Outside of work, I enjoy my time with my children and grandchildren.


Sierra

After he and I were both discharged we moved here to the Bay Area, where I pursued my credentials to be a veterinary technician. We have expanded our two-legged family and have two beautiful children. We love being outdoors; we go camping and hiking as much as we can! I have been a member of the BFPC family since January 2016 and everyday day at work is always a new adventure! Loving and caring for all the patients that visit us here is the best part of every day.


Rylie
Client Service Coordinator

In 2016 I had the opportunity to start working at BFPC. At the time, I had no idea of all of the friendships that would come from that decision. The two shorties in the picture with me are Kurtis and Maci. They are both Cardigan Welsh Corgis, one of my favorite breeds. I am a farm girl, so I have had, and still have a countless number of animals. I am currently a part-time student at Los Medanos College and plan to graduate with my Associate’s degree in Business Management.

Chris
Patient Care Specialist

I have been involved in working with animals in one capacity or another since my teenage years, often volunteering at animal shelters and local animal events. After working in the human medical industry for 13 years, I decided to pursue my passion of working with animals on a full-time basis. I have been with BFPC since the beginning of 2018. I wake up excited to go to work every day to see our amazing patients and their caring owners. I continue to volunteer at shelters and community events when time allows. I enjoy spending time with my husband of 31 years and our 2 children, who are away at college. I have 3 dogs; Jemiah, Cooper, and Sasha, whom I love with all my heart, and Kevin, a beta fish, that I talk to when getting ready every morning.


Carmen
Patient Care Specialist, RVT

Life is crazy but not boring! My senior year of high school, I had the opportunity to volunteer at BFPC and fell in love with working with animals! When I get to work with animals and the BFPC crew, it’s like a dream come true. I’ve been with BFPC since 2018. I became a credentialed veterinary technician in July 2019. Now that I am set in my career, I can focus on moving my life forward. October 2019, I will be marrying my high school sweetheart. We currently have 3 dogs, 3 cats,4 chickens, 2 ducks with love in our hearts for more!


Kayla

I’ve been with BFPC since 2018. I’ve always loved animals from an early age; so much so that I completed a bachelor’s degree in Animal Science at UC Davis.

Outside of work, I spend time with my own animals – 2 dogs, 5 cats, and 2 rabbits. I also enjoy hanging out with my family and friends!


Kristina

I moved to California from Washington State in the spring of 2018. I brought with me my 3 horses and my Catahoula leopard dog, Kyser. In Washington, I managed a Hunter/Jumper facility, so it was a no-brainer that I wanted to stay in the animal industry. I became a team member in the summer of 2018. In my free time, I’m either with my horses, Heidi, Ice, and Prince, or going on adventures with Kyser
