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 tabby baby, Tinkerbell. I love working with cats and feel honored to experience meeting owners who love and adore their feline friends as much as I do.
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.
Rachel Stanko, Licensed Veterinary Technician, Team Member since 2017: I had no animal medical history at all, but I knew I wanted to be a vet tech since I took a career test in middle school. During my classes at Baker College, I completed an internship at another cat clinic and was hooked before I graduated in 2014After getting married, I decided to leave the small animal practice I was at and pursue a career in just feline medicine, and I am loving it! There's just something so rewarding and challenging about cats.
I personally have 3 cats: Zoey, Bosco, and Kitten. They are looked over by my rescue dog Winry and "little brother" Gwapo.
Michelle Vidor, Veterinary Assistant and Receptionist, Team Member since 2018: I started working as a veterinary assistant/receptionist at Cat Care in 2018 but started working in the veterinary field in 2014, after receiving my veterinary assistant certification from Ross medical the same year. Before starting in the veterinary field, I worked as an EMT and for a medical monitoring company. I enjoy being able to help people but have always had a special place in my heart for animals, especially cats. I recently lost a cat I had had since she was 6 weeks old to oral cancer. It was very difficult to lose her after 15 years but now I am lucky enough to have Charlie, a great cat who I first met when she was just a few weeks old who officially became my little girl this past October at 6 months of age.
Andrew Wroblewski, Licensed Veterinary Technician, Team Member since 2018: I have always been an animal person. Growing up I had a variety of pets ranging from cats and dogs to lizards and guinea pigs. I became an LVT because it combined two of my passions: medicine and animals.
