Kate, Kennel Attendant/Receptionist

Kate started her Stream Valley journey in August 2020 as a kennel attendant, until she was cross-trained to work both in kennel and as a veterinary assistant.

Kate grew up in Ashburn, where she currently resides, as an only child with two loving parents. Her dog, Lucky, is a 15-year-old schnoodle! Outside of work, Kate enjoys going on long walks and spending time with close friends. She also likes trying new places to eat, wherever that may be. In the future, she hopes to be able to travel a lot someday.

Rachel, Kennel Attendant

Rachel also joined the SVVH kennel team in September of 2021. She is currently attending Northern Virginia Community College, and she plans to transfer to Virginia Tech in the fall of 2023. Her previous experiences in working with animals made her a great fit at our hospital. When she transfers to Virginia Tech, she plans to study Pre-Veterinary Medicine to later get into veterinary school. 

Rachel currently lives with her mom, dad, and sister, and she has an 11-year-old Lab/Bulldog mix named Revis along with a 3-year-old leopard gecko named Dexter. Her mom works as a dog walker, her dad is a salesman, and her sister works for the Washington Nationals. In Rachel's free time, she rides horses, plays video games, and draws. She is learning a bit of coding as well. Her biggest goal is to become an emergency veterinarian, and she will do anything to achieve it.
