Mia

Mia

Certified Veterinary Technician, Inventory Manager & Fear Free Certified Professional

Mia was born and raised in Israel. The job that made her begin her veterinary path was an assistant job in a large veterinary hospital in Israel. She had no prior experience working with animals, but once she started, she realized that this was what she was meant to do.

In 2012, her little family (her husband Ran and her golden retriever Messi) relocated from Israel to San Francisco. During the 4 years she was there, she completed her Veterinary Technology degree at San Juan College, earning her Certified Veterinary Technician license. She worked as a veterinary technician at San Francisco Animal Care and Control. Even though it was very emotional work at times, dealing with abused or neglected animals, she loved working at the shelter, especially when she was able to treat wildlife:  baby owls, raccoons, skunks, and even seagulls​!

In 2016, Mia and her family relocated to Portland and she joined Gladstone Veterinary Clinic. They fell in love with the small town vibe and all of the beautiful nature that surrounds Portland. In her spare time, Mia enjoys watching movies, reading sci-fi and fantasy books, and spending quality time with her family (both 2-legged and 4-legged).

Veterinary Assistant & Fear Free Certified Professional

Kendra hails from the East Coast and joined the GVC family in April 2019. Kendra grew up on her family’s Morgan horse farm in western New Jersey where she was exposed to not only horses, but a variety of dogs, cats, chickens, pheasants, peacocks, and all sorts of wildlife with whom they shared their land. Kendra adopted a senior Lhasa Apso mix named Rocky after graduating from Colgate University. After Rocky was diagnosed with cancer, her interests turned towards animal welfare and veterinary medicine. She then worked in the admissions department at the Animal Care Centers of NYC, the only open admissions animal shelter in the city. While working there, she became interested in becoming part of a veterinary team that provided care, comfort, and relief to the ill and injured animals that came through the shelter’s doors. After a 2900-mile road trip, she is now thrilled to be a veterinary assistant at GVC. Her interests include walking her senior pug/Chihuahua mix Bebe (adopted during her time at ACC), exploring Portland, and listening to music.

Vanessa also enjoys reading, renovating her home and spending time in nature.
Bosco

Bosco

Chief Feline Officer

Bosco came to Gladstone Vet Clinic with a urinary obstruction ​and was surrendered to us in 2009. He won our hearts with his outgoing and vocal personality, and we realized he was here to stay. He has taken on the role of CFO (chief feline officer). He spends his days supervising our practice manager, attending meetings, and he is always on the lookout for snacks. He also enjoys napping with team members during their lunch breaks. On occasion, he is asked to lend a paw in demonstrating how to administer oral medications or subcutaneous fluids, a favor for which he is richly rewarded.
JuneBug

JuneBug

Director of Fun

JuneBug is a basset hound-shar pei mix (long body, short legs, and a bunch of extra skin) who was rescued off the streets of Northern California. As Dr. ten Broeke’s personal assistant, she comes to work every day and cannot wait to greet all of her co-workers each morning. When days become stressful or sad, she is always ready to give a consoling hug, or participate in a game of “stretchy-face” or fetch. “Throw the ball! It will make you feel better!” She is also “certified” in acupressure, and is convinced that having her 65-lb body sitting on you will bring you joy and peace, and it’s true.
