Muscle Car Maven with a Knack for Caring

yolie-access

Yolie has worked at ACCESS Specialty Animal Hospital Los Angeles for eight years and in that time she’s been a receptionist, doctor’s assistant, and most importantly—compassionate. She loves muscle cars and even used to legally race her raised Mustang, having to replace her tires often due to the wear and tear from showing it off! Knowing all of that, we just had to learn more about her!

How did Yolie decide to work in veterinary medicine?
Yolie’s best friend’s husband worked at ACCESS and told her she absolutely had to check it out. Eight years later and she still loves it! 

Why did she choose Neurology?
Yolie likes that Neurology is something completely different that many people don’t know about. She enjoys being able to learn more about this specific specialty.

What brought Yolie to ACCESS?
After having such a strong recommendation from her friend, Yolie saw the opportunity for growth with the company and that’s what sold her. “Everyone is about growing your career here and pushing you to reach your highest potential. The doctors want to teach the staff. That’s powerful.”

What is her favorite animal and why?
“I love fat cats! When they’re cranky they’re just misunderstood.” 

Does Yolie collect anything?
Yolie is a major Hello Kitty fan. She has dozens of memorabilia ranging from blankets and bobble heads to hair brushes and sporks! She loves the adorable cartoon cat so much that she looks forward to attenting Hello Kitty events . Yolie also loves sneakers and has about 20 pairs!

What would she be doing if she weren’t with ACCESS?
Yolie truly loves helping others and can see herself being a Nurse in pediatric oncology or working with special needs children.

What is Yolie’s favorite meal and what is the best thing she cooks?
Yolie loves anything spicy and loves to cook fish ceviche for her friends and family.

What is her favorite subject in neurology?\
Yolie finds seizures to be an interesting subject. She loves educating her clients about how to care for their seizuring pet.

Yolie’s advice to pet owners:
“Research pet insurance companies and read the fine print to ensure you’re covered based on your needs. It’s also it also important not to always rely on Google for all your questions, your specialist is your best source.”

Yolie greets every day with a sense of focused optimism and we are so thankful to have the chance to work with her. Be sure to stop and chat with Yolie about fat cats, Hello Kitty, or souped-up cars the next time you see her!

Tails from the Road – Tech Life at Mt. SAC

ACCESS department leads Kristine Snow and Karina Gomez spoke at Mt. SAC about life as RVTs to a group of students in the tech program.

They spoke about their respective fields if interest and also about what they look for in employees who join us. They gave out tips and advice and the students eagerly soaked up what they could. Maybe they will come work with us one day! We will surely be back to talk to more students too in the future.
