Dr. Kimberly Daffner - Clinic Owner/Veterinarian
Born and raised in Las Vegas, Dr. Daffner escaped the desert and moved to Redondo Beach in April, 2010. She purchased Family Pet Clinic of Redondo Beach in 2012 and has loved every minute of business ownership. Dr. Daffner received a B.S. from University Nevada Las Vegas in 1987 and then her professional veterinary medical degree from Colorado State University in 1991. She considers herself a "family practitioner" and she celebrates the bond between humans and their furry friends. Her medical passions include ultrasound, dentistry, chemotherapy, and specialty surgeries for bulldogs such as soft palate resection, entropion, stenotic nares, and corkscrew tail amputations. In her spare time she reads, plays lots and lots of tennis, loves and adores her two pups, Cozy and Dexxie, and enjoys a glass of good red wine with a delicious home cooked meal.
Dr. Christine Pott - DVM
Born and raised in Denver, Colorado as the oldest of 9 children. She received her BS in Animal Science in 1977 and graduated with her veterinary degree in 1981 from Colorado State University. Due to a lack of jobs in Colorado at the time, she came to California for a short time to get experience and has remained here ever since. She has been at Family Pet Clinic since 2002. In her spare time she clogs on an exhibition team called Cripple Creek Cloggers and is involved at her church working with children.
Dr. Angela Randall - DVM
Born and raised in southern California, but Dr. Randall has called other places home including New York, Michigan and Indiana. She completed her Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Biology and Management from UC Davis in 2002. In 2009, she relocated from California to attend Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine and completed her degree in 2013. Dr. Randall enjoys traveling, running, hiking, kayaking, knitting, cooking and anything that involves the sun and warm weather. She is excited to join the Family and provide professional, compassionate care to the members of your family.
As a child, Dr. Joyce Wong always wanted to learn everything she could about whatever animal she was interested in at the time. As she got older, her love of science started to bloom. She chose the veterinary profession because it allows her to exercise her passion for the sciences while working directly with the animals that she loves!
Dr. Wong was raised in the Los Angeles suburbs and attended UC Davis to study animal science. She worked as a veterinary technician for two years after graduation, then returned to UC Davis for veterinary school. Dr. Wong has special interests in opthalmology and small furry exotic mammal medicine (rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, mice, chinchillas, and ferrets). She is also passionate about animal behavior and loves strengthening the bond between pets and people by improving mannerisms and mood.
When she isn't caring for pets here at Family Pet Clinic, Dr. Wong can be found playing Ultimate Frisbee, traveling, spending time outdoors, or hanging out with her terrier mix Noodle.
Born in Denver, Colorado then later raised in Torrance, CA. She earned her B.S in Marine Biology at UCLA and her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine at Western University of Health Sciences in California. Shortly after graduating, she moved to Tucson, Arizona and began her veterinary career at a local emergency hospital, then in a small animal practice setting. After being away from the south bay for 4 years, she is very happy to be back home. Dr. Hanna considers being a veterinarian a true blessing and she is excited to be the newest addition to Family Pet Clinic. When she is not caring for your pets, she enjoys having outdoor adventures with her husband, baby and dog, learning new recipes from cuisines across the world, traveling, and enjoying the California sun.
I have been working at Family Pet Clinic since 2009. I bring my dogs Sage and Obi to work with me everyday. I love my job, and enjoy accomodating our clients and their pets.
Lysken - Veterinary Technician
I have always been a huge animal lover; I grew up in the country taking in any strays and injured wildlife that came my way. I have been working at Family Pet Clinic since December 2006. I returned to school in 2009 with a desire to know more about the animals I work with and help to treat. I enjoyed being taught things like how body systems work, nutrition, x-ray, anesthesia, and medical procedures such as dental cleanings. I passed the California exam in 2012 earning me the title of RVT (Registered Veterinary Technician). I continue to work with a team who treats all animals like their own pets and I'm loving every moment of it!
I was born and raised in Redondo Beach. I graduated from Mira Costa High School and majored in criminal justice at El Camino College. I am an animal lover and have always had a dog apart of my family growing up.
Mark - Veterinary Assistant
I am a graduate of South High School in Torrance. I became interested in animals while growing up with my own pets. I especially like dogs. I have 3 of my own, all Bichon Frise.
I first started at Family Pet Clinic as a volunteer in December, 2007. Since then, I have had the fortune of becoming a part-time staff member. I have always enjoyed being around animals and, as a child, had hopes of becoming a Veterinarian. Being able to see the practice first hand has only made those hopes stronger. I am now positive of my future career goals. I enjoy coming to work every shift and it feels great to know that I can be a part of helping animals.

I came to live at Family Pet Clinic in October of 2013 when a caring person brought me here because I had an injury to my back-left paw. Dr. Pott was unable to save my leg but I’ve grown up just fine without it. I was just a small baby then and l fell in love with the staff here and decided to make this my home. Their phones are filled with pictures of me and their hearts are filled with my love.
