Taylor Lukaske was born in Valley Cottage, New York and spent most of my life in-state up until I graduated from university. After graduating from the University of Plattsburgh with a Bachelors in Anthropology, I moved to Sakuragawa, Japan for two years to work as a Grade School Teacher. In 2018 I moved to California, but only started working at Antech Imaging Services in May of 2019. I love being able to help people, and being able to contribute to the lives of pets. I’ve always had an affinity for birds and hope to adopt my own someday soon. Outside of work, I can speak Japanese conversationally and I am studying Old Norse as well. I enjoy studying myth and I also draw in my spare time.Less
I was born at Eglin AFB, located in the Florida pan handle. After finishing the 5th grade my family relocated to Yokota AFB in Tokyo Japan. After finishing high school we moved back to the US to Albuquerque New Mexico.
Shortly after I joined the US Air Force. During my service time I worked as a combat survival instructor, a transportation manager and an education and training manager. I was stationed in Texas, Washington, Arizona, Montana, Florida as well as a short stay in Saudia Arabia.
After 10 years of service I was honorable discharged and moved to Northern California. During that time I worked in construction as a cable installer and a pest control technician. In 2013 we moved to Costa Mesa, California where I worked as a over the road truck driver for 2 years before I was hired by Antech Imaging Services.
I am have been married for 15 years and have a son who is in High School.Less
I was born and raised in Southern California. I spent many summers as a child at my grandfather’s ranch with horses, goats and a lot of dogs! I was always bringing home lost or injured animals so it was natural for my first job in high school to be at a pet store and to begin working at a veterinary clinic in 2005. I have worked as a receptionist, technician assistant and spent 4 years as a travelling dental technician before coming to Antech Diagnostics in 2018 as the lead laboratory coordinator. I transferred to AIS in 2021. I love camping, reading and cooking. I am a big horror movie buff. I have 2 cats- Phantom and Isis, and one amazing little Shih Tzu named Buffy.Less
Tawny Lee Thompson has enjoyed her position at AIS Tech Support since June 2013. She previously worked as a veterinary assistant in small animal medicine for about 14 years. Outside of work, she enjoys volunteering for her boy's Cub Scout Pack and at their school, and reading in every spare moment in between. She has a weakness for dark chocolate, and considers herself both a dog and a cat person, though lizards and snakes rate too! Tawny has a passion for education and animals, and believes that the key to keeping our furry friends healthy is keeping their families aware of how to best care for their loved ones.Less
