Our Careteam

Tiffany
Licensed Veterinary Technician
Tiffany has been a pet owner her entire life, and has always felt a close kinship with the earth’s creatures. The fact that her grandmother kept everything from cats and birds to rabbits and turtles only deepened her passion—for Tiffany, veterinary medicine was the only career path out there! She’s been working as a veterinary professional since she was only 16 years old, and she’s proud to continue her journey in animal medicine here at Critter Care Animal Hospital.

Tiffany is a native of Henderson, Nevada and was still in high school when she first started as a dog-walker for a local kennel. She attended the PIMA Medical Institute to earn her veterinary credentials, graduating as a Licensed Veterinary Technician, before launching her career as an animal-care professional. Tiffany joined the Critter Care Animal Hospital family in May of 2017 and couldn’t be happier—she’s especially fond of helping with surgeries and performing foreign-body removals. Her favorite part of the job, though, is watching pets mature over time and getting to know their loving owners.

At home, Tiffany and her girlfriend live with multiple pets of their own. They have four dogs—Agnes the French bulldog; a spoiled Chow mix named Lilly; and two Cavalier King Charles spaniels who go by Tucker and Piper—as well as three cats. Tiffany even belongs to French bulldog and Cavalier King Charles spaniel meet-up organizations, and loves getting together with other breed owners multiple times a year!
Jonathan
Training & Development Manager
Jon is a pet owner himself, and knows exactly how he would like his own animal companions to be treated. When the opportunity arose for him to advocate for pets while using his background in training and personnel, it was simply the perfect fit! Jon is proud to serve as Creature Comforts Animal Hospital’s Training and Development Manager.

Jon was born in New Orleans, Louisiana but traveled frequently while growing up thanks to his father’s career in the Air Force. He followed in his father’s military footsteps and, along with his brothers, joined the United States Army. Jon completed his education while in the military, and specialized in military intelligence with a secondary specialization in personnel administration.

After serving for more than 9 years, Jon launched his career in corporate America in the field of training and knowledge management. He’s held all sorts of positions since, including Senior Director! Jon joined the Creature Comforts Animal Hospital team in February of 2021, and couldn't be happier to put his skill set and background to good use in a veterinary setting.

Most of Jon’s free time away from the clinic is spent with his family. He and his wife, Heather, are a blended family with several children—Brendan, Cameron, Amaya, and Mason. They share their lives with two loveable dogs: Ella, a Cane Corso/Rhodesian Ridgeback mix whose life motto is “If I think I fit, then I sit,” as well as an elderly but adorable Boston Terrier/Shih Tzu mix named Tinkerbell.
Pamela
Kennel Tech
If you ask Pamela what she loves most about her kennel tech position at Creature Comforts Hospital, she’ll rave about her love for animals and working with a great staff that keeps her motivated. Not only that, Pam loves how hands-on everything is - she’s not afraid to get hands dirty!

So what exactly gave Pamela the urge to work with animals? One incident in particular stuck with her, when a little boy at a zoo accidently fell into a gorilla’s cage. Onlookers feared the worst, but were shocked when the gorilla ended up protecting the child until he was brought to safety. This incident opened Pamela’s eyes to how compassionate and kind animals can be, and it’s stuck with her to this very day.

Born and raised in Las Vegas, Pamela comes from a large family that includes two dogs. Most of her interest in animals comes from being around so many people and understanding how to communicate.
Melissa
Treatment Manager
Melissa’s passion for animal care started when she was six years old and saved aluminum cans to help purchase her first horse, Thunder. Her dream only grew from there. For Melissa, working hands-on with the earth’s creatures to help them live happier, healthier lives is the only career path that makes sense! She’s proud to serve as the Treatment Manager here at Creature Comforts Animal Hospital.

Melissa is a Las Vegas native and earned her degree in animal science from Colorado State University before returning to her home state to work as a Veterinary Technician. After seven years helping pets firsthand as a Tech, she entered academia and began working in a Veterinary Nursing and Technology program. Melissa earned her Master’s degree in educational leadership from the University of Las Vegas in 2008, and became the Veterinary Clinic Manager at the university the following year. After more than 15 years working in veterinary nursing and technology education, Melissa decided to transition back to small-animal care and joined the team here at Creature Comforts Animal Hospital in October of 2020. The rest is history!

Melissa’s passion within veterinary medicine is client education. She considers it a privilege to serve as an advocate and a voice for her patients, and she loves helping her patients and fellow team members to better understand the “whys” and “hows” behind treatments, procedures, and care techniques.

In her spare time, Melissa likes baking, making custom gift baskets, spending quality time with her family, and caring for her horses at the barn. Along with her husband, David, and their beautiful daughter, Gabriella, Melissa shares her life with four dogs—a Border Collie mix named Cavalry, two Great Danes who go by Andi and Panzer, and a French Bulldog named Aria—as well as a scarlet macaw, Sawzall, and a variety of Koi fish in their pond. She also owns two horses: Star, a purebred Arabian Gelding, and a half-Arabian Mare named April. Melissa frequently shows Arabian horses and has earned multiple national top-ten awards in Arabian and half-Arabian carriage pleasure driving!

Evelin
Manager
Furry or non-furry – Evelin Duran loves them all! Having worked in customer service for more than two decades, she has certainly honed her skills at helping others, and this is obvious in her role as Creature Comforts’ beloved Practice Manager. Educating people on the products and services that best fit their pets’ needs brings a sense of joy and fulfillment to her heart!

Even as a teenager, Evelin always enjoyed working. A wise mentor once told her that in order to succeed, one must create a plan to accomplish things and then put them into motion. Over the years, in her various roles, Evelin applied that advice by becoming a master at whatever it was she was tasked with. From there, she would share her knowledge with others. This naturally led her into the management field. Professionally, Evelin lists communication as the secret to her career success.

A true animal lover, Evelin has never viewed her dogs as pets, but rather her children. She rescued her current kiddo, Mojo – a Siberian Husky - when he was two years old. At the time, he weighed just 24 pounds. Determined to give him a better life, Evelin was able to get him up to 70 pounds in about 60 days.

Over the years, Mojo has repaid his fur-mommy by also saving her life on more than one occasion. As an asthma sufferer, Evelin has experienced a few medical emergencies during the night. Each time, sensing something was wrong, Mojo sought help and alerted someone else in the household to call 9-1-1. Not surprisingly, the two share an unbreakable bond.

Aside from working with the clients, patients and staff of Creature Comforts – and, of course, spending time with Mojo – Evelin enjoys sketching, painting and crafting. She also plays volleyball, both recreationally as well as competitively, and looks forward every year to going all out for her favorite holiday, Christmas.
Meghan

Growing up, Meghan Doughty can’t remember a time when she wasn’t surrounded by many different animals. It was only natural that she developed a deep love and passion for helping and caring for them. As a young child, she dreamed of one day working with exotic and marine animals. Today, she gets to live out a little bit of that dream as part of the Creature Comforts team!

Meghan’s human family consists of her husband and their young daughter. Having recently moved to Las Vegas from Connecticut, they are still relatively new to the area and have enjoyed exploring. Since relocating, Meghan’s husband recently took up the hobby of welding, and their daughter particularly enjoys playing with the family’s dogs.

In her free time, Meghan enjoys spending time with her loved ones, bringing her daughter on new adventures and showing her everything the world has to offer.
Kenzie
Veterinary Assistant
Kenzie Hatch has always felt a special connection with animals and believes that helping them is something she is called to do.

She is excited to be following her dream!

Kenzie started with the Creature Comforts team in July of 2021, after accidentally applying for the wrong position. Fortunately for our staff, clients and patients, she still got a call back and has made a wonderful addition to the team.

Kenzie grew up in St. George Utah with her Mom, Dad, brother and 3 sisters. Today, she lives with her Fiancé and their 2 dogs: an 8-year-old yellow lab named Loui and a 2-year-old timber wolf named Leeroy. They are both super silly and love to play with each other. Leeroy doesn't bark he just howls like a wolf. Especially if you howl at him first. Loui just mostly likes to eat and sleep when his little brother isn't bugging him.
Erin
Veterinary Assistant
When Erin Simpson graduated high school, she wasn’t in a rush to pursue higher education. Her parents, on the other hand, had other plans. Weighing the various opportunities available to her, Erin chose veterinary medicine. After a brief stint working at a local elementary school, Erin came to the realization that she loved animals WAY more, and that realization reignited her passion for animal care!

In an interesting twist of fate, Erin actually completed her externship here at Creature Comforts. She then worked at several other clinics on the west part of town before finding her way back to her roots. In her role as Veterinary Assistant, Erin enjoys developing relationships with animals and their owners. She has a special interest in radiology and ultrasound.

Erin had a yellow lab named Harlow who was her best friend and adventure partner for 14 years. She was her protector, her comfort, her shadow and her secret keeper. To this day, Erin is eternally grateful to have been able to share her life with such an amazing soul.

Born in Bryan, Texas Erin moved to Las Vegas when she was just 2 weeks old. She spent summers in Colorado with her dad, hiking, fishing and of course finding the wild animals. Today, she finds tremendous joy living here in the mountains of Vegas.

Samantha
Licensed Veterinary Technician
No matter the shape, size or breed, Samantha loves all animals equally. As a licensed veterinary technician at Creature Comforts Animal Hospital, “Sam” knows just how important these adorable creatures are to their families. She does everything in her power to help solve their issues so they can go back home to their beloved families!

Sam’s passion for her field first kicked in when her first dog, Pasha, became ill. She didn’t know anything about veterinary medicine at the time, so she took her dog to a nearby veterinarian. The vet was able to diagnose the problem and heal Pasha with an array of medications and treatments, and process that fascinated Sam.

It was at that moment she decided to not feel helpless when it came to helping animals, and be able to handle any future issues that came her pet’s way. The same preventative measures that she took for her beloved dog Pasha are the measures she wants to take for the pets of her clients at Creature Comforts Animal Hospital.

      Everyone is kind and helpful, they make sure you're pet is comfortable and all needs are met. Kiwi love's going there and she makes sure everyone will give here the belly rubs she wants before she decided it's time to go home. The staff spoils her. Thank you for a great experience we received every time we come.
