Sydney Pawlik, Technician

Sydney works at MVC as a Jane-of-all-Trades. Sometimes you can find her working as a tech in the back, other times answering phones upfront, and always managing social media. She loves spending time in the mountains with her husband and time at home with her two cats. Her favorite things about working at MVC are the awesome staff, the loyal clients, and all the snuggles with our patients.

Kailee has been with Mission Veterinary Clinic since July of 2020. She is currently working on her RVT license with an interest in anesthesiology. Kailee spends much of her time with her six animals at home: two dogs named Nina and Fezzik, her cat Ophelia, and her three rats – Glenn Coco, Lucy-fur, and Cheese-wiz Khalifa. Kailee has a fondness for rodents so she’s always happy to talk to you about them if you have any of your own.
