Veterinary Assistant

Mila joined the Needham family from all the way in Saint-Petersburg Russia!  She moved to Leland this year.  She attended Saint Petersburg Academy of Veterinary Medicine and graduated in 2013, so she is actually a veterinarian in Russia.  She has specialized in surgery since 2010.  Prior to working here she worked at the Animal Hospital of San Luis Obispo, CA as a head tech and Watford City Vet Center in North Dakota as a surgery intern.  She shares her home with Bubbles, her Great Pyrenees/Aussie mix and Marsya and Mufasa, her cats that came with her from Russia.  In her off time she enjoys hiking, yoga, the beach, guitar, cooking, music concerts, reading, studying, and Netflix.  She would like to one day return to being a veterinary surgeon and is currently working on obtaining her American Veterinary License.
