Dr. Mejia

Dr. Mejia knew she wanted to be a veterinarian since she was a little girl riding horses and hiking with the dogs at her uncle's farm in Colombia. She graduated from Universidad de Antioquia School of Veterinary Medicine. She worked for several years in a SPCA-type facility and at her alma mater before moving to Florida with her family. She and her family moved again in 2015, this time to beautiful California, following her daughter's acting career. Dr. Mejia loves to spend time with her family: her husband Sergio, her daughter Isabella and a beautiful adopted white kitty with different colored eyes named Tita.

Elyse<br/>Receptionist  photo


My name is Elyse. I've been working in the animal industry for almost 5 years. I've had many different positions including vet assistant, kennel assistant, dog groomer and most recently Veterinary receptionist. I have a passion for helping both people and animals and it's a joy to come to work each day! When I'm not working, I spend my free time training in competitive Olympic weightlifting and I hope to make it to Nationals and Worlds one day. I have 3 cats, also known as my fur children, at home and their names are Jenny, Snapple and Whisker Biscuits. I have one small dog named Booker and I had a Corgi who crossed the rainbow bridge in March 2017. I also go to India every year to work in an orphanage and help work with the kids so they can have food, a safe home and a good education. I'm excited to work for CCVH and I'm excited for what the future holds!
