Executive Director

Leah Stalker, RVT

Leah, the Executive Director for MAHC was born and raised in San Diego and currently resides in Carlsbad. Leah began working in animal nutrition sales in 2004, then took that love of animals and started a job with the US Army Veterinary Corps treating military working dogs in Iwakuni, Japan. In 2011 she moved back stateside and worked in a busy exotic practice caring for everything from birds to snakes to goats. Leah worked with a traveling orthopedic surgeon while providing relief services and leading technician teams for hospitals in both San Diego and Riverside County.

While working she also completed her education in the evenings to become licensed as an RVT. In practice, she found a deep desire with each team she worked with to serve and give back to the staff, doctors, and clients and is proud of what a great team we have here at Mohnacky.

Leah has a passion for travel and living each day to the fullest. She has traveled to nine countries and is working towards visiting all seven wonders of the world.

Our Technicians

Carla, RVT

My favorite part about working in this field is being able to snuggle our geriatric patients. They hold such a special place in my heart. I like taking that little bit of extra time with them and maintaining their comfort is my top priority.


I take pride in what I do and enjoy working in all areas of the hospital. I love animals and strive to help keep them healthy so they can continue to give wet kisses for as long as possible.


I am Vet Assistant Certified through PIMA Medical and College of the Palm Desert. I enjoy working with all types of animals. I love the fast pace of MAHC and serving our clients and their precious pets.


Coming from shelter medicine Celeste is excited to work in a busy hybrid practice and focus her technician skills in both specialty and general medicine.


As lead In the kennels, I love giving your fur babies a home away from home and spoiling them when you can’t.
