Veterinary Staff

Becky Goheen, Hospital Manager

I have always loved animals and thought it would be fulfilling to work with them. I originally joined the team at Poway Animal Hospital as a receptionist in 1990. After moving to Bend, Oregon for a year in 2011, my husband and I realized that San Diego was our home and I was very fortunate to again find a place at Poway Animal Hospital.  The most rewarding part of my job is greeting clients, caring for pets and working with the Poway Animal Hospital staff. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, the beach, working in my garden, and of course spending time with my cocker spaniel Jenna.

I started at Poway Animal Hospital in 2002. It has been such an amazing experience. The doctors, staff, clients, and patients are all great to work with! I am a native of Poway, and am very active with my family, which is growing by the minute.


Jessica, Lead Technician Manager

I have been a member of the Poway Animal Hospital team since 2013. A San Diego native, I have been in the veterinary field for over 15 years. I absolutely love caring for animals, and I have five furry critters at home to keep me busy! In my free time I am an avid yoga practitioner and instructor, and I enjoy spending time with my family outdoors.




I’ve been working at Poway Animal Hospital since 2013 and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated every experience here. In my spare time, I’m studying, assisting research for a laboratory studying animal behavior, or trapping feral cats to be spayed and vaccinated.



I am originally from the east coast but moved to San Diego in May of 2017 after graduating from Becker College in Worcester, Massachusetts. I have been a licensed technician since June of 2018 after passing the VTNE and CRVT. In my spare time I enjoy going to the gym, hiking, running, reading and spending time with my husband and our two dogs.



I  have been a vet tech since 2015. I am originally from the Bay Area, but San Diego has been my home since 2018. I have a very sassy cat named Quinn. On my free time I like hiking, going to the beach, spending time with my husband and step daughter.



I am a psychology graduate looking to better understand animal behavior by working with and studying animals.

I relocated to Southern California in August 2005. In 2006 I attended Pima Medical Institute, where I graduated from the Veterinary Assistant Program.

I joined Poway Animal Hospital in June 2016. I am so happy to be a part of this amazing team!



I’m originally from Santa Barbara County. I’ve worked in animal hospitals for over 4 years and couldn’t be happier with my experiences. In my free time, I enjoy creating art and spending time at the beach. At home, I have 1 dog and 2 kitties I care for.



I am a member of Poway Animal Hospital since 2019. I’m from Oceanside. I’ve worked for various Veterinary Hospitals since 2004. In my spare time I like to walk my Labradors in Carlsbad & in the summer I take my Labradors surfing in Del Mar. I am a volunteer at Hidden Valley Obedience Club

Kennel Assistants



I have always had a great passion working with animals. I have been showing and breeding Australian Shepherds professionally with my family for over 13 years and enjoy every second. My dream career is to become a veterinarian in the near future. I am currently attending Grossmont Community College and plan on transferring to a four-year after I finish my general education. I am incredibly grateful that Poway Animal Hospital is helping prepare me to accomplish my lifelong career dream. The best part about working with the Poway Animal Hospital team is being surrounded by great supportive people, learning new skills, and caring for animals. In my free time I am caring and loving my three Australian Shepherds.


Veterinary Staff


I came to Poway Animal Hospital in 2007 and normally like hanging out in the reception area or in the doctor's office. I enjoy sitting in chairs or my bed up front. I'm also very friendly and enjoying meeting new clients when they come in. Hopefully I'll see you on your next visit!
