President and CEO
Dr. Autumn Fanning has been the owner, principal veterinarian and president at Vets Here! since its inception in 2010. She has been in mixed animal clinical practice since graduating from Veterinary school at Oregon State University in 2006. Previous clinical and business opportunities at both large and small animal practices prepared Dr. Fanning to create a company that changes the way veterinary medicine is experienced by her clients and patients. Dr. Fanning grew up in Santa Ynez and chose to return to her hometown to launch the first Vet’s Here! vehicles.
A proud mother of two daughters, she is excited to grow Vet’s Here! within her local community, as well as seek expansion of the mobile veterinary concept that she is so passionate about. Vet’s Here! also allows Dr. Fanning to share her passion of the science of Veterinary Medicine at local events such as Touch-a-Truck and Einstein day where children and community members can learn about the Veterinary profession and the differences in patient and client experience that make Vet’s Here! exceptional.
Roni joined the Vet’s Here! Team in 2014 and has worked in the veterinary field since 2012. She earned her Bachelor’s of Science in Aquatic Biology from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2011 and has since worked with many wild species such as the Giant Panda, California sea lion and Florida manatee before returning to Santa Barbara. Her experience at Vet’s Here! makes her an integral part of the development and optimization of practice operations, client service and expansion, and she is excited to help bring the high quality care and convenience of mobile veterinary care to pet communities in the Santa Ynez and Santa Barbara areas.
In her free time, Roni is an avid musician and yogi, loves spending time with her cat, Cool Beans, and enjoys being active outdoors, hiking, cycling and anything ocean related. She loves all the activities Santa Barbara has to offer and tries to volunteer during her free time, while serving as an ambassador for the Santa Barbara Chamber of Commerce.
