Meet Jeannette M. Kelly, DVM
Diplomate, ACVIM (Oncology)
Meet Megan Paget, Senior Oncology Nurse
Meet Brian Sturgeon, Oncology Nurse
Brian has had a long-time passion for animals. From a young age, he planned to become a veterinarian. He realized his passion was more about nurturing and caring for animals than actually being a vet, so he attended the veterinary technology school at San Juan College. Brian has worked with large and small mammals, and exotics in a variety of settings, including: general practice, urgent and critical care, surgery, internal medicine, and oncology specialties. Brian is an Oncology Nurse and Compliance Officer at Veterinary Cancer Care. Working closely with Dr. Kelly on clinical trials, Brian manages inventory, maintains certifications with OSHA and AAHA, and represents VCC in the community, where he helps educate about cancer prevention and treatment options. Outside of work, Brian enjoys power lifting with his husband Sammy, acting/performing, and spending time with loved ones including his pit bull, Karma and his adorable dachshund, Beenie.
