  • Michele
    Front Office Receptionist

    I am originally from New Jersey and have lived many places all over the U.S., but am happy to now call Phoenix home. 

    I have always loved animals and in 1998, I applied for a receptionist position at an animal hospital. From there I pursued a career as a vet tech for 15 years including 5 years of emergency in Santa Fe. I’ve come full circle and I’m back as a receptionist and loving it. 

    In my free time, I love spending time outdoors, reading, crafting and enjoying my three furry babes. Milo is my handsome, squishy-faced, 7-year-old cat. Edgar is my loving, but shy 3 and half-year-old terrier mix and Gogi, my sweet, story-telling Pug.
    My dream would be to one day have a Senior Pet Rescue organization. 

  • Michelle Knowles
    Certified Pet Aesthetician and Master Groomer

    I began my journey on the road to be a veterinarian. I was accepted at Purdue University veterinary program and began my pre-vet studies. While you are in school, the college likes to see that you are actively working with animals so I got a job with the Indianapolis Zoo. I worked in the plains section with Giraffes, Elephants, Wallabies and herd animals. Then I had a short job in a research facility where I worked with rats. I soon found out that I didn't have the heart to do the things I needed to learn how to be a vet. I couldn't bring myself to poke or cut a living creature. I had some friends that were really into grooming and decided to learn all I could about the profession. I read all 98 titles on grooming in the public library in one weekend and began my grooming career taking in strays, grooming them and finding them homes. I still had quite an interest in the medical side of things so I started studying anything about skin issues that I could get my hands on. This passion has snowballed over the years and today I am a Pet Aesthetician and certified groomer through 2 national organizations as well as an educator and speaker in my field.

  • Ruth Tekstar
    Boarding & Daycare Attendant (A.K.A Dog Whisperer) Technician Assistant
    I was born in Pennsylvania, have lived in Arizona most of my life....but am still a huge Steeler fan. I have 2 Shar Pei mixes name Sharpie and Blue which I love dearly. After 22 years in the customer service industry, I retired to follow my true passion of working with animals. I received my Pet Care Technician certification and helped open a new pet resort as a Client Service Specialist and Daycare Attendant. I then took a management position at a grooming salon until I was fortunate to have the opportunity to be a part of the Faust family.
  • Carole Baker
    Front Office Receptionist
    I am a native of Arizona, born and raised here. I have been involved in the Veterinary field for over 20 years, the first 20 years of my career I was a Veterinary Technician. I transitioned over to reception 3 years ago, the transition has opened up a whole new opportunity for growth and education. With 20 years of experience, I am able to provide exceptional customer service and education to our clients. I truly enjoy the interaction with the clients and the pets at a whole new level. With a deep sense of commitment to customer service and patient care, I am driven to ensure an exceptional client/patient experience every time. My personal time is spent hiking with my dogs, camping, scrap booking and riding my ATV. I enjoy the outdoors and communing with nature. I share my home with a house-full of furry family members. I am blessed to be the human counterpart to a certified therapy dog Berlin, Charlotte is my Lab mix who provides daily comic relief. We are all bossed around by 4 cats, Abigail, Mama, Trinity and Echo. And to top off our variety pack are Pepper and Paquito our feathered family members. In closing, I am proud to be a part of such an incredible industry and am honored to continue my career growth at Faust Animal Hospital. I look forward to meeting and getting to know everyone!
  • Tawnya Lively
    Administrative Assistant
    I am an Arizona native, but travel as much as possible. I am currently pursuing a BA and aspire to teach elementary education. As a previous Guest Relations Manager, I am well equipped to handle any client issue or concerns with empathy and compassion. My hobbies include arts and crafts, I have a stocked art studio and wood workshop. My tool arsenal is quite impressive! I am an only child with two fur babies of my own. Ruby is a 7yr old small boxer mix, she is a handful but I love her. Molly is a small poodle mix rescued straight off the streets. She is a lover and I am so fortunate to have her.
  • Alannah Montoya
    Technician Assistant
    I graduated from Pima Medical Institute in May of ’17 and received my Veterinary Assistant Certificate. Faust is my first job in a hospital and I was so lucky/happy to find this amazing clinic. I am continuing to learn here everyday from the great doctors and technicians, alike. I have one adorable siamese “snow tiger” ( siamese mix ) that I’ve had since I was 11, so we’ve grown up together. Someday I’d like to have a doberman or labradoodle too. My interests outside of work are movies/music/pop culture mostly from the 60s-80s, traveling when possible, and spending time with my family.

  • Kati Carpenter
    Practice Manager
    Kati Carpenter, CVT has always had a passion for animals and medicine leading her to pursue a career in the veterinary field. She moved from Washington State to Arizona in the fall of 2007 and promptly began her studies at Kaplan College where she earned her degree in veterinary technology and graduated

    valedictorian. In January of 2010, she sat for both the Arizona State and National board exams and has maintained her title of CVT (Certified Veterinary Technician) ever since. During school and while studying for the licensing exam, she discovered she has a unique gift of organization and an amazing ability to teach others in a fun and easily understandable way, this created and fueled her goal of not only helping fellow students pass their exams by hosting study groups and coaching peers to find their learning styles, but to become a leader in her field and striving to find a way to make everyone grow in their goals and become more successful. This goal has grown into a passion and over the years she has traveled to seminars and worked with leaders in the mentoring field to find a way to incorporate training, education and personal development into her management style.

    Once graduated, she took a position with the emergency clinic that she had completed many observations and externships with during school and even though she was easily qualified to become a technician, she recognized the importance of every position in the hospital and declined a technician position. Instead, wanting to avoid missing out on any pieces of the “workplace puzzle,” she accepted a level one Kennel Technician position and picked up shifts as a Front Office Receptionist on the weekends. From here she worked through their tiered training program and mastered every position in the hospital. In her career she has taken leadership roles in 3 more animal hospitals before beginning her new adventure here at Faust Animal Hospital as the Practice Manager.
    Kati brings to the practice an extensive knowledge of regenerative medicine and experience in Platelet Rich Plasma and Stem Cell Therapy. She has years of Inventory Management experience as well and is working to revamp our prices and keep our practice as current and as economical as possible for our clients. Kati believes in empowerment of our staff through education and has upcoming projects that will make each member of our staff more valuable and educated, benefiting our customers by improving overall patient care and increasing client education.

    Kati has been married to her wonderful husband, Chad, since 2016 and they share their home, in Buckeye, with their daughter, Mylie and their son, Grayson. Kati’s step daughter Hailey lives in Flagstaff, pursuing her passion for medicine with a nursing degree through Northern Arizona University. Kati loves hiking and camping and being outside in the country with her family, the human family members as well as the ones with paws and hooves.

  • Rudy Cat
    Beloved Resident House Cat

    I came to Faust in 2005 as a little kitten suffering from heat stroke. The Faust staff nursed me back to health and I spent all my days here. I had favorite spots to lounge: in the doctor's office, my special seat cushion in the break room, sometimes the reception desk. In between naps, my job was to comfort the nervous and anxious kitties that came to visit and to give love to everyone I came in contact with.

    While I am not physically here anymore, I hope that my memory still brings comfort to everyone as that is what I always did best.
