Our Staff

Certified Veterinary Technicians


Lori, Certified Veterinary Technician

Lori joined Aloha Dog and Cat back in 2014, and we are so lucky to have her wealth of experience and knowledge. Lori is a graduated of PCC, earning her AAS in Veterinary Technology in 1981. She’s been working as a veterinary technician ever since! Her special areas of interest at work include surgery, behavior/training as well as orthopedics and radiology. Outside of work, Lori continues her passion for working with animals through her Bernese Mountain Dog, Piper. Piper is quite talented and participates in agility, nose work, therapy, and obedience! Lori is a member of HOPE-Animal assisted crises response which provides working dogs to comfort people in crisis or first responder post crises situations. Lori and Piper also participate in Pet Partners, which is an animal assisted therapy organization that allow them to visit hospitals, rehab and memory care facilities, and schools! They are a busy team and provide so much back to our community! Somehow Lori still finds time to also spend time with her family which includes a husband Paul, two adult children and a cat, Marley, as well as an African Grey Parrot, Poco.


Mackenzie, Certified Veterinary Technician

Mackenzie is a born and raised Oregonian, and we are so lucky to have all her skills here at ADCH. She’s a graduate of Sanford Brown College Veterinary Technology Program and received an outstanding student award in her graduating class. Her favorite things about being a CVT are assisting with surgery/anesthesia, gross abscesses (really, Mackenzie?) and she also has a growing interest in internal medicine somewhat due to her wonderful French Bulldog, Bacon Bits and his many interesting medical conditions. Outside of work, McKenzie loves training Bacon to do tricks, he already has his “Novice Trick Dog” title! And she loves spending time with family and friends. In addition to Bacon, Mackenzie also has 2 adorable cats, Cheeto and Boo.


Marian, Certified Veterinary Technician

Marian joined Aloha Dog and Cat in 1995, making her another of our most dedicated employees. Marian has interests in many areas of veterinary medicine, but is usually our go-to person for cytology, or for the random injured bird or other wildlife, as she is extremely knowledgeable with many species besides dogs and cats. She has a small farm with goats, dogs, cats, a variety of poultry, and a horse!

Veterinary Support and Administration


Emily, Receptionist

Emily is one of our very dedicated and hard working receptionists, and has been an amazing member of our team since 2015! Emily loves being able to work with our clients and has a great wealth of knowledge from both her experience at work, and also her experience with her own pets who have had some interesting and very educational medical needs! Emily really enjoys being able to use that experience to help educate and bond with clients and their pets.

Emily is another Oregon native, and has two very sweet Italian Greyhounds which can sometimes be found under the desks in reception! When she’s not busy here at the clinic, Emily loves camping and hiking and enjoying some of the delicious food the Portland area has to offer.


Kelsey, Technician assistant

Kelsey is another one of our hard working assistants. She is a master at working at all the “behind the scenes” things our clinic needs to function well. A master of the autoclave and our in house technical support, she wears many hats well. Kelsey also enjoys radiology (X-rays) and improving the lives our patients. When not at work Kelsey enjoys reading, watching baking shows and attempting to bake.


Sandra, Practice Manager

Sandra hails from Wisconsin, but we try not to hold that against her, as she seems to genuinely love Oregon as her second home. As our Practice Manager she wears numerous hats and does it all with grace and a great sense of humor. Her favorite things about working with our clients is seeing every day how kind and thoughtful they can be, and she loves being able to partner with them in their care. Plus how adorable the pets all are makes it extra worth it! She also appreciates our great staff full of experienced, talented, supportive doctors and technicians, assistants and receptionists, and is grateful and proud to be part of the ADCH team.

In her free time, Sandra loves the outdoor adventures Oregon has to offer and is often found out with her dogs Gracie (12 yr old Rottweiler mix) and Ginger (4 yr old English Setter) hiking trails, kayaking or doing some stand up paddle boarding.


Wyonia, Receptionist/Certified Veterinary Technician

Wyonia joined Aloha Dog and Cat in 1986, making her one of our longest employed staff members! Around the hospital Wyonia is affectionately known as our “cat whisperer”, as she really has a way with those of the feline persuasion. She also really values developing relationships with our clients and spending time getting to know them and their pets. Outside of work, Wyonia is quite a movie fan, and also loves collecting new and interesting jewelry. She has 2 cats, Ozzie and Layla.
