Meet the Carlsbad Animal Hospital Care Team

Molly Wescoat

Practice Manager and Co-Owner

Growing up in Maine, Molly’s passion for animal care started when she was 13 and volunteered at the local animal shelter. Even through college, she would go back and work there in the summers. She never left the veterinary field and is now the Practice Manager and Co-Owner of Carlsbad Animal Hospital!

After college, Molly moved to San Diego and got a job at a small animal practice. She moved on to another veterinary hospital in 1995 and stayed there as a Veterinary Technician for ten years—she immediately knew she wanted to do this work for the rest of her life. In January 2004, she joined the team at Carlsbad Animal Hospital. She ensures that everything at the clinic runs smoothly, and is constantly coming up with ways to help the team do their job better.Molly is the proud parent of two Scottish teriers, Reggie Lamar and Wheezy, whose shenanigans always make Molly laugh. When she’s not at work, Molly enjoys being outdoors, especially hiking. She also loves cooking, and says she rarely uses a recipe!
