I'm a Bay Area native with a passion for animals and a love for exploring the world. My journey in the field of veterinary medicine began when I graduated from Foothill College in 2013 with a Bachelor's degree in Biology, specializing in Animal Medicine. Becoming a Registered Veterinary Technician was a dream come true, and since then, I've been proudly serving the furry companions who bring joy to people's lives.
In 2015, I took my skills to the next level and joined the dynamic team at BAVS, where I found my niche in the Radiation Therapy Department. Working there has been incredibly fulfilling, and I was drawn even deeper into the world of medical care and compassion.
Not one to settle, I decided to expand my horizons and further my education. This led me to Loma Linda University, where I pursued my dream of becoming a Radiation Therapist. In 2021, my hard work paid off, and I proudly earned my degree. Now, I can confidently say that I'm well-equipped to contribute to the fight against cancer, providing crucial support to patients during their toughest battles.
Of course, my love for animals extends beyond my work, as evidenced by my four fur children: Zuko, the energetic Australian Shepherd; Jax, the cunning feline; and the adorable duo of BunMi and Olive, my two bunnies. They keep me on my toes and remind me every day of the unconditional love and joy animals bring into our lives.
When I'm not in the clinic or cuddling with my furry buddies, you can find me out and about, exploring new places and trying different cuisines. Food is a passion of mine, and I'm always on the lookout for unique dishes and flavors. Another hobby that keeps me active is playing volleyball. It's not just a sport; it's a way for me to stay connected with friends and enjoy the thrill of teamwork.
Aside from the more physical activities, I also love expressing my creativity through various art forms. Whether it's painting, sketching, or even crafting, I find immense joy in bringing my imagination to life.
But perhaps the most rewarding aspect of my work is being the voice for our patients who can't speak for themselves. Animals, especially those fighting cancer, deserve all the love, care, and advocacy we can give them. And being part of that journey, supporting both the animals and their owners is what makes my job truly fulfilling.
So, that's a little glimpse into who I am—a Bay Area native, an animal lover, an adventurer, a foodie, a volleyball enthusiast, and an artist. But above all, I'm someone dedicated to making a positive impact in the lives of animals and the people who cherish them.
