Xandra Prestia-Schear, Veterinary Assistant
Xandra loves most every animal and has since before she can remember. All of her life she has been surrounded by all sorts of creatures from cats, dogs, frogs, toads, turtles to hedgehogs, snakes, and chameleons. Since a very young age she imagined she would one day be working with animals in some capacity. While studying for her B.F.A in college, she volunteered as a special needs cat foster parent, and fell in love with the medical side of animal treatment. From there she dabbled in theatre, but eventually found working in a veterinary clinic and taking care of animals was her greatest passion. When she is not working at Stapleton Veterinary Hospital she spends her days hiking, camping, traveling, or when she is feeling more the home-body, spends the day playing Ukulele or reading a good book with her Snake Kthulu, Jackson Chameleon Sarek, Hedgehog Daenerys, and wonderful wife.
