Registered Veterinary Technician / Hospital Manager

Nicole always felt drawn to animals and dreamed of one day being able to work with them for a living. Once her children were old enough, she decided to take a leap of faith and follow her dream, going back to school to become a registered veterinary technician. 

Nicole joined the Terra Linda Veterinary Hospital team in October of 2023 and has quickly become an integral and much-loved part of the crew! In her dual role as RVT and Hospital Manager, she enjoys meeting new people and being a voice for pets in need.

Outside of the clinic, Nicole is happily married with two grown children and three furry kids, including a pug named Lola, and two cocker spaniels named Lady Lilith Marie, and Sir Budrick. In her spare time, you can usually find Nicole camping with her husband and the dogs.

While Charlotte certainly had an appreciation for animals growing up, she didn’t necessarily dream of working in the veterinary industry. As is so often the case, however, life just sort of played out that way. Of course, if you asked her now, she’d tell you she can’t imagine being in any other line of work. It was truly meant to be!

Charlotte’s journey of chance began when she was hired as a receptionist at a local animal clinic. As fate would have it, the practice changed hands and several of the staff members moved on, giving Charlotte the opportunity to train as a veterinary assistant. After learning as much as she could there, Charlotte joined the Terra Linda team as a CVA. Clinically, she has a special interest in surgery and dentistry.

At home, Charlotte has a daughter named Ashley and several pets of her own, including a cat named Pistol, a 29-pound Mainecoon named Draco, and a Pomeranian/Yorkie mix named Elliot. On any given day, you may find Draco dragging Elliot around the house by his leash or giving him a piggy-back ride. The term “never a dull moment” is an understatement!

Besides her job and her family (two-legged and four), Charlotte’s other passion is Halloween. Her house has been highlighted countless times on social media as a “must see” holiday attraction. She loves seeing the look of joy on peoples’ faces when they see her decorations. 



Client Service Representative

Ever since Andrea can remember, she’s been passionate about animal welfare. Whether it was putting out food for the neighborhood stray cats or providing them with a makeshift shelter to help protect them from the outside elements, even as a young child, Andrea would do whatever she could to help them. As a CSR here at Terra Linda, Andrea is passionate about being the voice for our furry companions!

Prior to entering the veterinary field, Andrea spent several years in the hospitality industry. Deep down, she always knew that her passion was in animal care. To facilitate her career transition and gain some hands-on experience, Andrea began volunteering for various organizations (SF SPCA, Paws/LA, Beagles and Buddies). In 2011, she finally landed an opportunity working the front desk at a veterinary hospital and has been in a client service role ever since. 

Andrea joined the TLVH team in March of 2015 after she and her husband relocated to Marin County from Los Angeles. The thing that Andrea enjoys most about her job is getting to know the clients and their pets and being a part of their special bond. She also appreciates the opportunity to educate clients on how to provide the best possible care for their furry family members.

Outside of work, Andrea and her husband have a cat named Boots and a Shih-Tzu named Torra. Boots was adopted as a kitten but remains terrified of strangers. In fact, very few friends can claim they’ve actually had a Boots sighting. Torra, on the other hand, is a feisty girl and is attached at the hip to Andrea’s husband. When she’s not working, Andrea enjoys running, hiking, traveling, and spending time with friends.



Client Service Representative

When Kat was a young child, she witnessed firsthand the devastation a parasite infection can have on companion animals. While the situation wasn’t pleasant, it was a learning experience, and it made Kat want to be proactive about helping animals in any way she could. Over the years since, Kat has been able to make a positive impact on the lives of countless pets and their humans!

Kat attended college in southern California, where she took several veterinary courses. After moving to Marin County, she landed a job at a clinic in San Rafael as a veterinary technician. A year or so later, Kat took over the front desk, and twenty years later, she’s now a CSR here at Terra Linda. Professionally, Kat enjoys meeting new people and making sure every visit to the vet is as pleasant and positive as possible.

After losing her 16-year-old mini poodle in December of 2023, Kat decided to take a break from owning a pet, but that’s sure to change at some point in the near future. In the meantime, she keeps herself busy watching sports, listening to music, hanging out with friends, and kayaking. She’s also an avid soccer player, having participated in many state and national tournaments over the 13 years she played formally.



Client Services Representative / Veterinary Assistant

In 2022, Andy was working as a preschool teacher when she began to feel like it wasn’t the right path for her. So, being a natural problem-solver, she sat down, made a list of pros and cons, and realized the veterinary industry would be a better fit. She found a position within one week and hasn’t looked back since!

When she’s not at work, you can usually find Andy in the garden tending to her vegetables. She also enjoys hiking and riding horses.


Veterinary Assistant

From a young age, Liz would go out of her way for any and every animal! As a child, she and her best friend would find baby quail that had been separated from their families and reunite them. As she grew older and entered the working world, Liz felt compelled to follow her childhood passion of working with animals. She became a veterinary assistant and hasn’t looked back since!

Prior to joining the Terra Linda Veterinary Hospital team, Liz had been working standard office jobs, which never gave her that sense of fulfillment she was seeking. She took a leap of faith and made a career pivot and she couldn’t be happier with her decision. Liz started out at the front desk but quickly transitioned to the assistant role because she wanted to be more hands-on with the patients.

Several years ago, Liz and her boyfriend opened their home and their hearts to two male cats: Trouble (a.k.a. “Baby Boy”) and Mayhem (a.k.a. “Baby Kitty”). Trouble is the typical first child—perfect and can do no wrong. Mayhem is quite the opposite—a total disaster…hence the name. In her free time, Liz enjoys hiking and being in nature.
