  • Marilyn
    Veterinary Receptionist

    Marilyn has always had a deep-rooted love of animals. She grew up in Kansas City, Missouri, where she spent time volunteering in local shelters and walking dogs for elderly residents in her apartment complex. After moving to Phoenix, Arizona, she started a job working at a doggy daycare, where she helped care for dozens of dogs a day, and realized quickly that working with animals was where she belonged. Another move brought her to Layton, and she started at LVH soon after. Working in veterinary medicine has been the highlight of her employment history, and it is a field she plans on staying in throughout her life.  Working for LVH has been the most rewarding job she's ever had.
