Debbie Icenogle (Office Manager)
About me: Debbie was born in San Rafael and raised in Los Angeles County, moving to the Santa Clarita Valley 19 years ago. She has been working professionally in the animal care field for 29 years. Her experience included domestic pets, farm animals, pocket pets and exotics. Some of her most memorable experiences include working at Tarra Productions as an apprentice elephant keeper/trainer and the California Condor Project at the L.A. Zoo during its first few years. Her personal pets include a Basset Hound, Pembroke corgi, African Grey Parrot, and a Thoroughbred horse. During her personal time, Debbie enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. Other enjoyments include riding her horse, traveling abroad and cooking. Debbie is excited to be back working in the veterinary field at Happy Pets, lending a helping to those pets are in need.


Gabi Hicks (Receptionist Supervisor)

She was born and raised in Santa Clarita and is currently attending College of the Canyons, majoring in Anthropology and hopes to transfer to CSUN soon.

Tanya L'Heureux (Veterinary Technician)
About me: Tanya was born in Granada Hills, CA. She has worked in the veterinary field for 9 years and has a lot, starting from cleaning kennels to working up to veterinary technician. She loves animals so much that she decided to go to grooming school and learn to style their hair (which she loves). Tanya says that being able to change a pet’s appearance with a hair cut is lots of fun, especially when they are really matted. To see them afterwards really puts a smile on her face. Tanya has three dogs, two Dachshunds named Squirt and Minnie, and a Pit Bull named Dottie. Tanya loves motorcycles and boating, and enjoys gardening, grooming, swimming, playing with her dogs, and hanging out with friends.

Victoria Aguilar (Veterinary Assistant)
