Mackenzie started at Beach Pet as a receptionist in July of 2019. She is currently attending TCC with plans to eventually enter the Veterinary Technician Program. Her favorite part about working at Beach Pet is that no day is ever the same. She says “Every day at work is always so different. I have seen different species and types of animals such as Monitor lizards that I would not get the privilege of seeing while working at many other places. It's amazing and keeps each and every day enjoyable and interesting. We never get bored at Beach Pet Hospital!”.
Mackenzie has a German Shepherd named Bravn who loves peanut butter and kisses and a mixed breed named Max who loves to snuggle follow her around the house. Her idea of a day in paradise is taking Max and Bravn to the beach, then attending a concert performed by one of her favorite artists while dancing the night away. If she is not with her dogs or listening to music, you can find her cheering on her favorite team when basketball is in season!
Katlyn is a Pennsylvania native and graduated from Edinboro University. She moved to Virginia Beach in 2018 and we are beyond happy to have her on our team! Her favorite part about working at Beach Pet is observing the different breeds and species our hospital brings in. Katlyn works at the front desk, so she gets a front row spot to see all the different types of patients we see. She especially loves to see raccoons and opossums!
Katlyn is a cat-mom of 3, and her family includes Lucille, Heidi, and little mama. All 3 of her kitties like to sunbathe by the window and bury themselves under the luxury throw blanket that rests on the couch. When Katlyn is not working, you can find her running at different parks and trails, going to concerts, or browsing Barnes & Noble for a new book.
