Makayla is a veterinary assistant and loves every animal. She is going to college to get her veterinary technician degree. She owns two birds, a dog, and two cats.

She loves working at Grand Valley Veterinary Hospital because everyone takes great care of the animals and everyone is super nice.



My name is Ashley, I grew up in Mentor, Ohio but now live in Rome after meeting my fiancé. Although my life took an unexpected turn, my love for all animals has never wavered. I have two spoiled tabby cats, a cane corso, and a flock of ducks in my little family.

Although I have experience as a caregiver for people through my work as a STNA, my true love is caring for animals. I would love to pursue a career where I can help animals on a daily basis through things like veterinary assisting or animal rescue.
