Bret

Client Service Representative

Bret fled the dreadful weather of the Midwest to the cool, foggy city by the Bay many, many years ago and has never regretted it. While this is his first exposure to working in a Veterinary setting, he has worked in medical offices, hospitals and hospice care settings. But this is the first time he actually gets to wear scrubs!
Bret grew up in a household where everyone had at least one dog, sometimes two, as well as fish, iguanas, snakes and a shark at one point. Currently he has no pets, as his apartment building didn’t allow them when he moved in, but he’s happy to boop noses and give scratches to pets that come visit the office.
