  • Profile

Renda joined Mayfair in March 2005 as a Veterinary Assistant.  She is a transplant from California.  Renda has lived in Raleigh for 11 years and still has a love/hate relationship with our North Carolina weather.  She has a B.A. in Psychology with a minor in Exercise and Health Science from UC Santa Barbara and is K-Laser IV therapy certified.   When asked why she enjoys working in veterinary medicine, Renda said "veterinary medicine is a dynamic and ever-changing field.  I love the one medicine concept and have always been interested in how veterinary medicine and human medicine are intertwined.  I enjoy the variety of cases we see on a daily basis and the unique challenges each patient brings.  Every day is a bit different and even the little things bring great rewards.  It is never boring and I am constantly learning and growing from my experiences".  

Renda has two dogs, Haiku and Willow, and a kitty, Milo, who is convinced he is a dog.  

In her spare time, Renda enjoys spending time with family, beach trips, binge-watching movies or multiple seasons of a TV show, vegetable gardening, cooking and catching up on sleep.
