Our Support Staff

Adora

Hospital Practice Manager

Adora joined NDCH in March 2021. She was born in the Philippines but grew up in Southern California. She moved to Central Coast back in 2012 and fell in love with the area. She found passion in leading and motivating others, so she sought a career in management in which she has more than a decade-long extensive background! Adora believes in building a unified team in order to create an efficient and compassionate environment for our patients and their owners. She believes the veterinary field to be a very rewarding place especially that she is surrounded by all these amazing fur babies! She has an adorable and fluffy chow chow named Bachi! She loves to spend time with her husband and son.  She loves to hike with family and friends every weekend, go on roadtrips, and sing karaoke!

Karen is a Registered Veterinary Technician who has been working in the veterinary field for the past 30 years. She graduated from Western Career College and passed her state board exam in 1991. Originally from Northern California, Karen made her way to the Central Coast 7 years ago and fell in love. She joined the NDCH team in 2016 and we can’t imagine working without her. Her passion for dentistry is infectious and invaluable. Even after 30 years in the profession, she’s never lost her love and compassion for the special animals in her care. In her spare time, Karen loves hiking, walking on the beach and spending time with her husband and their little Chihuahua mix, Gloria. Karen also volunteers for the Children’s Ministries at New Life church in Pismo.

She left her career in the luxury jewelry industry to follow her passion – animals!

Shawna’s favorite things are the beach, her Dad’s apple pie, visiting the Czech Republic, and her dogs Ginger and Georgia Clooney.

Before working with NDCH, she worked at Petco for two years. While working there she started off as a dog trainer and soon after that, she became part of the management team. Jazmine is using her animal and dog training knowledge to help her with working at NDCH. It has always been one of her dream career to be in the veterinary field. She believes this is a great start and is hopeful to, one day, move her way up.

Libby is on the Board of Directors for AINF, maintains the AINF social media and webpage, and co-directs the AINF/Petco cat adoption project.

Elizabeth

Room Nurse

Elizabeth is a Central Coast native and Cal Poly graduate with a degree in Animal Science. In 2014, she became part of the Nipomo Dog and Cat team.

She also enjoys traveling, camping, photography, going to the movies and crocheting.

Amanda

Room Nurse

Born and raised in Santa Maria, Amanda joined our team in 2019.  Her matter-of-fact yet easy-going attitude make her a wonderful addition to our pharmacy team.  Since childhood, Amanda has been passionate about working with animals; she loves them of all shapes and sizes, including pocket pets and reptiles!  As an adult, she aspires to become a Registered Veterinary Technician so she can continue working with animals every day!  Regardless of her love for exotics, Amanda’s fur family includes dogs (Eevee and Lilo) and cats (Belle and Oliver) only.  In her free time, Amanda enjoys traveling, going to concerts and trying new foods!

Susan

A Southern California native, Susan was originally a geologist. After moving to Colorado with her family, she discovered the field of veterinary technology and decided to attend tech school.

She is a wonderful addition to our nursing team. When not working at NDCH, Susan keeps busy with her husband and their two young children. Susan enjoys cooking, running and of course, rocks!

Nick

Treatment Co-Lead

Nick joined the Nipomo Dog & Cat team in 2019, bringing with him 8+ years of experience in the veterinary field.  To say Nick loves his job is an understatement.  To say we are fortunate to have him is an understatement as well!  A gentle giant, Nick’s calm, easy-going demeanor is appreciated by both our patients and his co-workers.  A Central Coast resident for over 20 years, Nick shares his home with his wife, Stephanie, their two children and their pets: Virgil the dog, Gracie the cat and three lovable rats!  Outside of work, Nick enjoys spending time with his family, listening to music and attending reggae concerts.

Karissa

Technician Assistant

Karissa became part of the NDCH family in 2019.  As the face of our technician appointments, we hope you will get to know and trust Karissa quickly.  Her positive energy and thirst for knowledge are huge assets to our technical team.  A graduate of the Allan Hancock College Registered Veterinary Technician program, Karissa is actively working toward obtaining her RVT license.  When not working, Karissa spends as much time as possible with her family, especially her young nephew, and her feline fur-baby Kit-Kat.

Danika

Veterinary Assistant

A homegrown Nipomo girl, Danika graduated from Nipomo High School in 2018 and joined us later that same year.  Working at Nipomo Dog & Cat comes naturally for Danika; she has spent her whole life surrounded by animals of all shapes and sizes.  She has shown hogs and turkeys for Nipomo Foothill 4H (winning Grand Champion with her turkey one year!) and proudly carries a flag with her horse for the Elk’s Rodeo in Santa Maria.  Currently her pets include 3 dogs, 2 chickens, 2 horses and a goat.  Danika is grateful for her experiences at NDCH as they prepare her for her dream of becoming a veterinarian, specifically an equine surgeon.  When not at work or school, Danika enjoys spending time with her animal and human family, camping, boating and hiking.

Jenny

Customer Service Representative

Originally from Chicago, Jenny Johnson moved to the central coast in 2016 to live closer to her daughter and son-in-law. She started at Nipomo Dog & Cat Hospital on April 19, 2021. Her dog Henry was a certified Pet Partners Therapy dog for over seven years. They spent their weekends visiting the patients at Hines Veterans Hospital in Chicago to bring comfort and cheer.

Jenny’s long career in customer service and management, along with her love of animals (especially dogs) makes her a perfect fit for the role of Customer Service Representative. She is also a foodie, loves to cook and has a great collection of vintage cookbooks.

Amanda Hensley

Veterinary Assistant

Amanda became one of the newest members of our NDCH family in 2021. She graduated with honors from Cuesta College with her AS in Biology and AA in Science in 2020.

Amanda enjoyed her time at Cuesta college and is still participating in the undergraduate research for the Eelgrass Wasting Disease in the Morro Bay estuary.

She quickly enrolled in the RVT program at Hancock College and started her career at NDCH. Amanda’s interests include fishing, hiking, camping, and hanging out with her husband and dogs. Amanda has been a great addition to our NDCH family. She is a team player and loves to learn!

Shannon

Administrative Assistant

Shannon was born in the Bay Area, but grew up on the Central Coast and joined the Nipomo Dog and Cat team in 2020. While she did not come from a veterinary background, she brought many years of administrative experience. This combined with her tremendous love of animals made her a natural fit for our team.
