Mandi Coats: Veterinary Assistant


Mandi, Veterinary Assistant

Although always an animal lover, Mandi's interests in veterinary medicine began after she started volunteering with animal rescues over 12 years ago. She took particular interest in special needs cats and their medical care. This eventually blossomed into a love for the medical side of rescue, and Mandi started taking courses to become a licensed veterinary technician. Mandi has over 6 years of experience working in the field. She has quite the zoo at home with 4 cats named Caesar, Freya, Bobby B, and Bran; 3 dogs named Odd, Crystal, and Kella; and 6 chickens named Edna, Annabelle, Marchesa, Fiona, Reza, and Beyjay. She's passionate about animal rescue and has fostered over 40 dogs and cats. 

Although Mandi was born and raised here in Texas, she has recently returned from living in Toronto, Canada and Western New York for the last 4 years. She's glad to be back in this miserable heat! Mandi has been married for 18 years and has one daughter, Catherine. She's an advocate for her daughter who has Down Syndrome and volunteers with Special Olympics. She loves to fish, hike, camp, read, watch terrible reality television, and cook in her down time.
