Gloria
Veterinary Assistant Supervisor
Gloria, one of our Certified Veterinary Assistant and Treatment Supervisor, always knew she would work animals. Even as a kid she always brought home strays and cared for them. Gloria has cats, dogs, goats, chickens, and ducks. She has worked at VCA Crestwood for 18 years. In her free time Gloria loves to care for her barnyard critters and spending time with her grand kids, and they love granny's house because of all of the animals! Gloria loves her job and taking care of other people's pets. When people give feedback about how well we take care of their pets, it makes it worthwhile in her eyes.
