Meet Our Team
Client Services Manager
I’m Lynda and I’ve worked in all aspects of the veterinary hospital, from entry level to hospital manager for a 5 doctor practice over my career. I have had a love for animals since I was very young. One of my most exciting positions was an Avian and Exotic practice in Pasadena, where I got an up-close and personal view of many different kinds of pets such as Iguanas, Chameleons, all kinds of large birds, and small animals; hedgehogs, Capuchin monkeys etc. I have 2 children, a son and a daughter, and 2 grand-baby girls. The lessons I hope they have learned is to love what you do, and volunteer for a purpose. I have a Lab Mix named “Jack” that we adopted from Animal Services and 3 cats. My favorite things to do are spent with my family, horseback riding, and traveling.
I was born and raised in Iowa. I moved to California in 1987. I have lived on the central coast for the past 13 years. I have always been passionate about dogs, and have volunteered at a local no kill dog shelter. My career has spanned over 30 years in customer service. I find daily fulfillment in helping people and their pets.
Hi! I’m Brianna. Growing up, I lived all over the country due to my dad’s career with the military, and it was definitely an experience. I have always had a passion for animals, and had several pets ranging from beta fish, hermit crabs, cats, dogs, a parakeet, and a beloved pony named Spats.
I came back to California in 2014, and I’ve been here ever since! I’ve worked in customer service for several years, working my way up to becoming one of the youngest store managers at a locally owned grocery store while attending school. I got my associates degree at Cuesta, but decided to change my path at the very end, and here I am!
I’m currently attending an online program to become a registered veterinary technician, and I’m very excited about my future here at Las Tablas. When I’m not studying or at the hospital, my free time is spent with my family, friends, and my border collie mix, Scout.
Registered Veterinary Technician, Technician Manager
I joined the LTAH team as a Technician Supervisor in April 2015. I was born and raised in Mendocino County. My interest in veterinary medicine started in high school when I starting working at a two doctor veterinary hospital. From there my life took me to Sacramento where I spent almost two years working at a specialty 24/7 facility. I have been on the Central Coast for 15 years. I am a graduate of Cal Poly SLO with a Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Science, which along with my extensive work in the veterinary field allowed me take the Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT) exam. For the majority of my time here on the Central Coast I have worked as a RVT/Manager at a local veterinary hospital. When not at work my husband and I enjoy raising our 6 year old daughter, working around the house and spending time with friends.
Registered Veterinary Technician, Assistant Technician Manager
I grew up in Atascadero and attended Atascadero High School. I started working with animals at the local humane society when I was in high school. Working there made me realize my passion for animals. I then moved to Santa Maria to attend school to become an RVT. After finishing my school I returned back to the north county to gain my experience and work towards my goal of getting my RVT license. I am excited to be part of the team here at Las Tablas Animal Hospital.
Registered Veterinary Technician, Training Technician Manager
Hello! My name is Alison and I’ve always had a passion for caring for animals. I started working for a 3 doctor veterinary clinic when I was in college and have worked at 2 other emergency clinics since then. I moved to California with my husband, Blake in 2010. We welcomed our sweet baby boy, Connor in September 2014. We also have 3 cats, 1 dog, 1 parakeet and several fish. I’m excited to be a member of the Las Tablas AH Team and look forward to helping provide quality care for you and your pets!
Hello! My name is Natalie and I joined the Las Tablas family in March 2018. I grew up in Ventura County and fell in love with the Central Coast when I attended Cal Poly SLO. While in college, I began volunteering and working with local rescue groups and humane societies. I transitioned to working in veterinary hospitals and clinics four years ago and have been working passionately as a technician since. There is nothing I enjoy more than helping to calm a nervous or sick animal, making their hospital visit as positive and comfortable as possible. My passion for animals extends beyond our smaller furry friends. I have been working and training horses in natural horsemanship for nearly ten years, focusing on trust, bond, and communication. My understanding of animal behavior translates well to the hospital setting, allowing me to connect with patients and create a calming environment. I returned to the area in March with my 8 year old Cattle Dog, Lady, and two cats, Kitty and Nicholas. I look forward to meeting you and your pets!
I’m Emily! I grew up in Santa Barbara County and moved to North San Luis Obispo County about 15 years ago. I have always had a passion for all types animals, especially horses. In fact, I have four horses, one dog and a handful of barn cats. When I’m not at work, I can be found riding and competing on my horses; I have been barrel racing and competing in rodeos almost my entire life. I love living in North County and enjoy learning and working at Las Tablas Animal Hospital!
Registered Veterinary Technician
I have been working in the veterinary field since the age of 16. I started as a kennel assistant and worked my way up to veterinary assistance before going to school to get my RVT License. I graduated from the Veterinary Technician program at Foothill College in 2013 and was licensed shortly thereafter. I spent 10 years working in a busy emergency and specialty practice in Santa Cruz before we moved down here to Atascadero. My husband, Dan and son, Mason moved here at the beginning of 2019 when we bought our first home. We have 5 big dogs and 2 cats – we love to rescue! I cannot wait to meet all of our wonderful clients and am excited to be part of the team.
