Nathan has grown up in the Lacey area since he was 5 years old. His family has always had various types of pets while growing up, fish, hamsters, birds, and dogs. Before working at Mountain View, Nathan ran a very successful pet sitting business, mainly for friends and family. It was only natural that he was excited to apply for the role as Veterinarian Assistant. Nathan enjoys helping the doctors and technicians by holding on to the pets while they get their treatments, and helping the pets feel safe and comfortable. Nathan is owned by 1 dog named Arrow, a cuddly Vizsla. In 2021 he was adopted by a feral kitten named Oh Grr, that was rescued by the Mountain View staff. When he's not working, Nathan enjoys going on adventures with his wife Elizabeth and Arrow, hiking, and traveling, or even staying home to watch TV and movies on the couch. He enjoys working at Mountain View because it is a great chance to learn new skills, work with caring coworkers, and meet all sorts of cute pets.
Sabrina has been working as an assistant here since August of 2021. She became a pet care professional because she has always wanted to work with animals.

On her days off, Sabrina enjoys hiking and the feeling of accomplishment as she reaches the summit. While hiking and on other occasions she likes practicing her photography skills. Sabrina is owned by her two cats: Mori and Freyja, and her bird named Gideon.
