Hello, my name is Don. I have worked with animals for over 14 years now and recently became fear free certified. I work with all animals from birds and exotics, to dogs and cats. Over the years I have worked in shelters, boarding facilities, and hospitals. I have worked in ER/ICU, surgery, as well as general practices. I have 2 Pitbulls at home named Bruce and Ebony and my beautiful wife, who is an RN. (She works with people, I work with animals)
I have been working with animals for the past 11 years. Prior to that I was involved with rescue, which made me realize my passion for working with animals.I enjoy spending time with my Yorkshire terriers Clifden, Maddie May, and my newly adopted Dottie, who I met at ROCAH thru Rover Rescue. They share our home with Pepito our fabulous tabby cat, who has the patience of a Saint.I also enjoy sewing, quilting, reading, and going out with friends.
Hello my name is Nanci and I joined ROCAH in the beginning of 2017! I am a fluent Spanish speaker. I’m very passionate for the care for animals; everyday I continue to expand my experience/education with the doctors here. I always strive for excellence. I’ve grown up with all kinds of different animals including horses, sheep, dogs, and cats. I own a pony named Zesar, I love spending time with him and my other two pets, Ruby and Ala. I also love hiking and spending time with my family. One day I’d like to open up my own dog grooming business, since I'm also a certified pet stylist. I will always make sure your four-legged pet is going home happy!
Hi! I'm Ashley, I love animals and have been around them since I was little; our house was never without a pet or four. I currently have three cats, an orange domestic short-hair, Wilson and 2 black domestic medium-hair rescues (who are mother and daughter), Eloise & Frida. I have worked with animals previously as a photographer for many years and I have been in customer service for 15 years. I strive for excellence when it comes to clients and their pets. To me you're like a member of our extended family and I want you to leave with a smile on your face and confidence in your heart.
Hi there, My name is Deanna and I have been around animals my entire life. I grew up in a rural area where I was exposed to all types of animals. Along with having cats and dogs, I also raised chicken and pigs, and showed them at fairs across the state. Currently, I have a Terrier mix named Dooney, a Labrador/Pitbull mix named Nala, a wire-haired Dachshund named Stewart, a Boxer named Hank, and 3 cats. Maverick is a gray short-hair, and Charlie and Jester who are both seal-point Siamese. I graduated from Illinois State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Agricultural Education, and teach full time. I am now in a relief position at ROCAH, so you will still see me some! In my spare time I love being outside with my dogs, off-roading with my boyfriend, and going on adventures with my friends.
