Danyelle, Veterinary Assistant

Hi my name is Danyelle, I have lived in Sacramento my whole life. I have grown up with dogs, cats, fish, and small animals. I currently have one dog, a mouse, a bird, a cat and fish. I went to CRC in the RVT program and graduated 2 years ago. I'm working on taking my nationals for my license. I love all things Disney and I love to read.

Jessica, Veterinary Assistant

I've had a passion for animals since a young age. I grew up with dogs in the household at all times. A few years ago, I decided to pursue my passion by working with dogs at a boarding/training facility and loved my time there, but wanted to focus on animal healthcare. I joined Mercy Pet Hospital in the summer of 2014 and worked as a  client care representative and now work as a veterinary assistant. I plan on continuing my education in the veterinary field in the near future. I have three fur babies at home to keep me on my toes: a dachshund named Niko, a chihuahua name Sophie and my newest addition, a kitten named Wonky. I enjoy spending my free time with my family, boyfriend, and watching/rooting for my favorite Pittsburgh sports teams whenever I can.


Alex, Veterinary Assistant

I grew up in the Bay Area and moved to the Sacramento Area in 2009 to attend school. By 2013 I graduated from UC Davis with a degree in biomedical engineering but after working a short time in industry it was clear that sitting at a desk full time is not for me. I decided to pursue a career in veterinary medicine and hope to attend vet school in the next few years. I am currently taking classes to work toward that goal and have been fortunate enough to work with the incredible doctors and staff at Mercy while doing so. In my free time I enjoy backpacking, hiking, kayaking, mountain biking, and pretty much anything outdoors. At home I have two chinchillas, and African ball python, and two very clever working dogs to keep me on my toes.

Cheyne, Veterinary Assistant

I am originally from Grass Valley but just recently moved to the Sacramento area to attend school to become an RVT. I have one dog Riker, a Great Dane German Shepherd Mix. He is a little wild but I couldn't ask for a better friend. I have three loving cats named Prince, Blurr, and Atticus. Also, I just got a cockatiel named Syd who loves to sing while biting me. Going to work at Mercy Pet Hospital is always enjoyable because I get to meet precious pets and wonderful clients. Pets make life great and I can't wait to meet yours.

Amanda, Lead Technician

Amanda has worked in the veterinary field since 2010, and at our hospital since early 2013. She grew up with a fascination and deep passion for animals. As a child she Idolized Steve Irwin and would never dream of missing an episode of Emergency Vets. It was always obvious to her that she would dedicate her life to helping animals in any was possible, this decision prompted her to adopt a vegan lifestyle and apply for her first veterinary position at age 17. Her compassion shows through the level of care and understanding she provides our clients and patients during their visits. In the future she plans to continue her work in the field and hopes to eventually work with wildlife as well as domestic animals. In her free time, you will find her photographing her adventures with her Australian Shepherd, Lilith, cozying up with one (or all three) of her rescued cats, Bronson, Leeloo, and Doc, or maybe just having a conversation with her African Grey parrot Ilene!

Wendy, RVT

In the fourth grade I knew I wanted to be an animal nurse. Loving Animals in in my blood which was nurtured by my parents. I don't mind drool, odors, loud screeches or long talks about your fur/feather baby. I believe all animals deserve respect and encourage preventive measures. I have over 15 years veterinary experience with small animals and in 2011 became a registered veterinary technician. I enjoy taking my beloved Aphrodite everywhere! She goes to A's baseball games, the beach, trick-or-treating, and on vacation. Halloween is my favorite time of the year.

 Erin, Veterinary Assistant

I came to Mercy Pet Hospital from Sonoma County where I worked in a small animal / exotic clinic as an assistant. I joined the veterinary field after being retired from a career in Law Enforcement. I enjoy working with people and helping their pets. during my free time, I enjoy spending time with my Border Collie / Aussie mix named Faith, and I volunteer as a peer counselor with a program called the First Responders Network (West Coast Post Trauma Retreat) that specializes in helping first responders who are dealing with the effects of PTSD.
