Veterinary Technicians

She has been working in the field for 3 years and excited to work with the caring and compassionate staff at Randhurst, and hopes to help improve the lives of our patients and clients. In her free time, Liz enjoys movies, reading, board games, and spending time with her husband, son, and two dogs, Tiger and Cody.

Carrie is a CVT that has been practicing since 1998. While the majority of her career was spent in emergency and critical care, she has also spent several years in day practice, radiation oncology, internal medicine and surgery. Her love of animals stems from spending time on her family's dairy farm in Iowa as a child. She currently has 6 animals, (2 of which have two legs and call her mom) and enjoys spending time outside with her family.

Randhurst Animal HospitalJenny

Jenny joined our Randhurst Animal Hospital family in September of 2015. She is very excited to be a part of a veterinary practice again. Her dream has always been to not only work with animals but to help animals as well by delivering excellent patient care. Jenny studied in Bel-rea Institute of Animal Technology in Denver, Colorado and graduated in 2010. In her free time she enjoys spending time with her cat Fabio and her family.

Randhurst Animal HospitalYasmin

Yasmin knew she wanted to be in the veterinary field when she started volunteering at a local animal shelter in Arlington Heights. Therefore, she received a certificate of completion for the Veterinary Assistant Program at Northeastern Illinois University. She is still continuing her education at Northeastern pursuing a bachelors in biology. Then planning on going into Veterinary Technician school. On the side, she waitresses at an Italian Restaurant in Mt. Prospect. She's a dog mom to a 15 year old Jack Russel Terrier named Dexter. On her free time she loves spending time with her family and work out at the gym.

Randhurst Animal HospitalClaudia, CVT

Claudia has been working in the veterinary field since 1994. She is a Certified Veterinary Technician that has mainly worked in Emergency and Critical Care centers throughout the northern and northwest suburbs. Claudia took a 6 year break from veterinary medicine to take up another love in her life, baking. She went to pastry school and is a pastry chef teaching cooking classes at a kitchen store in the northwest suburbs. She is super excited to be back at her first love, veterinary medicine! Claudia shares her home with her husband, endless amounts of kitchen cookware, and 9 very needy living beings.

Randhurst Animal HospitalSheri, CVT, CCRP

Sheri is originally from a small town called Otter Lake in Michigan. She obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology with concentrations in Animal Behavior and Neurobiology from MSU. She then went on to obtain a Bachelor of Science degree in Veterinary Technology through MSU's College of Veterinary Medicine. In between degrees, Sheri volunteered for a Summer in Australia working with Koala rehabilitation, rescues and releases and longs to return for another visit someday. She has 15 years experience working in the veterinary hospital setting, 9 of those years as a CVT. She recently became certified in Canine Rehabilitation through the University of Tennessee's CCRP program. She once had a yellow lab, Luke, who developed orthopedic and neurologic issues as he aged. He is the main reason why she wanted to become certified in rehab so there could be additional options/alternatives available to improve mobility, comfort, and help pets live stronger, healthier lives. She holds a special place in her heart for senior pets and is looking to develop a senior rehabilitation program here at Randhurst Animal Hospital. In her spare time, she enjoys playing video games, watching movies, and relaxing with her husband Layne and her two dogs Gizmo Gremlin and Muggsy Monster.
