Assistant Hospital Manager

Joshlyn Harding, Assistant Practice Manager, works alongside Tara and Dr. Kay to train new staff and to assist clients, staff and Veterinarians, and is a "Jack of all trades." Her tireless work ethic shows in all she does. Joshlyn first fell in love with the front office area of the animal hospital when she worked as a receptionist at a local practice just out of high school. She joined VCA Irvine University Park in 1998 and in 2014 she was promoted to Assistant Practice Manager. Joshlyn embodies the culture and  bond building interaction she has with clients and staff. She loves that her time at VCA IUP has allowed her to establish lasting relationships with multiple generations of client families and their pets. By building these bonds she has established the hospital as the main knowledge source to our clients for their pets. When Joshlyn isn't running around VCA IUP, she can be found at the Big A watching baseball, at the Honda Center cheering on a hockey game, or at the dog park with her Pomeranian, Floyd!
