Hospital Owner and Manager
Shauna has been working in the veterinary field since she was a teenager. She met Dr. Lidikay (at a veterinary hospital, of course!) in his first year of vet school and they were married soon after. After his graduation from UC Davis, they purchased Fillmore Animal Hospital in 2005. It has truly become a family venture, and a journey the Lidikay family is grateful to be on. After Dr. Lidikay’s death in early 2017, she kept the hospital going and has two wonderful vets that work for her. Shauna enjoys furthering her knowledge of veterinary medicine and practice management with classes and continuing education and loves developing relationships with FAH’s wonderful clients and patients. She shares her home with her four children (Sebastian, Gabriel, Peyton, and Scarlet), four dogs, three cats, an African Sulcata Tortoise, and a couple of miniature horses.
Client Service Representative
Suzie has been the familiar face of Fillmore Animal Hospital since 1984. Suzie grew up always wanting to be around animals. She spent many blissful days at a family friend’s ranch, with horses, mules, chickens, dogs, and cats. Her favorite parts of working at Fillmore Animal Hospital are seeing the medical procedures and learning new things every day. Suzie has a son, Samuel, who gave her two beautiful grandchildren, Madison and Isaac. Her favorite four-legged friend, Dexter, is the only kid at home right now and loves being with his mommy. Outside of work she enjoys spending time with her husband/best friend Russell and her grandkids, as well as cross-stitching, stenciling and calligraphy.
Client Service Representative
Carlena recently joined our FAH team as both a customer service representative and veterinary assistant. She brings years of experience and loves what she does! Her favorite part of working at FAH is knowing that she’s keeping our animal friends happy and healthy for years to come.
Mayra joined the FAH team in 2014. She loves seeing her patients’ health improve with treatment and preventive care and is convinced that all the hugs and kisses she lavishes upon them are an important part of the process as well! She loves animals and is in heaven working with different species here. Her favorite parts of working at Fillmore Animal Hospital are her coworkers and the unpredictability of never knowing what emergency is going to come through the door. She has a son and daughter that are her world and, of course, some fur children as well. Mayra is a mom to Raider the pittie, several silly Frenchies, Tiki the cat, and little Spike the Yorkie mix. Outside of work, she loves family time, going to the beach, hiking, and anything adventurous.
Maddie is one of our amazing Veterinary Assistants! She enjoys taking care of all the animals that come through our hospital, especially the ones that need a little extra love. In her free time, she is an avid car enthusiast and loves spending time with her American Bulldog, Isaac, and her cat, Olive.
Jamie is our fantastic veterinary assistant who keeps our hospital clean and all those endless tasks like laundry done! Her favorite part of working at FAH is being with her co-workers and all the animals. When she’s not working she enjoys playing guitar and riding her bike.
