  • Amanda Owens, DVM

She graduated with honors from Ross University and completed a year of clinical rotations at Oregon State University.

In her off time, you are likely to find Caren hiking the local mountains or out on the track playing Roller Derby. 

  • Denise Razo

    Denise knew from a young age that she wanted to work with animals. She grew up taking care of dogs, rabbits, fish and parakeets. Now she has a bachelor's degree in animal science from Cal Poly Pomona and her goal is to become a registered veterinary technician.

    When she isn't working, Denise enjoys spending time with her three dogs – Ollie, Jack and Milo – and visiting Disneyland

  • Jessica Lien
    Veterinary Assistant

    Jessica is a certified veterinary assistant and is currently working on becoming a certified dog trainer. She has had a love of animals since growing up around livestock on her grandparents’ farm in Northern California.

    Jessica says it seems like she has spent her whole life either chasing chickens or her family dogs around the open fields. She is currently a mom to four “fur babies”: a tri-pawed orange tabby named Wiggles; a spunky black and white tabby named Ollie; an over-loving husky mix named Kaiba; and a happy-go-lucky German Shepherd named Marik.

  • Lisa Kates
    Veterinary Assistant & Receptionist

    Lisa’s interest in animals began early in life. In high school, she took ROP Animal Care (for zoo animals) and soon after starting the class was hired as an animal caretaker. 

    After graduating high school, Lisa started working for a local veterinarian. She then took a break to pursue more schooling, get married and raise four children. 

    During this break, she began competitively showing her Labrador Retrievers. Later, she worked with and helped rehab local wildlife at Sunshine Haven Wildlife Rehabilitation Hospital.

    Now Lisa has joined the team at Sacred Hearts Veterinary Hospital which she says is filled with amazing people that share the same passion for animals that she does.

    At home, Lisa keeps busy taking care of four dogs, two cats, one bird, fish and five lizards. She also cares for foster “fur babies.”

  • Veronica Estrada
    Receptionist

    Veronica has a real passion for animals and has two “fur babies” of her own – Oreo, who is a black lab, and Olaf, who is a Pitbull. In her free time, Veronica enjoys spending time outdoors and being adventurous. She also loves going to Disneyland.

  • Cynthia Flores
    Veterinary Assistant

    Cynthia’s love of animals began at a young age. In high school, she joined the Future Farmers of America (FFA) program. She raised sheep and worked with other livestock all four years of high school.

    Cynthia is currently furthering her education at Mt San Antonio College where she is enrolled in the registered veterinary technician program. She is also currently mom to three Boston Terriers.
