Amethyst is the proud veterinary technician here at Clearlake Animal Hospital. She started her path in November of 2011 as the kennel technician, and over the years her interest in the field grew as she did. Her motivation and knowledge continue to grow every day, knowing that each pet that comes her way is in good hands. Outside of work, Amethyst’s main motivation comes from being with her daughter, Amelia, and watching her grow and learn things as well. She also loves doing anything related to the outdoors, whether it be camping, canoeing, air boating, four wheeling, volleyball on the beach, etc. You can assume she is one who is not afraid to get her hands dirty.
