Randy Ceballos, DVM
Dr. Ceballos was born in West Covina, California, but grew up in a small town called Mariposa, which he still loves to visit. He graduated from California State University, Stanislaus in 1995 with a degree in biology and a minor in chemistry, and started veterinary school that same year. He graduated from Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1999, and then moved to Las Vegas.
Dr. Ceballos worked at Tropicana Animal Hospital for a year and a half before opening Sunridge Animal Hospital in 2001 as head doctor and manager. In January 2015, he officially became the proud owner of Sunridge Animal Hospital. Dr. Ceballos’ professional interests include surgery, orthopedics, reptiles, large cats, and exotics. His personal interests include camping, cooking, fishing, playing the guitar, and visiting Mariposa.
You’re sure to be in great hands with Dr. Ceballos. He has many years of experience working as a veterinarian at places like the Silverton Aquarium and Las Vegas Zoo, and has also spent several years with the Department of Wildlife. He has worked with lions, Gila monsters, eagles, and other wild birds, all while managing to balance his time at Sunridge.
Marisda Rosa, DVM
Dr. Rosa was born and raised in Puerto Rico where she attended the University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez, earning a bachelor degree in animal science. She moved to Alabama in 2003 to study veterinary medicine at Tuskegee University, graduating in 2007. Dr. Rosa joined the Sunridge family in 2007 and has been a vital part of our team. Her primary interests include internal medicine, geriatric health care, and preventative care.
Dr. Rosa is very passionate about her patients, making sure that they are happy and as pain-free as possible. She has a furry family of rescues that are a huge part of her life. She loves visiting her family and friends—and the beaches in Puerto Rico! In Nevada, she enjoys dining out and trying new restaurants, the movies, camping with friends, and having a relaxing day at the spa.
Dr. Rosa has been a vital part of the clinic since she joined us in 2007. With her experience she is one of the best at her craft. She cares fiercely for each patient and won't rest until she knows the animal is well taken care of. Combined with Dr. Ceballos, they make an excellent team. There is rarely something they cannot do. If there is something they are unable to do, they will refer the patient to specialty to make sure they get the care they deserve.
Ashley C. Izaguirre-Alomar, DVM
Dr. Izaguirre-Alomar was raised around animals thanks to her grandfather, so it was only natural for her to develop a love for animals herself and want to help them stay healthy. Her education includes Pontificia Universidad Catolica Recinto de Arecibo, PR, Ross University, and Louisiana State University (where she spent her clinical year). One of the things Dr. Izaguirre-Alomar loves most about practicing medicine is experiencing the joy of keeping animals happy and healthy. They are so easy to love, and are always grateful for the help they receive.
Dr. Izaguirre-Alomar has a pet bearded dragon. Outside of work, she enjoys traveling, skating, and various outdoor activities.
Jasmine Lyons, DVM
Dr. Lyons received her Bachelor of Science degree from Howard University and earned her DVM from Tuskegee University. She is also a Fear Free Certified Professional. Dr. Lyons loves her patients, and one of the things she really enjoys about practicing veterinary medicine is having the ability to advocate for those who cannot speak for themselves.
Dr. Lyons shares her home with her beloved Standard Poodle, Santiago, a tuxedo cat named Blackjack, and a bearded dragon named Chico.
Kimberly Holford, DVM
Dr. Holford obtained her DVM from Tuskegee University College of Veterinary Medicine, which she attended from 2017 to 2021. Her professional interests are exotic animal medicine, avian medicine, reptile husbandry, and pocket pets. As for hobbies, she has quite a few! They include hiking, biking, going to the movies, seeing plays and musicals, playing chess, sewing, reading, video games, and playing piano.
Dr. Holford has a small menagerie of pets at home: an Australian Cattle dog named Neko; a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Wendell; a Maine Coon cat named Bee; a domestic longhair cat named JT; a cockatiel named Kona; and a Sulcata tortoise named Gaia.
Jeylan Kazim Assistant Manager
Jeylan worked in the veterinary field as a receptionist and later a shift lead, before becoming an assistant manager. She has a bachelor’s degree in game art and design from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, and while she ended up choosing a very different career path, Jeylan still loves to draw when she can make time for it. Some of her other personal interests include hiking, taking in the mountain scenery, seeing her family in Florida at least once a year, going to amusement parks and the movies, and checking out new restaurants.
Jeylan has 3 dogs; a Boxer named Layla, a Beagle named Ringo, and a Shih-Tzu named Sadie.
Katie Stout Lead Technician
Katie has been in the veterinary field for over a decade. She majored in animal science and nutrition at West Virginia University, where she was a part of the WVU Poultry Judging Team (yes, it’s real). She also started working nights at a veterinary emergency hospital during this time, and that’s when she fell in love with veterinary medicine. After school, Katie went to another animal hospital and eventually became the ER tech lead before moving to Las Vegas in 2018.
While she enjoys most aspects of veterinary medicine, Katie has a particular love for emergency and critical care. Seeing a critical patient that she’s taken care of for days turn a corner and start to improve is extremely rewarding.
On the personal side of things, Katie is a die-hard WVU football fan (let’s GOOOOO Mountaineers!), and she loves live music, baking, binge-watching TV, and reading. She recently lost her dog, Holly, so she and her husband have decided to spend some time traveling while they wait for their next pet to find them.
Wendy Kennel Lead
Wendy grew up in Idaho. She spent much of middle school and high school volunteering with the elderly. She is now attending school for her veterinary technician degree. Wendy also currently volunteers with Street Dogz, helping to run 3 pet food distribution organizations in the valley, and picking up donations in the Henderson area. She’s a self-described crazy dog lady—she fosters for a few Las Vegas/Henderson rescues. “Rescue, foster, and adopt” is a motto she lives by.
Outside of work, Wendy enjoys staying at home, snuggling with her dogs and hubby, and watching TV or reading a great book at night. Her four-legged family members consist of 5 rescue dogs: 2 Australian Cattle dog mixes named Dundee and Arkham; a Swiss Mountain dog named Jasmine; a Wire-haired Terrier mix named Pepper; and a “pocket pittie” named Gizmo.
