Cathy started working with animals in 1977as a groomer. After grooming for many years, she decided working with animals was to be her life’s passion and attended school to become a veterinary technician. She became a Certified Veterinary Technician in 1983. Since then she spent many years as a emergency technician at a local Emergency Animal Clinic before joining the Camelwest team in 2008. In her free time, Cathy enjoys reading and sharing her home with her seven dogs and two birds.

Client Service Representative
In 2001, Bonnie was given the opportunity to “do something I love” when she joined the Camelwest team. She is our Client Service Representative (CSR), and the part of her job she enjoys the most is caring for all the clients and patients. Bonnie is a native of Arizona, and when not at work enjoys spending time with her husband and young son. Together they have five dogs (including one diabetic terrier).
Certified Veterinary Technicians
Kim graduated with a BA from Penn State University prior to moving to Arizona from upstate New York – she was looking to “escape” the lousy weather! She spent many years in retail management before deciding to follow her dreams and enter the veterinary profession. She went back to college, and in 2011 became a Certified Veterinary Technician. Kim has been a member of the Camelwest team since obtaining her CVT license. She shares her home with a husband, one dog, three cats and a bird.
Elisa began her veterinary career in 2003, working first as a receptionist and then as an assistant as she attended college. She graduated from the College of Southern Nevada in 2008 and passed her national and state “boards” to become a Certified Veterinary Technician. Elisa relocated to Arizona later in 2008 and has been working at Camelwest ever since. She is a CVT member of the Association of Avian Veterinarians. When not at work, Elisa enjoys spending time with her three “4-legged-furry kids” and reading good books.
Majerele the Cat
Majerele the cat became a part of our Camelwest family in the spring of 2011 when he and his siblings were left in a box at our back door. He immediately became a part of the team, and by age six months had appointed himself Hospital Supervisor and Official Greeter. His favorite activities include teasing Abby, sleeping, and sneaking into sections of the clinic that he knows he is not allowed in.
Abby was brought to us in 2011 by a Good Samaritan who had found her mother dead and was worried about the orphaned kittens. Despite her tough start in life, she has flourished and very much enjoys the life of Clinic Cat. Abby obeys rules better than her buddy Majerele, and stays in the back of the clinic where she has appointed herself Quality Control Supervisor of activities in the doctors’ office. Her favorite pastime is keeping the doctors company after hours as they call clients and work on medical records.
