Diana G., Veterinary Assistant

Diana grew up as a Navy brat, so her family couldn’t keep dogs and cats regularly. She would satisfy her desire to spend time with animals by visiting neighbors’ pets. It wasn’t long before dreams of working in the veterinary profession started to form!

After graduating high school in Virginia, Diana attended California State Polytechnic University in Pomona to study Animal Science, earning her degree in 2005. She then moved to Costa Mesa with friends, working for a year at a local kennel before joining the VCA Airport Irvine Animal Hospital team in the summer of 2006.

Diana lives with her dog, Xyla, who suffers from an autoimmune disease and must take a low dose of steroids regularly. It’s not always easy taking care of Xyla, but Diana wouldn’t trade the lessons she’s learned for anything!

When she’s not at work, you’ll probably find Diana with her nose in a book. She’s especially fond of George R.R. Martin, Douglas Adams, David Sedaris, and Diane Ackerman. Diana also likes staying creative by making bead jewelry and other crafts.
