Last month, we put out a call for a new receptionist for the clinic. We were amazed at the response we received. We had over 200 applicants for the position! Choosing the final candidate was tough, but we are pleased to welcome Valerie Handley to the staff. You can read a bit about her below.
And we especially want to thank those of you that chose to submit a resume or offer to help us in other ways. The Scottsdale Cat Clinic has had a wonderful first year thanks to you all, and we are touched that so many of you not only trust us with your pets, but also liked us enough to want to work with us. I wish we could have hired more of you.
The Clinic is growing again. This week we are interviewing for a veterinary technician, so we'll have a new member to introduce to you shortly.
Valerie has recently joined the clinic after making the decision to follow her life-long aspirations working in the animal field. She graduated from ASU and then spent a number of years in sales before making the jump to the veterinary field. Having two rambunctious cats herself, Nala and Lucky, as well as three dogs, Mack, Riley and Carmen, she is eager to help out with your cat in any way possible. Recently married, she and her husband, Ben, live nearby in Scottsdale and enjoy walking their dogs and letting their kitties roam the backyard. Now that she's a part of the clinic, family and friends have set up a betting pool, gambling on when she will bring home her third cat.
Goodbye and Good Luck
We also want to say goodbye to Jaime Vasche and wish her luck in her new endeavours. Jaime helped us tremendously, from before we opened through our first year struggles. We couldn't have made it this far without her.
