Liseth started at the YPH family as a high school intern. She enjoys working both at the front desk with the clients as well as in the back with their pets. In her spare time she loves camping, spending time with her dog Hazel and watching Marvel movies.

Since she was little, Amanda has loved animals, so much so that she can’t even remember a time when she didn’t want to work with them. From butterflies to grasshoppers to lizards, birds, and cute little baby bunnies, Amanda fostered any animal she could, nursed them back to health, and (often tearfully) released them back to their natural homes. She has completed her first year of veterinary school, but while on break she loves getting to know all the new faces and fur babies that walk through our doors. Amanda’s most recent additions to her own family are her Chihuahua mixes, Polar Bear and Oreo Cookie, who she also loves very much. In her free time, Amanda enjoys letting her puppies win at tug-of-war, watching medical TV shows, and playing volleyball.
Priscilla started at a young age with a love and passion for all animals. She wasn’t allowed to have any pets as a child, so she started puppy/kitten sitting for others. Shortly after high school she started her own kitten and puppy day care called “ Kitten and Puppy Paws Day Care.” When she moved out of her parents’ home she started adopting her own fur babies. Priscilla now has four dogs named Miracle, Lola, Hazel and Blue, and hopes for more in the future. Priscilla loves working at Yosemite Pet Hospital caring for your puppies and kittens as well as senior pets.

Aireana always loved animals, even as a young girl. She and her family raised ten horses when she was growing up. In high school, she joined the Future Farmers of America as well as a veterinary assistant program. She continued to pursue her interest in the veterinary field by doing an internship at a local emergency vet hospital. Impressed with her performance as an intern, the same emergency hospital hired her to be part of their staff. There she gained a deeper love and understanding of the veterinary profession. She spent another five years working there while at the same time working at another veterinary clinic where they worked on exotic animals as well.
Aireana’s other interests are hiking, rock climbing and traveling. She has two dogs (Noodle and Anari) that she enjoys spending time with, as well as her wonderful family!
