Dr. Sharon Chancellor, DVM

Pets have always held a special place in my heart. I’ve been raised around animals my entire life and consider each of them to be an important part of my family. My family share these values, my Mom even tolerated a snake that I found and brought home when I was a kid! ☺ I’ll especially remember my vet school, Pit rescue, Bailey Boo. Bailey was an awesome dog and had a patient temperament.

As Vet Students, we could always count on Bailey to ‘volunteer’ for our rotations. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been interested in knowing everything I could about animals, so learning to care for them is just in my blood. Even as a veterinarian, I still love learning new things about pet care every day. I also value my relationship with each pet owner! While examining my patient, I can really identify with the concerns of my pet owner. I appreciate how they feel and treat their pet as if they were my own.

I’m thrilled to be part of the Pawsh Place! I love being a part of a team that practices up to date, modern medicine and also provides such excellent client care service! Pawsh has a warm and friendly environment and is a perfect fit for me. On my time off, I enjoy sewing. I’m also a huuuge Star Wars Geek, Disney Fanatic and a big Marvel & DC Fan! Oh, and did I mention that I’m a Walking Dead Faithful… Never miss an episode!! (Happy Trails, looking forward to meeting you and your fur-family soon!)


Tiffany Mestas

Registered Veterinary Technician

Hi my name is Tiffany! I’m a Registered Veterinary Technician at Pawsh Place and have been in the veterinary medicine industry for over 12 years. I have worked in multiple specialty and emergency clinics throughout my veterinary history including the Small Animal Nursing Department at UC Davis.

When I am not at Pawsh, I enjoy spending time with my family, dogs, cats and horses. I regularly compete in competitions and horse shows, while also giving riding lessons. One of my greatest passions includes the Spay and Neuter Clinic that I began in July of 2016 for feral cats throughout Solano County. In just one year we have successfully spayed and neutered 1,017 cats in our community and look forward to these numbers growing in the future.

I love working for Pawsh because of how community driven the entire organization is and the helpful and supportive environment that has been created by each staff member. I look forward to coming to work each day and helping you with any and all pet care needs.


Caitlin Arie-Donch

Registered Veterinary Technician

Hi, my name is Caitlin and I am a registered veterinary technician at Pawsh Place. I received my Associates Degree in veterinary technology from Cosumnes River College and got my RVT license in April of 2017. I have always loved animals. I grew up with 2 dogs, a guinea pig and an iguana, but it was not until I was in middle school and started volunteering at the Marin Humane Society that I knew I wanted to work with animals. I looked at all the different animal careers and decided I wanted to be a vet tech. I love being able to help animals and being able to send them home better than when they came in. Earlier this year I got to volunteer at a spay and neuter clinic in Mexico helping Mexican citizens spay and neuter their dogs and cats at no cost to them to help reduce the population of cats and dogs. It was a great learning experience for me.

In my spare time I enjoy reading, hanging out with friends and my boyfriend. I love how everyone is so passionate about their jobs at Pawsh and truly loves animals. We are a great team and everyone works together to help each other and the patients out. As one of the newer members to the Pawsh family I look forward to getting to know everyone better and growing as a vet tech.

Hi! My name is Marisa and I’m a veterinary assistant here at Pawsh. I completed the Veterinary Technology program at Carrington College, have been working as a vet assistant for the last 3 years and am now working toward becoming an RVT. Eventually I plan on going back to school to specialize as a Surgical Technician… I love anesthesia, how it works, and that it is something you can never learn enough of. Being able to be with my patient before, during, and throughout recovery is something that is very rewarding to me. I am a mother of 2; Mia who is 8 and Lucas who is 2. We enjoy all kinds of adventures, bbqing with friends, camping in the summer, movies, or hanging out at home and working on our dream one project at a time. I’ve known since before I can remember that I wanted to work with animals and I feel fortunate that I get to say that I love what I do every day. I am excited to be a part of the team at Pawsh and look forward to the path it leads me down.

Hi, I’m Alex! I am a veterinary assistant at Pawsh and have worked in the field for 4 years now. I am also a student at Carrington College in the Veterinary Technology program and hope to become a Registered Veterinary Technician by the end of the year! I grew up riding and training horses and have 3 horses of my own (Max, Luna and Polaris), 2 of which I rescued. I also have 3 dogs: Kara, my senior Australian Cattle Dog that is the best dog you could ask for, Abbey, my yellow Lab, and Porter my Black Lab puppy.

I have loved all sorts of animals ever since I could remember. I grew up in a large, animal-loving, rescue-supporting family. We never had less than 10 animals in the house a time. Whether it was volunteering at the Marine Mammal Center a few years ago or traveling the country showing and working at Arabian horse shows, my life has always been centered on animals… And I have loved every minute of it! In my spare time I like to ride my horses and go hiking and running with my dogs. I also enjoy going to Giants games with my boyfriend.

I’m a recent addition to the Pawsh family, but have loved every day! I look forward to seeing where my career takes me and caring for your pets soon!

Being a part of team Pawsh is a perfect fit for me because it allows me to do both. It’s a wonderful feeling going to work every day and loving not only what you do but also loving the team you get to do it with as well.

When I’m not at school or work I stay busy with my three fur babies, two beautiful daughters and awesome husband. We love to be outdoors camping, hiking, swimming, and kayaking. We are very fortunate to be a US Air Force family here at Travis and belong to an amazing military community. We have been blessed to live here in Vacaville for the past 11 years and enjoy all that California has to offer.

I can’t wait to see where my journey with Pawsh takes me and most of all I cannot wait to share the journey with all of you.


Jen Sventek

Head Receptionist

Hello, my name is Jennifer, most folks just call me Jen. ☺

I was born in the Philippines and am ½ Philipino and ½ Czech. I was raised a military brat and moved to this area when I was in the 2nd grade.

I love the great outdoors! When I’m not working, you can find me exploring trails, from the bay area to the redwoods and camping next to the pigmy forests. Fishing and four-wheeling are activities that I’m looking forward to trying out next, maybe even some bird hunting.

I love animals and have been known to help rescue and care for them when necessary. My one year old Malti-Poo, Mater, especially loves when I bring home new friends for him… Anything for my ‘Mates.’


April Smith

Receptionist

Hi, my name’s April and I’m a Vet Hospital Receptionist here at Pawsh Place. I live in Esparto, on 10 acres with my wonderful husband and son. I’ve had too many animals to count over the years but I currently just have two dogs, four cats (2 are barn kitties!) and 11 Alpacas… Yep, Alpacas!

I’ve worked my entire life in the Veterinary Industry, 25 years as a Vet Assistant (I loved assisting with pet dental procedures!) or in Reception. I’ve always loved animals. When I was in the 3rd grade, I brought home a stray Collie and begged my mother to allow us to keep him. After trying to find his owner first, she finally agreed we could give him a home! I remember always having multiple pets while growing up, they made our family complete. As a teenager, I fell in love with horses. A friend of mine had a stable and I remember spending all my spare time there, whenever possible. I learned how to ride, train and show horses in their arena, my favorite being an ex-race horse named Ms. Bar Roni. Most of the time we referred to her as Macaroni or Ms. Mac for short. I will always love horses, some of my fondest teenage memories is of training and showing them.

I enjoy working at Pawsh! I appreciate our pet care philosophies and love that we offer such great values to the pet community. I work with an amazing team of professionals who come to work every day committed to giving your pet the best, quality care possible. I’m proud to work here and look forward to giving you and your fur-babies a great customer experience the next time you visit! Hope to see you soon…


Amber Jones

Receptionist

I was born and raised in the Bay Area and have always had a fondness for animals. My mom would often remind me of a time when I was a little girl and tried to put 5 feral kittens into my lunch box so I could bring them into my bedroom. When I saw that Pawsh was hiring I knew this was the perfect position for me. I mean who wouldn’t love seeing puppies and kittens all day long? I also have over 10 years of customer service experience.

When I’m not working I’m one busy sports mom to 5 wonderful children. Yes, I did say 5! The running joke is that I have my own basketball team. I’ve been married to my husband JR for 7 years now and our blended family enjoys anything related to the outdoors or sports. I also enjoy photography on my downtime and run my own business. I look forward to seeing you and your pets soon.


Casey Manivong

Receptionist

Hi, I’m Casey. I’m from North Carolina, but moved here in 2014 after my husband got stationed at Travis AFB. My husband and I have 5 fur babies which include 2 dogs (Mika and Maple) and our 3 guinea pigs (Momo, Babs, and Oreo). I graduated from East Carolina University in 2013 with a bachelor’s degree in Rehabilitation Services. I worked at an inpatient rehabilitation program for adolescents for over a year before moving to California. I have also spent 5+ years working various retail jobs with an overall total of 9 years providing customer service.

On my down time I like to crochet or my husband and I will take our dogs hiking. I have recently taken up running even though I swore it was something I would never do. I also enjoy board games, reading, and cooking.

Growing up dogs were always a big part of our family and I could never picture my life without them. Slowly my love for animals grew from just dogs to all animals and they have now become my passion. I’m thrilled to be part of the Pawsh family and can’t wait to see where this journey will take me.

Tynina Spitzer

Receptionist

Hi, my name is Tynina and I’m a veterinary receptionist here at Pawsh. I love my job! I enjoy taking your calls, scheduling your pet’s appointments and welcoming in our daily patients. I love learning about your pet’s health and feel honored to help assist you with their pet care needs. I’ve always known that I wanted to work with animals. From a young age, I remember being obsessed with Lions. It’s been a dream of mine to be able to work with them and other large exotic animals ever since.

I currently have two dogs, a Chihuahua named Duchess and a Chi-Terrier mix named Cannoli. My pups are Pawsh puppies and I was actually a client before working here. I was so amazed by the high standard of care we received that I wanted to become part of the Pawsh team too. Pawsh sincerely cares about their staff members and the pet community that we serve. Every day I come to work, I feel like I’m with family, all working toward the same goal which is to give you the best pet care possible.

When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my new husband. We love to spend time on the lake and camping with our family, friends and fur-babies. I’m happy to help you any way I can here at Pawsh and look forward to meeting you and your pet(s) soon!


Arikka Shephard

Receptionist

Hi I’m Arikka and I work in the Boutique at Pawsh Place. I grew up moving around in a military family but settled down for most of my childhood in Germany. Throughout my life I have had many different pets but have always had a special place in my heart for my chameleon, who really taught me how each animal has a unique personality and bond with their owner. When I am not at Pawsh I enjoy knitting, horseback riding and reading!

I plan on starting school in January to pursue a degree in Biology and Animal Behavior with dreams of attending McGill University in Canada for my Doctorate in Animal Behavior. I hope to own my own animal sanctuary for endangered animals one day because I want to make a difference in animal’s lives and the animal community.

I love working for Pawsh because each staff member shares the common goal of giving customers everything that they want and need. Everyone collaborates in order to give our clients the best pet care and strives to get as close to perfection as possible. I am proud to be a part of this team and can’t wait to meet you and your fur baby!


Danielle Christian

Receptionist

I am originally from Michigan. My husband and I moved here in October 2016 because he got stationed at Travis AFB. We moved here with 1 fur baby, our cat Tiger. Both of us growing up in households with many animals, so we decided it was time for our first dog together. We adopted Sampson at the shelter here in Vacaville.

We love to go hiking, camping, and exploring this side of the country with Sampson. We love it here in Vacaville! Everyone is so welcoming and genuine.

I soon realized I absolutely loved being around animals and their “fur parents” so I decided to pursue a career working with them. I have been with Pawsh since April 2017. I love everyone here and all the warm hearted people who come in with their fur babies!


Nicole Charleston

Head Groomer

I would like to reach out to you all and introduce myself. My name is Nicole and I am the new lead groomer here at Pawsh! I initially learned the trade so I could groom my family’s poodle when I was a teen. However I later became certified and have been professionally grooming for almost fifteen years now. I really enjoy helping pets to be as comfortable as they are beautiful, and I am glad I can share the love with dogs in my community. I consider my specialty to be poodle grooming whether it be a contemporary creative groom, mid-century or even renaissance style. However I enjoy working with all breeds, especially seniors. I have a soft spot for elderly pets as I am now on my second poodle whom is turning ten this year. We only have so little precious time with these special members of our family’s and it is my goal to make sure that they are as happy about their groom as you are.


Kayla Martinez

Groomer

My name is Kayla amd I am a Dog Bather here at Pawsh and I am currently training to become a groomer! I have always had a passion for animals and I am so grateful to have the opportunity to work here. Ever since I can remember, I have always wanted to work with animals and I absolutely love what I do!

My boyfriend and I have a 2 year old Yellow lab and his name is Whiskey. He is the greatest fur baby, snuggle bug and sidekick. We like to go to the park and play fetch, go on evening walks and enjoy the outdoors as much as we can. Whiskey is my best friend and we couldn’t imagine life without him. He has brought us so much happiness and love.
I am proud to be a Pawshie and cannot wait to meet new fur babies along my journey as a part of this Pawsome team!


Kaylee Perry

Groomer

Hi there! My name is Kaylee! I’ve been a pet lover since my mom got our first kitten, Gizmo. Just two years old, you’d always see me carrying him around. As I aged, dogs became a passion of mine. When my parents moved out to the country, I brush and wash my dog, Max all the time. I fell in love with horses as teenager and have owned two, along with goats and chickens.

I started my grooming training under a groomer who had been in the trade for over twenty years. I spent the first five years bathing and brushing several large breed dogs, such as Great Pyrenees, Tibetan Mastiffs and a particular Irish Wolfhound named Dumbledore. I love dogs of all shapes and sizes and succeeding in giving them stylish transFURmations.

Nowadays, outside of Pawsh, you can catch me hiking with my three dogs, Krossbow, Dingo and Bandit, with whom I spend my downtime.

I look forward to my time with Pawsh and furthering my education within their standards. I’m so glad to be a part of this Animal and Community loving Practice and am happy to groom your pup soon!


Jordyn Lisec

Bather

Hello, my name is Jordyn Lisec and I’m a bather here at Pawsh! I’m 17 years old and started working here in September of 2017. I love animals and my eagerness to learn more about pet care has only flourished since working here. I remember being younger and my teachers asking us questions on the first day of school like, “What are your favorite hobbies?” and “Where were you born?” My favorite question was always, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Instantly I would scribble down “Veterinarian”. My love for all animals, in particular dogs, started when I was young. My first dog was a Weimaraner named Granite. I loved Granite so much and completely fell in love with the breed. Since then, I have had the pleasure of growing up with 4 other Weimaraners! My current pup, Jupiter, is a client here at Pawsh. My parents are extremely happy here and can’t imagine going anywhere else for our pet care needs. I have 2 other fur-babies as well, Django and Katie. I also have a not-so-furry friend Riker, who is a 4-year-old bearded dragon. I’ve had the best experience being a part of Team Pawsh and I can’t wait to see what memories and skill sets I acquire while working here. Working at Pawsh feels more like you’re a part of a big family. We work together and support each other to give your pet the best care possible. There is a loving and welcoming spirit here, one that makes you feel special. I hope you’ll bring your pets in soon, we’re looking forward to making you both feel special too!


Ellie Hunter

Grooming Apprentice

Hey everyone! I’m Ellie and I started at Pawsh this past April as a Play Care Coach, and recently I am also in the grooming department as an Assistant and Bather. I am an energetic and positive person who loves all sorts of animals. Working at Pawsh has been a goal of mine since 2016, and with hard work, determination and some animal experience up my sleeve; I am proud to say I am part of the Pawsh family. I recently graduated from Vacaville High School, where I was a part of the FFA program; I have raised pigs, rabbits and poultry, and each year I gained valuable skills that pushed me into the animal industry. I was able to take classes that taught me a little bit of everything there is to know about the animal industry.

Being a Play Care Coach is such an exciting job, you can make bonds with clients and their pets like no others. Seeing the dogs interact with each other teaches you a lot about how they socialize. It is something fun for the pups, and if you’re interested I highly recommend it.

Recently I have moved into the grooming department, where there is constantly something to be done. Whether I am getting splashed by a dog in a tub, or covered in hair from the dryer; it has been so much fun learning different aspects of the animal field.

Soon I hope to be attending Cosumnes River College, where I will be studying to become a Registered Vet Tech. I have always wanted to be a veterinarian, so I am thrilled for these next steps in my life. I am proud to be part of Pawsh at a young age, I can’t wait to see where it takes me.


Heather

Environmental Specialist

Heather is new to the vet field, but she is not new to being an animal lover. She has continuously enjoyed learning more about your pet’s health and well-being. Heather says the best part of her day is meeting and greeting all of the pets that come in. We are excited for Heather’s future at Pawsh Place Veterinary Center.


William Speakman

Environmental Specialist

I’m from a military family where I was raised overseas before coming here to California. I enjoy reading, watching shows and walking my dogs. My favorite animal is the tiger. I worked at a car dealership and have done volunteer work for charity.

I enjoy working with animals because they are just like people. They come in all different shapes and sizes and each have a unique way of communicating. There are plenty of programs to support people in need, unfortunately I feel there aren’t enough resources and people who want to help animals. I like working at Pawsh so I can help provide animal care for our community.

My favorite moment is welcoming a new family pet home for the first time and letting them steal my heart. I have been living with pets ever since I was little. The experience allowed me to develop close friendships as well as creating long lasting memories that I will always cherish.


Sarah Loban

Environmental Specialist

Hi my name is Sarah and I am new here at Pawsh Place! I currently work in the vet clinic as an environmental specialist where I get the opportunity to learn more about animal healthcare. For as long as I can remember I would beg my mom for pets, we’ve had snakes, rabbits, dogs and cats… Even rats! With my love for animals, I knew I wanted to work with and help them when I grew up. I’m planning on becoming a Vet Assistant/Tech and also have hopes of one day becoming a Veterinarian. Working at Pawsh gives me valuable pet care experience and the opportunity to be hands on with animals and their medical care! The supportive atmosphere here makes me even more passionate about having a career helping animals! When I’m not at Pawsh, I out riding and showing horses, enjoying adventuring outdoors, and raising pigs for fair! I take every opportunity I can to be around animals, this is just another reason why Pawsh is such a good fit for me! Hope to meet you and your pets soon!


William Sun

Play Care Coach

My name’s Will, and I’ve been a Vacaville native much like the rest of the staff. I’m a big dog enthusiast, and my current obsession is with husky dogs. I’ve been a long-time volunteer at animal rescues, and can never get rid of my passion for helping out pets, which are really people’s family members of a different species. I graduated from CSU Sacramento with a degree in Business Administration, and hope to use it any way I can towards my love of our furry companions.

I’ve always admired the work of veterinarians and still wish to pursue my dreams of finding the right balance between caring for animals and utilizing my skills. That’s why I feel excited to work for Pawsh, to be be able to really experience all aspects of pet care with such a tight-knit team. There really is no better place to be with such a welcoming environment that cares about the community that I’ve grown up in so much.

Anyway, when I’m not working, you can probably find me running for fun (and fitness!) or cooking. Another dream of mine is to become like Gordon Ramsay but we’ll see about that one.


Ashley Adams

Play Care Coach

My name is Ashley. I have lived in Vacaville for 28 years, so I’m super excited to be able to serve the community through Pawsh.

And I would make my mom walk it around the block with me! I still to this day love reading dog encyclopedias and watching dog shows.

I have always loved animals and science. I graduated from Solano Community College with my Associates in Biotechnology. I would really love to further my education and become a RVT or Veterinary Assistant as I love helping people as well as animals.

I love my position and find it so satisfying when I can help improve the general behavior of our clients. Dogs are pack animals and they need each other, there is no better feeling for me than to see them being able to engage with one another in a fun and positive environment. Don’t have the time to exercise your dog during the week? Bring them to me and I’ll be happy to give them the care they need to be healthier and happier for you and your family! I have three kids and a dog named Harley, who’s an awesome Pit/Rott mix. I’ve always known that I wanted to work with animals and I have found my home here at Pawsh Place!

Darci Chadwick

Director of Marketing & Public Contact

Hi, welcome to Pawsh Place!

I’m Darci and I love being a part of this amazing Pawsh team! I am a wife, proud mother of four awesome kids and have enjoyed living in Vacaville for the last 25 years. I’ve been a local business owner and am very involved in local sports, clubs and charities. I care about our community and love the fact that Pawsh is a locally owned business.

My family is currently blessed with two pawsome pets, our Boston Terrier, Reya (My Rey a sunshine!) and our sweet Morkie named Vallie (a Valentine’s surprise!) Dr. Hatt was my Veterinarian before I started working with Pawsh so I have experienced firsthand the incredible service that she provides to her pet families. I knew after our first visit that I wouldn’t trust my pets with anyone else. Pawsh offers a variety of pet services and I love being able to share that value with our local pet community. Our staff is wonderfully talented and kind, each of us are dedicated to delivering you and your fur family the very best pet care experience possible.

Thanks for stopping by, we hope to see you soon!


Kimberly Anderson

Director of Administration, RVT

Hi there! My name is Kimberly and I’m the Director of Administration here at Pawsh Place. I started my adventure in veterinary medicine in 1997 during my senior year of high school. I later attended Cosumnes River College and earned a degree in Veterinary Technology. I became a Registered Veterinary Technician in 2001 and have been fortunate to work in many different roles within veterinary medicine. I have small animal experience in general practice, emergency and critical care, surgery (neurology, oncology, orthopedics and soft tissue), anesthesia, and academia. I have also earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biological Sciences and am currently working towards a Masters in Business Administration.

When I am not enjoying my time at Pawsh, I can be found having fun with my husband, our son and our three legged dog Murphy. I was fortunate enough to adopt Murphy from a shelter in February 2014 after he had been hit by a car. Many steps were taken but we were unable to save his leg, which has not slowed him down one bit!! I enjoy doing many different activities with my boys and enjoy teaching my son about the amazing world of animals!

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me, I really look forward to helping you and your furry family with your pet care needs!


Katie Rose

Retail Assistant Manager

I’m a very happy and warm hearted girl who has loved animals all my life! I always dreamed as a little girl to have a pup-family of my own. After marrying my wonderful husband, we adopted our Pomeranian, Nellie. Our sweet Nellie is our world and we can’t imagine our life without her. My husband and I moved to Vacaville a little over two years ago and fell in love with the town.

After visiting Pawsh with my joyful little Pomeranian, I knew this was the place for me! Nellie & I had an incredible experience as a first time client & patient. We instantly felt so cared for and valued. I’m new to the pet care world and am very excited to be working with the amazing doctors and friendly staff. Everyone at Pawsh is so welcoming! When you bring your pet in, you’ll both feel like family here!
