Senior Receptionist

Eva has been a valuable part of the Sequoia team since 2000! She has an incredible 16 years of experience working with wild animals - some of which include mountain lions, eagles, bears, wolves, porcupines, giant Indian fruit bats and binturongs, just to name a few! After receiving her Animal Science Degree at U.C. Davis, she worked as an animal trainer for four years at Marine World/Africa USA, then worked at Wildlife Associates where she raised & trained wild animals. Eva keeps very busy when she's not working; she has been a part of a band called the California Repercussions since 1982! She has played both tenor & baritone saxophone with her band-mates all over the bay area and even in numerous foreign countries. Her menagerie at home include three cats, a chameleon, a chinchilla, a tarantula, several Beta fish, and a tree frog. Her two children take after their mom when it comes to musical talent - her son Eric attends UC Davis and is a talented drum player, and daughter Roxy plays the trombone, and is also very gifted and passionate about robotics.




Pharmacy Assistant/Inventory Control

Jenna joined the Sequoia Veterinary Hospital team back in August of 2007. She was born and raised here in the Bay Area, and volunteered at the Silicon Valley Humane Society for one year before she joined our receptionist staff at Sequoia. She eventually took over the pharmacy assistant position, in addition to maintaining and overseeing the inventory of the hospital. She has one loveable Welsh Pembroke Corgi named Payton Monkey, one aquatic turtle named Jill, and one fish named Tuna. When Jenna is not working at Sequoia or petsitting, she loves attending concerts, camping, drawing, and going on trips.




Jennifer started at Sequoia in the mid 2012. She was born and raised in the greater Chicago area, but headed straight to California after graduating high school making her a bay area resident since 1995. Jennifer found her calling working with animals in 1999, and hasn't steered away from the field since. When she is not at Sequoia or at home spending time with her daughter Darlene, she can be found enjoying one of the many great outdoor activities offered in the bay area. She particularly loves hiking the coastal trails in Half Moon Bay and Santa Cruz. 



Front Office Supervisor

Angela joined the team in December of 2012, but has been in the veterinary field since 2005. She is a 2006 Foothill College graduate with an AS degree in both Veterinary Technology and General Science. She became a registered veterinary technician (RVT) the following year. Before coming to Sequoia, Angela took a 2 year hiatus to go back to school and to get married to her husband Brian. In her free time, Angela loves reading. Her literature of choice is SciFi/Fantasy. She also enjoys playing some online video games, practicing her newfound archery skills, and spending time barbecuing and hanging out with her family. Angela and her husband share their home with their dog Emma and cat Dub.






A Bay Area native, Allison has lived around animals her whole life. After earning her Bachelor's in Social-Psycho Linguistics at Occidental College, she pursued a specialized, hands-on degree in Exotic Animal Training and Management at Moorpark College. From 1996 to 2010, she cared for, raised and trained exotic and domestic animals of all varieties including sea lions, elephants, monkeys, sloths, lions, tigers, leopards, bears, kangaroos, koalas, zebras, gazelles and birds – to name a few! Allison first joined Sequoia Veterinary Hospital in early 2005, and held a variety of responsibilities over the next three and a half years. She returned to working with exotic animals at San Francisco and Sacramento Zoos in mid-2008, and returned to Sequoia part-time in early 2012. Outside of life at Sequoia, Allison puts her Social-Psycho Linguistics background to use as a life and communication coach. She combines her coaching expertise with her love of animals and her passion for travel & other cultures (which began when she lived in Belgium as a child) by leading safari adventures in Africa. She also enjoys dancing, playing volleyball, and spending time exploring the Bay Area with her dog, Ginger.
