Julie H., Hospital Manager


Julie was born in Sacramento and was raised in Lodi. She has a background in management with many years spent in the grocery industry. After leaving the food industry, she earned her AA and AS degrees along with passing the National Board Exam and California Board Exam for Registered Veterinary Technicians in 2003. She joined the team at VCA Bradshaw Animal Hospital in 2004 as an RVT about a year after graduating from Consumnes River College Veterinary Technology Department. In 2006, Julie was promoted to Technician Supervisor and in 2007 to Hospital Manager. Getting to know our clients and spending time talking with them about their pets is what she enjoys most about working at VCA Bradshaw.

Julie is married and has two adult sons, both of whom graduated from California State University, Sacramento with bachelor degrees. In her time off, Julie and her husband enjoy vacationing on the California Central Coast and taking long walks with their two dogs, Ozzy, a Schnauzer/Poodle mix and Sprout, a Shih Tzu/Havanese mix. She also has a cat named Sylvester, who she raised as a bottle baby when he was 3 weeks old. He is now almost 14 years old!
