Chelsea has been with PBVC for 3 years. She always has a smile on her face and has been known to take selfie’s with unsuspecting cute animals! Though she is trained as a veterinary assistant, Chelsea’s primary focus at PBVC is Customer Service and she is one of our lead Receptionists so she will often be the first to greet you as you come in our clinic. We are pleased to announce that Chelsea is our February Featured Employee!
Why did you choose to work with animals?
From an early age I have always had a love for all types of animals. During high school I worked with various barnyard animals through the LA County Parks and Recreation. I decided I wanted to pursue a career in animals and got my Bachelors of Science in Animal Science. I love to volunteer and have traveled to Nicaragua to work at a free spay and neuter clinic and Thailand to treat elephants that have been injured riding camps, logging camps and landmine injuries.
Why do you love working at Pismo Beach Veterinary Clinic?
I love working at Pismo Beach Veterinary Clinic because I love our clients and seeing all of the pets grow and go through their life stages.
Chelsea was born and raised in Santa Clarita, CA and moved to San Luis Obispo in 2013 to attend Cal Poly where she received her Bachelors of Science in Animal Science. She joined PBVC in October of 2014 and couldn’t be happier! She has always had a love for all types of animals and plans on applying to vet school in the near future. Between school and working at PBVC, Chelsea works at The Equine Center as a member of the ICU team.
Chelsea enjoys traveling, kayaking, sport shooting. In her free time Chelsea spends time with her boyfriend and three dogs, Pudge, Ruger and Leroy Brown.
