VotM Vet Staff
BrigitteBorn in San Francisco, Brigitte moved with her family to Sonoma at the age of two. By the time she reached second grade, she knew her life's dream was to work with animals. She got her first taste of working in a veterinary office at the age of 17 and has never looked back. Brigitte graduated from California State University, Chico with a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science and a minor in agriculture in 2007. She enjoys living in the wine country with her husband Chris, daughters Vivian and Finley, dogs Brody, Milah and Kunu, and cats Tuscany, Siena and Rufus. In her spare time she loves traveling, reading a good book, hiking with her dogs and taking advantage of the wonderful and tasty wineries that fill the valley.
LaureeLauree's veterinary technician career began in hospitals in Georgia and Florida before she became part of the Sonoma veterinary community in 1996. Her expertise and caring manners have helped clients and their pets feel comfortable in the veterinary setting. She is known by our staff as the "dog whisperer," having the talent of calming our particularly anxious canine companions when no one else can. Lauree has a cat named Barstool Blues, a mischievous 3-legged gray shorthair who lets nothing hinder his sense of adventure.
Katie joined our team in 2016 and is pursuing her veterinary technician license at Santa Rosa Junior College. She currently resides with her husband Tanner and cats Hazel and Arya. When she's not busy spending time with her family and friends, Katie enjoys visiting beer gardens with her husband, playing her guitar and watching her cats at their hijinks.
Felicia began working with us in 2016 as a veterinary technician. She is currently mother to baby Rayne and fur babies Master Chief and Ikaika. Her previous experience with shelter medicine and love of bully breeds has helped us adapt ways that aid timid and fearful dogs into feeling more comfortable coming to our practice. Her interests include dog behavior, ultrasonography, creative activities with her daughter, camping and scary movies.
Chelsea RoseChelsea Rose rejoined our team after moving back to Sonoma in 2020. She is the happy wife of Sam and ecstatic new mother to Juniper Moon. While motherhood has temporarily halted her studies at Santa Rosa Junior College, she is excited about returning to work to further hone her already excellent veterinary technician skills. Having worked at Vintage Kennel when she was younger, many of our doggy patients see her as a welcoming friend and official tummy rubber. Chelsea Rose has jumped right back into her old position with ease that pets and humans alike feel like she never left! Her household includes doggy, Leelah and kitties, Gus Gus and Dixie Fern.
