Kayla Tinker

Kayla was born and raised on the Central Coast, and has been an animal enthusiast her entire life. Her love of all animals and desire to learn everything she can about them makes her an awesome addition to our team!

Starting with her first pets around age 5, she has raised everything from fish, small birds, reptiles and rodents, to chickens, turkeys, geese, goats, pigs, and horses. Kayla enjoys taking care of her chickens, riding horses with her friend Shelly, and spending time with her fiancée, Spencer, and their two dogs, Chopper (a 7 year old pit bull) and Harlee (a 2 year old Catahoula American Bulldog mix), their three indoor cats Mandi (12), Mushu (12), and her new birthday kitten, Sushi, who she adopted from her old veterinary office after they removed a large fishhook from her hip! Kayla also has a ridiculously old goldfish, and is being trained as a dog trainer. She is excited to be a part of the vet assistant staff while continuing her quest to become a registered veterinary technician at Cat and Exotic Care!
