paw Team Spotlight
Lisa Olson
Medical Director

Dr. Olson grew up in a small rural community in central California, where she developed her love of animals. Her desire to help animals and their owners led her to veterinary school. She attended UC San Diego for her undergraduate education and knew San Diego would eventually be her new hometown. After graduating from veterinary school, she returned to San Diego where she lives with her family. Dr. Olson has been Medical Director at VCA Market Street since 2016. Prior to that, she completed an internship at VCA Emergency Animal Hospital and Referral Center in Mission Valley, and was an associate veterinarian at VCA Hillcrest since 2005.

Kyle Barnes
RVT Hospital Manager
Kyle grew up in the San Diego area, but moved to Oregon as a teenager. After attending the University of Oregon, he was looking for his calling. Kyle originally decided to pursue human nursing, but changed his mind and decided that his love for animals and his desire to work with them was strong enough to pull him into animal care rather than human care. What better place to pursue his true passion than back in sunny San Diego.

Kyle has been in the veterinary field for 10 years, and after going back to school, has been a Registered Veterinary Technician for 7 years. Kyle has been with VCA since 2016 and joined VCA Market St. in 2018. He loves his work and the fact that it consistently provides him with new challenges and excitement.
