Celeste LaVette RVT
Celeste was born and raised in Northern California.  She has had an interest in veterinary medicine since the age of five and would pretend to diagnose and treat the family's four dogs and two cats.  Her first hands-on experience in a hospital was during high school when she worked in a multi-doctor practice that served both small and large animals.  Her favorite memories there include farm calls and treating horses. 
Celeste moved to Santa Rosa in 2000 and started working with Dr. Ross.  She attended the veterinary nursing program at SRJC, and became a Registered Veterinary Technician in 2004.  Her technical knowledge and unflappable personality are indispensable in the day-to-day operation of the practice.

Celeste lives in Petaluma with her two children, two dogs, three cats, one horse and seven chickens.  Her interests include reading, gardening, horseback riding and beekeeping.
