Nikki is a Fear Free Certified RVT who came to us in February 2019. She has worked in the veterinary field for over 14 years, and prior to that worked in human resources, employee relations and event planning.
Nikki cites her love, respect, and passion for animals as the reason she made a career shift to work in the veterinary industry. She has hopes to one day achieve a leadership role in the future, while also helping promote the Fear Free approach to animal handling and care.
She currently shares her living space with a bevy of animals—she has three dogs named Hashbrown, Hope Hazel and Summer, and three cats named Chucky, Paulie and Parkfield. Nikki rescued each of these special animals from either shelters, rescue organizations or through long term fostering, and while all of them came from an abusive or neglectful situation, they are very happy now to be with her!
When Nikki isn’t working with us at Buena Vet, she enjoys hiking, watching movies, dining, traveling and hanging out with friends and family. Regarding pet care, she wants all clients to know that: “I will always treat their pets as though they are my own. That’s a promise! And of course, I am truly honored to be trusted with their pet!”
