As Manager of the Licensed Veterinary Technicians, Techs in Training, and Veterinary Assistants, Ann has been a valued Rainbow healthcare team member since 1994. She holds the honor of being one of the first graduates of the accelerated Veterinary Technicians program at the College of Southern Nevada.
Being a native California "Valley-Girl" from Lancaster, California, she married her high school sweetheart, Chris, and moved to her newly adopted hometown of Las Vegas. After 14 years of marriage, and 10 years in the making, Ann and Chris received their true blessing. They are the proud parents of one very handsome young son, Taylor.
Ever since Ann was a little girl she would be the one bringing home the wounded bunny, bird, or stray animal and would nurse them back to health. She still maintains that passion in her adult life as she assists Dr. Patton in his laparoscopies and procedures. She also holds a special interest in dentistry and feline medicine. In fact, it was Ann that took two very tiny abandoned kittens home every night and tube and bottle-fed them every 2-3 hours until they were able to eat on their own. Those two rascals grew up and became Dr. Patton's cats!
In the little spare time, a working Mom has, Ann enjoys camping, cooking, and motorcycle riding with her family and friends.
True to Ann's philosophy, she believes animals are not just pets. They are family. In fact, many say they are their children. She is devoted to helping them live longer and healthier lives as part of our family members.
