“I love it here”. We have an amazing team of people; they are welcoming, flexible and knowledgeable. I so much appreciate the level of medicine that is practiced here.
Her commitment to detail and excellent client service has formed the template for training and guidelines for all support staff members at Serra Vet. Her vision and dedication to helping clients and supporting the staff in a variety of ways has been one of her most important contributions. Her dedication and devotion does not stop at Serra however, but extends to her “wonderful husband” and “Three fantastic children”. She is very close to her family and spending time with them is what gives her “the most joy”. She enjoys playing with her cat “Gilbert” and is always looking for more time to do artwork, and squeeze in movies, yoga, reading, and cooking as hobbies into her busy days.
Pam enjoys the outdoors and just completed her 10th Half Marathon this year. She describes Serra Vet as a place that makes her “very proud” of what her and Dr. Natt have created right here in the heart of Silicon Valley. She feels that Serra Vet has a “fantastic and dedicated staff and together we provide the utmost in quality service and care for our community and their animal companions.”
Kristin has had a life long passion for animals. She completed the Veterinary Technology program at Carrington College in San Jose in 2015 and became part of the Serra Veterinary Hospital team shortly after completing her final clinical externship here. Kristin enjoys the small, friendly, family-like atmosphere at Serra Vet. She enjoys all aspects of working in the hospital, whether it be interfacing with clients at the front desk and in the exam rooms, to assisting the doctors in the back, with treatments and procedures. Her main interests in the hospital include dentistry, preventative care, and grooming. Her hobbies outside of work include swimming, going to amusement parks, and especially horseback riding. Kristin boards her horse, Rosie (pictured), at Garrod Farms in Saratoga and rides nearly every evening. Kristin also has a 13 year old daughter, Savannah, and 3 cats; Harley, Raven, and Braxton. Kristin was born and raised right here in the Bay Area.
I graduated in 2013 from the National University of Life and Environmental Sciences of Ukraine in Kiev. I wanted to be a veterinarian since childhood. I have a dog, but it lives with my mother in Ukraine. I like sports (bicycling, hiking, swimming), handmade jewelry, and cooking. I also like to spend my time with my family.
Veterinary Tech. Assistant
Alyssa’s passion for animals started at very young age, she always knew she wanted to work with animals. She started school to become a veterinary technician at 18 and started her first Job in the Veterinary field in 2011 . She graduated from the Carrington College Veterinary Technician program in 2013, the same year that she joined the Serra Veterinary Hospital team. The family environment and genuine care that the pets receive here is why she knew that this hospital was a great fit for her. When Alyssa isn’t at the clinic she has her hands full with a toddler, 4 dogs and cat.
I’ve grown up with animals my whole life, and knew at a young age I wanted to work with them. I enrolled at Animal Behavior College in 2016 and obtained my Vet Assistant Certificate through their online course. I enjoy working in the back with the animals, and also being at the front desk, interacting with clients. I have a German Shepherd, Samantha, and a chinchilla, Chilipepper. Aside from spending time with them, I love trips to the beach, family time, and movie nights.
I was born and grew up in Colombia. I originally went to school to be a graphic designer and fashion designer. Since I was little I have felt a great love for all animals big and small. While I lived in Colombia, I volunteered in different foundations dedicated to rescuing animals. I used my house during that time for caring for many dogs and cats while finding them a permanent home.
In the summer of 2017 I moved to California and decided to pursue a new career focused on my passion for animals. I received a Veterinary Assistant certificate from Gavilan College, where I was at the top of my class. As part of the program, I was able to work for a week at Gilroy Veterinary hospital, shortly after I started to work at Serra Veterinary Hospital. I have 2 beautiful Dachshunds, Draco and Lilo.
In my personal life, I like to walk and jog in the mornings. I enjoy nature, traveling, and learning, but what I love most is helping, treating, and serving the animals here at Serra Veterinary Hospital.
Dr. Gilbert has been with us since 2014. He is the official furry ambassador for the hospital and is always here to welcome your pets and give them lots of love and attention during their stay with us.
