Office Support Staff

Raika joined the Medical Academic Center staff in April 2018.  She is obedience trained, most of the time. Her responsibilities include: providing security and creating smiles and a relaxed atmosphere for our customers.  Although she may not be around for each event, as she’s pretty choosy, she’s always here in spirit.  In her spare time she enjoys traveling, the outdoors, digging up her owners yard, playing one-way fetch and spending time with her family.
