Brandon 
Brandon - Senior Veterinary Assistant
Animals have always been a part of Brandon's life, but after watching a friends dog get hit by a car with no one knowing what to do, he decided that he never wanted to stand by helplessly again and found his future profession.  Brandon is a native Ohioan and he comes from a very large and close family.  He is partial to large breed dogs such as German Shepherds, Great Danes, Labs and Pit Bulls because, in his own words, "...they are goofballs like me". 

Brandon has been studying at Cleveland State and Case Western University with the goal of becoming a vet with his own practice.  In his spare time (what there is of it), Brandon loves fishing, motorcycles, and working on cars and car audio systems.  He enjoys Scrubs and is a fan of the Indiana Jones series of movies.  He's a great cook and in the summer often finds happiness at his grill. 

Brandon shares his life with 3 dogs, Shelby, Nadia and Neesie and 3 cats, Nate, Norman and Nikki. 

 

Danielle - Vet Tech
Growing up in Michigan, Danielle always knew that her career would focus on animals and after two years of school she earned her Associates of Specialized Science at Vet Tech Institute.  She plans to continue studying to keep up to date with advances in veterinary medicine and strives to be the best she can be each day. 

Danielle currently shares her life with her husband and their three pets - Ruby the Dachshund, Roy the Lab Mix and Meela the cat.  One of her main passions in life is horses - over the years they have taught her patience, kindness and understanding.  



Corey - Veterinary Assistant
Corey was raised with animals around so when a position became available that allowed him to work with animals he jumped at the chance.  He feels a particular kinship with cats, who share some of his favorite activities, eating and sleeping!  In fact, Corey shares his life with his four cats: Buddy, Little Buddy, Mittens and Kasse.

In his spare time he enjoys watching movies, TV shows such as "Lost" and "Prison Break" and loves cooking.  He is currently studying at Tri-C with plans to become a filmmaker.  


 

Dianna - Veterinary Technician
A career in the veterinary field was always something that interested Dianna.  During her undergraduate studies she determined that the perfect job for her would be as a Veterinarian Technician, so after earning her BS in Small Animal Studies from Delaware Valley College she earned her certification. 

Dianna's main interest is animal behavior.  She hopes to help people find effective ways to "fix" problems that arise with animal companions instead of relinquishing them to a shelter.  Dianna loves all animals, which led her to become a vegan, but she does feel particularly drawn to cats.  Her animals are her babies and she would like Rainbow clients to know that she'll treat their animals just like her own. 

Dianna shares her life with her husband Seth, 2 dogs (Linus and Lucy), 7 cats (Dmetri, Sugar Bear, Moby, Monet, Marbles, Uno and Calla), 3 goats (Colonel, Sylvester and Merlin) and 3 pot-bellied pigs (Pepe, Paris and Louie).  In her spare time she enjoys hiking with her dogs, photography and watching one of her favorite programs on TV (CSI Las Vegas and NY) or the movie Grease. 

Dianna's favorite quote is "The greatness of a nation and it's moral progress can be judged by the way it's animals are treated" - Gandhi. 

 

Elspeth - Veterinary Assistant  
Elspeth has always loved being around animals - wildlife, horses and of course cats and dogs.  She grew up in Tallahassee Florida, attended college in Massachusetts where she earned her BA in History and French and is currently studying at Cleveland State with the hope of eventually becoming a vet.  

Elspeth has lived in San Francisco, New Zealand, Australia, Taiwan and now lives in Little Italy with her boyfriend Greg and dog Betty, who was adopted in Taiwan.  A true lover of travel she particularly enjoys trying new foods in the places she visits.  When she isn't studying or working, she enjoys swimming, hiking and camping as well as watching the original Star Wars Trilogy. 

Elspeth would like Rainbow clients to know that she loves working with animals.  It makes her really happy to be able to hug so many dogs and cats every day :-)

 

Kathy - Receptionist 
Kathy has always had animals in her life and is deeply devoted to them.  This commitment to their health and well-being was one of the things that inspired her to seek employment in the animal care industry.  She currently shares her life with 5 cats:  14 year old Midnight, 7 year old Jenny, 6 year old Mallory, 4 year old Tally Jo and 4 year old Cali Marie; her dog, Baby, who is a 13 year old lab shepherd mix, her father, Al Sr. and her brother David. 

Kathy enjoys attending church, traveling, playing games, reading, crafts, computer and snuggling with her furry kids.  Her current favorite TV show is "Suits" and "Dr. Zhivago" is her favorite movie.

Kathy would like Rainbow clients to know that she loves all animals and that she treats each patient like her own; - her goal is to help clients through all the stages of caring for their pets.   

 

Kim - Veterinary Assistant 
Kim grew up in Manchester, MD (a small town outside of Baltimore) and attended the University of MD and holds a BS in physiology/neurobiology. She is currently working on a masters degree in social work at Case Western University.

A devout animal lover, Kim has a special way with cats and currently shares her home with 4 cats - Coda (a tortie), Quinn (an orange tabby), Hans (white and orange) and Greta (a dilute calico) who she regards as her kids. Kim is an insatiable reader, enjoys research and is a warm weather person who loves the sun, beach, ocean and the Galápagos Islands.

 


Kristen - Veterinary Assistant
Kristen was inspired to choose a career in animal care by her family's love for their pets - they always had at least two to take care of at any given time. When she isn't working or focusing on building the skills she will need to eventually become a vet tech, Kristen enjoys attending Cleveland sporting events, traveling and cooking.  Her favorite TV show is "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" and her all time favorite movie is "Pulp Fiction". 

Kristen would like Rainbow clients to know that she treats patients that come in just like they are her own - with love and care.

Kwame - Receptionist
Kwame grew up in Ohio on the east side.  She currently shares her life with her two sons, grandchildren, Yorkie Jax, Shih Tzu Jinx and two fish.  When she isn't spending time with her family Kwame enjoys shopping and movies (her favorites are "Urban Cowboy" and "Coal Miner's Daughter"). 

Kwame would like everyone to know that she is easy going and always willing to help. 

Maria - Office Manager
Originally a westsider, Maria moved and now calls Willowick home. She shares her life with her two children, Kelsey and Matthew.  Maria absolutely adores dogs and has three of her own - a Lab named Lucky, a Rottweiler mix named Marlin and a Chow mix named Maddie.  She also has 2 cats, Snickers and Tommy.  Maria has always been a big fan of Siberian Huskies and Labrador Retrievers and enjoys spending time with her family when she is not working.

Mary- Veterinary Assistant
Initially planning on a career in neuropsychology, Mary discovered that her true career path was the veterinary field after spending time volunteering at a shelter and fostering animals.  She holds a BA in Psychology and English from the University of Notre Dame and her long term goal is to attend vet school.

Mary grew up right here in Cleveland Heights and currently shares her home with two human roommates, a lab collie mix named Wrigley and a cat named Phyllis. While Mary feels a special connection to dogs, she is looking forward to learning about all companion animals.

When she's not studying, Mary enjoys reading, staying active and cheering on the Fighting Irish.  She would like Rainbow clients to know that she feels that it will be a privilege to get to know all of them and their pets. 



Stinky Al - Superhero in Charge of Food Security
Stinky Al Jose is the original clinic cat at Rainbow Veterinary Clinic.  He has lived here since the summer that we opened our stationary clinic.  He loves to guard the reception desk and greet clients and pets as they come in.  He also loves stretching out in the sun, and has a very rigid napping schedule in various locations around the clinic.  Few know that Stinky Al also possesses a number of super powers.  His keen sense of hearing (compared to that of a bat by many) allows him to hear the food cabinet open no matter how deeply he is sleeping or how focused he is on greeting visitors.  Stinky Al’s lightning speed allows him to seemingly materialize anywhere food is, even if the payoff is just a single spilled kibble.
