She is often the first one to volunteer to take home our weak rescues and nurse them back to health. That is how she ended up with a one-eyed pitbull that took 16 pills a day.

She enjoys attending the Mountain Man Rendezvous and doing crafts. She is the one responsible for the crocheted hats that often make their rounds around the clinic cats.
Rochelle’s career began in Las Vegas, NV as a full-time kennel technician and a part-time large exotic animal caregiver. Some of those animals included a coatimundi, lemur, bobcat, wallaby, several parrots, snakes, a serval, and yes... even a tarantula. She quickly realized how much she loved all aspects of the veterinary field began applying herself to master in other areas of the field. She was advanced to a veterinary technician position in the same hospital. She likes to say, “This was the beginning of the rest of her life.” Since 2005, Rochelle has worked all positions in a veterinary hospital from a veterinary technician, receptionist, kennel attendant, and even worked her way up to hospital manager. She spent a large portion of her career managing two part-time, small animal practices and created their first rescue program helping to remove adoptable animals from the kill list at the local shelter. She worked tirelessly to find perfect forever homes for over 50 animals. In the summer of 2008, Rochelle realized her love and passion for helping rescued animals was so great that she furthered her career by managing the shelter clinic at a no-kill animal shelter for 4 years. She was and is still a part of the nonstop mission to end overpopulation and the unnecessary euthanasia of healthy, adoptable animals. Rochelle Joined Midvalley in February 2017.
