Staff of Sonoma County Mobile Veterinary Hospital

Ann TamonyChristina Semmler, Veterinary Technician and Office Manager

Christina Semmler has always shared a strong bond with animals. She had many pets growing up, and was especially close to her horse Mickey. She adopted him when she was 12 and he was 2. They grew up together, and even performed in shows from running barrels to chasing cows. She knew at a young age that her career path would involve animals. She worked her first job in a veterinary hospital at the age of 18, and has worked in the veterinary field since then. She obtained her medical assistant certificate in 2014 from Empire College.

Christina currently lives on a farm with pigs, goats, emus, a pony, a cow and many ducks, chickens, and turkeys. Her other animal companions are three dogs, and cat and a rabbit. Christina's hobbies include hiking and horseback riding. She is very excited to join Sonoma County Mobile Veterinary Hospital as a veterinary technician and office manager.
