Dr. Sandra Burhum

Dr. Sandra Burhum

As a native Southern Californian, Dr. Burhum attended veterinary school at Western University of Health Sciences. She then gained a tremendous amount of experience under great mentorship at a large practice where she worked for 6 years.

Interested in working closer to home, Dr. Burhum started working as a relief veterinarian in Orange County. This is how she came to meet Dr Bass and Bonnie. It was an immediate fit and she joined the Newport Pet Clinic family in October of 2015. Dr. Burhum loves the client centered approach and family feel of This home town type clinic.

She resides in Irvine and lives with her husband, two kitties
(because kitties only ALLOW you to live with them) and the newest addition to the family baby Sofia (baby of the human kind).

Dr. Beaudet is also certified in acupuncture!  We are thrilled to be able to offer acupuncture to our patients and see them thrive through an alternative form of medicine.

Licensed Veterinary Technician, Lisa
Licensed Veterinary Technician, Lisa

After a long search, we were lucky to find our Licensed Veterinary Technician, Lisa (seen with her daughter Daphne).

Lisa has been working in the veterinary field for 16 years and has experience in both Large Animal and Small Animal Veterinary Practice.  After working for practices in Texas for a year, Lisa moved to Arizona where she worked primarily with Small Animals - Dogs and Cats. As a California Native, Lisa was anxious to move back to Southern California which lead her to apply for a position with our clinic.  She landed the job on the spot and we now benefit greatly from her caring and expertise.   

Lisa has indeed been a great asset for our clinic.  She now enjoys the Southern California lifestyle, living in Huntington Beach, with her hubby and their 6 month old golden retriever, Daphne. They finds that long walks on the Beach - the Dog Beach that is - offer great bonding times.

Manager, Emily 

Manager, Emily

Emily was born and raised right here in beautiful Orange County. She knew early on that she wanted to pursue a career that would permit her to help people. For four years, Emily attended Irvine Valley College studying nursing but soon found that her true passion was working with animals. This brought her to the realization that she could have the best of both worlds; helping people by helping them take care of their furry, four footed family members. 

She started working for a veterinary clinic in 2006 and joined us in 2013 and comes to work smiling every day as you can see.  >>

Emily lives with George, her 13 year old Golden Retriever, as well as a very fancy Oranda Goldfish named Petey. She says that one day she'll find the perfect cat to round out the family. When she is not at work providing excellent care for our clients and patients, Emily enjoys the beach, scary movies and going to Las Vegas.

We are very fortunate to have Emily as part of our Newport Pet Clinic family.

Assistant Manager, Devanie

Assistant Manager, 

Devanie was born and raised in New Hampshire until she finally got fed up with the cold weather. She looked up the warmest place to move and settled in Arizona until she finally made her way to California in 2020. She has 2 wild cats named Paprika and Dill that love to cause trouble and make her life more difficult. Regardless, she still loves them to pieces.

Now that she resides in California, Devanie enjoys being outdoors, camping and especially loves reading. Coming to us with several years of veterinary experience, we are so grateful to have found Devanie!
