If you’ve got a pet that speaks Japanese, you’re in luck. We’ve got a veterinary assistant who’s studying the language. Her name is Tatiana, and she’s also a skateboarder and an anime fan. If your pet is into those things, we’ve got you covered there, too.

Tatiana loves working with our patients. She helps make sure they’re comfortable and happy during their visit to the hospital. One of her favorite parts of the job is walking the dogs and spending time with the cats. For Tatiana, it’s rewarding that she knows she’s doing something to help treat animals.

Growing up, Tatiana’s interest in animal care came from her Aunt, who is a veterinarian. But if you’ve been around her enough, you’ll learn that she’s a bit of a jokester. She gets that from her dad. Tatiana is a big fan of the show “Impractical Jokers,” and she can’t help but play her own practical joke on someone every now and again, so watch out!

For now, professional jokester isn’t on her list of future endeavors, but Tatiana does know that she wants to either work with animals, work with children or translate Japanese. We think she’ll be fantastic at any one of those (but secretly we’re rooting for “work with animals”).
