Lucille Tse, RVTI recently became a Registered Veterinary Technician while working for a previous veterinary clinic and learned many skills. I yearned for more knowledge so I decided to join South Bay Animal Hospital and Pet Resort. I have been having a great time being part of the amazing staff at our hospital and operating the amazing equipment that we have especially the in-house blood test machines. On my days off, I like to read materials to gain knowledge of up-to-date veterinary technician information. When I have read too much, my cat Rasa Libre (DSH), my kitten Rocky Horror (DSH, three-legged, polydactyl), and my tarantula Cling-On (14 years old) will let me know it is time to hangout! I like to hangout with friends and family in the kitchen while we are cooking something up during a conversation. I also like to stay active with fitness or busy exploring locations big and small. One day, I hope to specialize in Clinical Pathology as I love looking at blood samples.
Valerie Figone, RVTAnimals have always been a passion of mine. I have been working in the animal care field for 15 years, from running doggie daycare and boarding facilities to Animal Control. I decided to pursue a career in Veterinary Technology only about 5 years ago, because I felt I wanted to be more proactive in the care of animals, and am now a Registered Veterinary Technician. Although right now I primarily work with dogs and cats, reptiles and exotics are my passion. I someday hope to work in an exotics-only hospital. I also happen to own a reptile business outside of working at the vet hospital. I currently own about 60 reptiles, a guinea pig named Meatball, and my dog Mira, pictured with me.

Emergency Registered Veterinary TechnicianEver since I was a young girl, I knew my passion was being in the presence of animals. Today I am living my dream by working as a veterinary technician and helping our doctors keep our pets healthy and happy. I can not imagine doing anything else. I attended Foothill college and graduated from their veterinary technology program in 2011. I then later received by California license as a registered veterinary technician in 2012. My areas of interest are emergency medicine and preventative care. I am bilingual, and thoroughly enjoy translating to Spanish speakers. When I am not working, I am at home in the company of my husband, wild toddler child, and two domestic short hair cats named Pepe and Frida.
Emergency TechnicianTaking care of animals has always been something I've loved doing, no matter what the task is. This is likely the reason why I have been a veterinary technician since 2003. I work in South Bay Animal Hospital's Emergency Department, but when I am not at the hospital, I like to hike, craft, read, enjoy outdoor activities, tinker with gadgets and see how stuff works in my spare time. I currently only have one wonderful cat right now, but I have kept and worked with many assorted types of animals (from insects to exotics, wildlife to livestock).

Technician AssistantI have been working with animals for about 4 years now and I am one of the lucky people who can get to say that they love going to work!
