kiki who is a 10.5 month old Queensland Heeler Mix. For hobbies I enjoy playing tennis, swimming, traveling and of course playing with my dog Kiki in the park.

I entered the veterinary field a few years ago in Virginia as a career change from the government and corporate world jobs. My love of animals has always been strong and I finally decided it was time to do something in my life I truly enjoyed. Adobe gives me the opportunity to be a part of a caring, compassionate team taking care of the companions that make all of our lives special.”
