Taylor Marin
Veterinary Assistant
I've been working for VCA Desert Dunes Animal Hospital for a little over 1 year now, and it is also the first year that I have officially worked in a veterinary practice. I spent my first 3 months in boarding/bathing with hopes of cross-training between departments since it has always been my goal to work alongside a veterinarian. I finally joined on as a veterinary assistant last December. Other experiences include being a former animal care associate at The Grand Paw (2 years) and an intern at Desert Veterinary Specialists during my senior year at La Quinta High School (2014).

I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Cal Poly Pomona with a bachelor's degree in Animal Science (2018). I hope to continue my education in veterinary medicine and I am open to either return to school to earn a RVT certification, go for my Master's degree, or go to vet school.

My hobbies include drawing (digital and traditional illustration), playing video games, going to concerts, spending time with my dogs, and attending comic/anime/gaming conventions.
