Marissa has an undying passion for everything animal. Loving them, petting them, looking at them, caring for them and making sure their human companions know how best to do the same. It was this passion, and a Veterinary Assistant Certification course, that lead her to volunteer her time assisting Myke aboard the Absolute Pawfection Mobile unit. Her passion and good work ethic did not go unnoticed and she is now a manager and regular fixture at the Academy & Sorrento Valley locations. In the unlikely event that an animal needs medical attention, Marissa is also certified in pet CPR and first aid. When she isn’t working she spends her time cuddling up (or at least trying to!) with Frankie, her little black kitty, that she loves more than life itself.
After five years of managing a retail chain in Oceanside Tim decided he was long overdue to go back to his real passion, animals. Tim is a certified Veterinary Assistant and has over three years professional experience working with animals. Tim is also a student at Mira Costa College. When he’s not busy working or studying, you can find Tim with his Chinese Crested named Echo snuggling up to watch Netflix or playing fetch at the dog park.
