  • Christine

    Christine likes working at a Cat's View because cats have always held a special place in her heart; she's always felt very close to cats and feels like she can really understand them.  She's been working in veterinary medicine for 26 years! Working here gives her the opportunity to do what she loves while working with people that are more like family than coworkers. She enjoys home improvement projects, gardening, cooking, and raising neonatal kittens. She has 5 cats named Fuzzy Butt, Sheldon, Priscilla, Rusty, and Billy.

  • Harmony Archbold
    Veterinary Assistant

    Originally from Northern California, Harmony moved here with her two boys and fell in love with Valley Center. She grew up on a farm raising and working with animals of all shapes and sizes, which is where her love for animals began. Her little family has a special place in their hearts for cats, so when she found our hospital that specializes in cats, she knew she had to become a part of this wonderful team!
