Cat is the Office & Transport Coordinator at Mountain View Humane. In this role, she serves as liaison with the clinic and patients, handles all medical data entry, medical paperwork and post-surgical patient contact, as well as conducts all transports, ensuring that proper safety and clinic standards are met before, during and after transport. She also drives, fuels and handles all aspects of the mobile spay/neuter clinic, which ensures that the mobile clinic is bringing services to communities throughout southwest Virginia, especially those with travel barriers. Before joining Mountain View in 2022, Cat ran and operated her own grooming business, was a veterinary assistant for seven years for a private practice in New Jersey, at the same as serving as the grooming manager for Petco for six years. Cat attended Brookdale Community College for auto technician and is a certified pet groomer with licenses and schooling through Petco, even shadowing a master groomer for a year before graduating. Cat lives on a 52-acre farm with chickens, goats and pigs. She has a female Pitbull named Sassy that she rescued when Sassy was only three weeks old after her mother was hit by a car. Her 10 year old cat, Riggs, came from a friend who was unable to keep him as a kitten. Riggs became the grooming shop cat, greeting customers and pets. He now enjoys his retirement with all of his farm animal friends. The newest addition to the family is Rebel, a two year old Belgian Malinois she rescued in November 2021. Farm life suits Rebel’s energy level, allowing him to run with the four-wheelers and swim with Sassy every chance they get. Cat chose to work for Mountain View to work alongside others who are passionate about pets and animal care. She wanted a job that helps make a difference in the lives of people and animals.
