Malea MangoneCVTHospital Manager
I have been in the veterinary world since 1998. I gained my state and national license as a CVT (certified veterinary technician) in 2009. I called Oregon home until I was 19, when I moved to Prescott on a whim. I spent some time working in critical care facilities here in Arizona then explored the same in California and Chicago before returning back to the sunny state of Arizona. After working in small and large animal medicine, emergency/critical care, surgical specialty, internal medicine and trauma triage, I have planted roots in Dewey. I am very excited to be part of the team at KAH and look forward to meeting all our patients. I share my home with my dogs Karma and Bash as well as my horses Apache, Joe, Majesty and Otis.

I grew up in Barrington, Illinois, in the suburbs of Chicago. Horses were my childhood passion and I spent most of my time horseback riding and working with polo ponies. After high school I moved out west to attend college in Colorado and Arizona. I have been working in the veterinary field since 2002, beginning as a receptionist at a small animal clinic in Tucson to an office manager at an animal hospital in Tempe. After graduating from Arizona State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Anthropology, I moved up to the Prescott area to enjoy the cooler weather and all the outdoor adventures it has to offer. At home I have two Terriers named Fenway & Sidda & a feisty Yorkipoo named Bubba. In my free time, I love camping, ATVing, road trips & gardening.

Hi! It is nice to meet everyone! I was born and raised in Arizona. Being native to Arizona, I have traveled and seen all the beautiful places here in Arizona. I have had animals all my life. This includes dogs, pigs, cows and horses. Being at Kachina gives me a great opportunity to work with the pets and help our clients.

Hello there! I am a Prescott Native, born & raised. I have seen many changes in the area over the last 30++ years (wink, wink) but it is still my favorite place to be and I'm proud to call it home. I started in the veterinary field directly out of high school in '93. In this field I've tried it all - I started as a kennel attendant, moved to reception, tech'd for a short time, and even went into management. Since my passion is animals & family I have learned, over the years that the front office is the place for me. I cherish the relationships built with the fur babies and their families. I have many fur babies of my own including 'Emma' (in the pic) and I am the proud mom of 3 amazing daughters (and blessed with several 'bonus' daughters). We spend as much time as possible in our beautiful outdoors. I'm starting my 6th year here at KAH and I am honored to be part of this amazing team! Come on in & say hi!

Hi I'm Angela. I grew up in a small town, on a big property, with lots of animals. My passion for animals started at a young age. I grew up with dogs, cats, chickens, peacocks, a horse, goats, bunnies and even a raccoon that we rescued. I joined Kachina Animal Hospital as a CSR in April of 2019 and I'm so thankful to be a part of this team. We have unique individuals, great leaders and amazing clients. I enjoy watching your pets grow, caring for them and providing customer satisfaction. Love my Kachina Family!
