Shelby - LVTIT

Hi, I was born in Salt Lake City and moved to Elko with my family when I was 8. I graduated from University of Nevada, Reno, with a degree in Veterinary Sciences. I was in the Pre-Vet Club for two years and The Student Chapter of the Wildlife Society for three years - I was the Vice-president for two years. My hobbies include drawing, crafts, reading, and spending time with my three dogs, two cats, one bearded dragon, one leopard gecko, and two fish - I love them ALL! On my free time, I am usually up for anything - I really enjoy walking my dogs up Lamoille Canyon. I have always had a love for animals since I was a little kid - I ALWAYS brought home strays. I love this job as its a new experience every day, and it keeps me challenged and on my toes.


Ann - LVT

I have loved animals and knew I would work in Veterinary Medicine since I was eight years old. I went to the University of Nevada, Reno and graduated in 2009 with a Bachelors Degree in Animal Science. I started working as a Veterinary Assistant in 2006 and I have worked in various small animal clinics since, including two years in North Carolina at an Emergency and Critical Care Clinic. I started working for Elko Veterinary Clinic in 2012. I have an energetic yellow lab and a rescue cat at home.


Courtney - Veterinary Technician Assistant

My name is Courtney - I live with my 18 year old dog, Spur. I have had him since he was a puppy so he is truly my best friend. Most of my childhood was here in Elko, where I showed almost every animal you can think of, including quarter horses, pigmy goats, sheep, steers, and rabbits. Then at 12 years old, I moved to Oregon with my mom. There, I was a member of FFA, showed pigs, and did several public speaking events. I then moved out when I was 17 and have been on my own ever since. Finally about a year and a half ago, I moved back down here to Elko, NV to be closer to family.

I started working for Elko Veterinary Clinic in July and have loved every minute of it. I am currently enrolled in the Penn foster program to become a licensed veterinarian technician. I am so grateful to be a part of such an amazing team here at EVC.

Tia - Veterinary Technician Assistant

My name is Tia and I have been in the veterinary field for 3 years. It started in Washington when my neighbor, who is a veterinarian, asked me to help with paperwork in her office and it just took off like wildfire from there. I moved to Utah and worked as a veterinary assistant for 1 ½ years before moving to Elko and started working for Elko Veterinary Clinic. I have 3 dogs myself that I love very much. In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors at a BBQ with some great friends and good drinks.

I still have livestock and horses as well as chickens, dogs and cats. I am currently enrolled in school to become a licensed Veterinary Technician, but I am currently a Vet Tech Assistant at Elko Veterinary Clinic. I've been here for a year and I love working in the veterinary field!

Teresa - Veterinary Technician Assistant

Hi! My name is Teresa. I was raised on a farm in North Dakota and grew up with a very strong love of animals and hard work. Out of high school, I joined the Air Force, and from there, I moved to Elko almost 28 years ago. Four and a half years ago, I found my dream job here at Elko Vet Clinic. I started here as a kennel tech and have since changed to my current position as a surgery technician. My favorite part of my job has always been and will always be taking care of your pets, whether they are here because they are sick, having surgery, or just boarding.
