Dr. Christina Sisk

Director of Veterinary Services


On March 1st, 2019, the Humane Society of Ventura County welcomed Dr. Christina Sisk to the team as the new Director of Veterinary Services. Dr. Sisk will oversee our spay and neuter clinic as well as the health and wellbeing of all animals in our care.

Dr. Sisk, a native of McHenry, Illinois, completed her undergraduate degree in Animal Sciences in 2000 from the University of Illinois and Veterinary School at the University of Illinois in 2004. Following Veterinary School, Dr. Sisk worked in private practice outside of Chicago for seven years. During this time she started doing relief work for a large shelter doing spay and neuter surgeries and shelter medicine and found that she enjoyed working in shelters and wanted to pursue her career in that direction. From 2011 until February of 2019, Dr. Sisk worked at the Santa Barbara Humane Society as their Director of Veterinary Services, serving the shelter and community with outstanding results.

Research has continuously shown that areas with strong spay and neuter programs, along with community support, have dramatically reduced shelter populations. Dr. Sisk will be working towards increasing the spay and neuter capacity at the Humane Society of Ventura County so that we can better serve the needs of our community.

When Dr. Sisk is not helping to improve the lives of animals in need, she enjoys spending time with her husband and children. Dr. Sisk has two rescue animals of her own, a dog adorably named Chester Copperpot, and a one-eyed rescue cat named Rammers.
