Vicki Mastny, Licensed Veterinary Technician, Team member since 2014: I have been in the veterinary field for twenty years and I don't regret a day that I came into this profession; I love my job. I worked at a dog/cat practice for 17 years before joining Cat Care. I had always enjoyed taking the cat appointments at my previous position, so now I get to enjoy my job even more.
I have a Labrador at home as well as two wonderful cats. Panda is a domestic long hair, who is beautiful and affectionate. There is Pickles who is more clumsy then you would think a cat should be, but just as loveable as he throws himself to the ground to have his belly rubbed.
Outside of work, I love gardening in the summer and reading in the winter. I also love to travel. I have been to some amazing places and hope I can continue to visit new places in the future.
Lynn Birr, Licensed Veterinary Technician, Team member since 2008: I graduated from the Veterinary Technician program at Macomb Community College and have been working with animals for over ten years. My very first job was at Best Friends Pet Resort; I was there for five years. After I left Best Friends, I got my first job at a veterinary clinic as an assistant. I absolutely fell in love with helping nurse animals back to health. I enjoyed working with cats and wanted to pursue working in a feline only clinic which lead me to Cat Care.
My husband and I have three furry children; my oldest is Roscoe, who is a Siberian Husky. Hooie looks like a Maine Coon and is the middle child. Last but not least is the baby, Tinkerbell. She is a domestic medium hair.
I love working with cats and feel honored to experience meeting owners who love and adore their feline friends as much as I do.
Amanda Dabaldo, Licensed Veterinary Technician, Team Member since 2016: Ever since childhood my greatest passion has been helping animals. So it came as no surprise to my family and friends when I decided to become a Licensed Veterinary Technician. I graduated in 2002 from Macomb Community College. Since graduation, I have worked with marine mammals and aquatic life in Hawaii, exotic and endangered species at the Detroit Zoological Society, as well as companion animal at local animal hospitals. My favorite animal to work with has always been cats (both large and small). So, working at Car Care is a purrfect fit (pun intended).
Carol Suggs, Receptionist, Team member since 2007: My love for animals has been in my blood since I can remember. I have three cats; Nikko is my Japanese Bobtail, Leo is my brown tabby and Emily is my sassy tortie. I also have a Labrador mix and two 2-footed children, Connor and Jack. I love working here and I feel lucky to have an extended family with all of our feline patients.
My kids, 4-footed and 2-footed, keep me pretty busy and I am never lonely; there's always a cat handy for a lap visit!
I look forward to caring for your furry friends as if they were my own!
Kaitlyn Fyfe, Veterinary Assistant and Receptionist, Team Member since 2016: For as long as I can remember, I have always had a passion for working with animals. I graduated in 2009 with a Degree in Animal Management. I started working at an animal shelter in Niagara Falls, NY – this is where I developed a love for working with cats, and also where I adopted my two furbabies: Dewey and Bella Bean. After that, I worked at different veterinary clinics. In October of 2015, I followed my heart and moved to Michigan to live with my boyfriend and eventually found my way onto the Cat Care team. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my cats, relaxing, working out, and traveling. I love being weird and making people laugh.
Megan Zeglin, Veterinary Assistant and Receptionist, Team Member since 2016: I went to school at Oakland University and Oakland Community College and graduated with a general studies degree. I have worked with animals for a while now and absolutely love it. I just bought my first house that I share with my two cat children, Hubby (grey tuxedo) and Dr. Sheldon Lee Cooper (grey tabby). When I am not at work I enjoy hiking at the different state parks and spending time outdoors.
Hayley Carpenter, Practice Manager, Team member since 2014: I graduated from Michigan State University with a Bachelor's of Science in Zoology. Taking care of all of our feline patients is rewarding and engaging, and meeting everyone's furry family members is my favorite part of my job.
I have two cats (right now): Nymeria and Ghost. They are a handful and get into trouble on a daily basis, but I couldn't see my life without them. I also have a dog named Lilo, who believes she is a cat.
When I'm not caring for kittens at Cat Care, I like to cook and play with my kittens at home. I like snow, the color green (Go State!), and biking.
