Mary Rattray

Head Surgery Technician

Mary was born and raised in upstate New York and from a very young age, she knew she wanted a career taking care of animals.

She attended State University of New York Agricultural and Technical College at Delhi where she graduated in 1985 with a degree in Veterinary Science Technology. She continued her education with the assistance of a basketball scholarship at St. John Fisher College in Rochester, New York, graduating with a Bachelor of Science.

After moving to Los Angeles in 1987, she began her career working as an ICU technician and then a surgery technician with Dr. Kirk Wendelburg at another hospital in the city. Mary obtained her California RVT license in 1989. She then followed Dr. Wendelburg in 1991 after he started what was then called Animal Surgical Referral, and has had the privilege of working with him ever since.

Mary has handled various duties through the years, but her favorite is as an anesthesia/surgery technician.

Mary shares a home in Burbank with her cats and her hobbies include reading, riding her Harley-Davidson motorcycle, and training for the Los Angeles Marathon. She is active in both the local Chapter of Harley Owners Group and the LA Roadrunners as a pace leader.
