I hope to meet you and your furry friend soon.

Krista ~ Receptionist

Hey there! My name is Krista and this is my best friend Coco Chanel. I am a criminology major with a serious love for Animals. I have always had four-legged friends, and in 2010 I finally got the chance to work with them when Posh Paws Pup Salon was looking for a new Manager; which is also where I first met Motor. Early in 2015, Motor asked me to come be the smiley new receptionist at Sierra View Animal Hospital; and no one can say no to Motor! In our spare time Coco and I love to go shopping.

My name is Lynn and I joined the Sierra View family in the spring of 2018. I received my training as an Animal Care Specialist at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C.

Kat ~ Office Manager

I was born and raised in Vancouver, Canada and moved to Fresno in 2005 to be with my husband, Patrick. We share our home with a Yorkie / Trouble Maker Mix, named Dookie. I’ve worked in the Veterinary field for 15+ years and joined SVAH in 2007. I love spending my day with animals. Especially “Motor” my office buddy. I spend most of my day holding his paw while trying to work one handed and trying to ignore his not so subtle nudges when he wants a cookie. But I wouldn't want it any other way!
