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).

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.
