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

Kat ~ Office Manager

I joined SVAH in 2007. One of my favorite things about working here is seeing how excited some of our patients get when they come in and see us. Watching their happy dances and smiles makes it all worthwhile. 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 crazy little Yorkie-Poo, named Spring. We found the secret to wearing her out is to spend our weekends lakeside, paddleboarding or camping.
