    Veterinary Technician

    Micky has been working in the veterinary field for 13 years and brings a wealth of experience to Oakcrest Pet Hospital.  Her favorite aspect of veterinary medicine is performing dental cleanings on pets.  She says, 'There is nothing better than scaling tartar and seeing the teeth become white again!'  Micky has a soft spot for pets with special needs and has always been dedicated to giving these pets the best lives possible.  In fact, she currently cares for her own cat, Beatle, who is completely blind.  While Beatle does well finding his way around the apartment, Micky has worked on training him and making the place more accommodating to his needs.

  • Ashley A

  • Natalie G
    Veterinary Technician

    Natalie's love for animals started at an early age when she asked her parents for a cow on her third birthday.  They refused to give her one, and she didn't understand why!  Years later, she was able to talk them into a pet, but she had to settle for a dog instead.  Now Natalie gets to see all kinds of animals as she works as a veterinary technician at Oakcrest Pet Hospital.  She joined the team after moving to Wichita from El Paso, TX.  She is still getting used to the cooler temperatures in Kansas, but she says she has enjoyed all the new experiences here, including getting a new dog named Marvin!
