Samantha Islas

Kennel/Technician Assistant

I joined Animal Care Hospital in 2019 after completing my Bachelor’s of Science from the University of Illinois. I work closely in the kennel providing care for boarding patients and provide bathing and spa services for our patients. Because, I do desire to attend veterinary school, I have been working closely with the technicians and doctors learning and performing preoperative care to our patients who are having either surgical or dentistry procedures. I grew up in a multicultural home in Elwood, IL and one of my favorite things about working at Animal Care Hospital is the culture of women’s empowerment that resonates throughout the practice as my coworkers and I strive for veterinary care excellence in a clean and attractive facility. I am driven to be a valuable member of this team by determination, integrity, intelligence, and FAITH. One thing that I have seen pet owners struggle with is the cost of medical care for their pets which has made me a big advocate for keeping your pets insured with an accident/injury/illness policy. In spend my time with family, traveling and I love being on water kayaking, swimming, and coffee.

I love trying different Latin American foods and when I have a sweet craving, I love a good Mangonada!
