    I have been working in the veterinary field now for 19 years. I became a certified technician in 2003 and attended the University of Arizona for a Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Science. I love working with and helping animals, and have had the opportunity to work in all aspects of veterinary medicine from shelter medicine, private practice, Integrative medicine to working at the specialty center with the boarded specialists. My passion is in surgery, integrative medicine and rescue work. I came to Santa Cruz Pet Clinic to help make a difference in our community and to assist Dr. Neal in providing medical services to our clients and their pets in need of good quality medicine that they can afford. When I am not working, I enjoy hiking with my dog, swimming and yoga.
  • Larmie

    Larmie brings her positive and enthusiastic "Get'R'Done" attitude to work -- every day! She also brings a wealth of experience in her position as Veterinary Technician at the Santa Cruz Veterinary Clinic. Her love and concern for animals resulted in her attending Pima Medical Institute in Colorado Springs, where she graduated in May 2005 as a Vet Assistant. Larmie then interned at the Colorado Springs Humane Society and found that she loved shelter work! After working for a Small Animal Hospital for a year following veterinary assistant school, she knew working with animals would be her life's work. From May 2006 to October 2009 the Southern Arizona Humane Society Spay/Neuter Clinic offered her a position as a Clinic Technician, but she was quickly promoted to Senior Supervisor. In October 2009 she had an opportunity to work in a small animal hospital in New Hampshire, but missed home and Arizona weather too much to stay. So Larmie joined the spay/neuter clinic at HSSAZ in February 2011. During this time, she joined others in the "Mash style" clinics in Mexico and Native American reservations. In January, 2013, Larmie accepted Dr. Neal's offer of a position with the newly opened Santa Cruz Clinic, where she continues to follow her passion for spay/neuter clinics in Douglas, AZ and volunteers at spay/neuter "Mash" clinics. But she is NOT all work and no play – when she's not working, she's more than likely riding her Harley Davidson motorcycle – just like her Dad taught her!

  • Tiffany

    Tiffany is a recent graduate of Pima Medical Institute. She became a Veterinary Assistant to become a voice for animals as she has always wanted since she was a little girl.
