Maria, Veterinary Technician


Since I was a young child I was always taking care of animals. I grew up in Balltown, Iowa on my family owned farm.  I grew up around pigs, cows, chickens, cats and dogs.  I also had some pocket pets growing up as well such as hamsters and gerbils.  I was always outside taking care of the animals, whether it was trying to heal kittens from their upper respiratory infections or spending time with one of the many dogs I had in my life.  Growing up I knew I wanted to work with animals, during high school I got interested in biology and human anatomy.  That led me to Upper Iowa for 2 years working on a degree in forensic science, which I then switched to biology. I really started to miss working with animals and taking care of them.  I then transferred to the Veterinary Technician program at Kirkwood Community College.  In my free time I enjoy going on adventures with my dog Buck who I adopted through the Vet Tech Program at Kirkwood.  I enjoy being able to help other people understand and keep their animals healthy so I am so glad to be apart of the VCA Edgewood Animal Hospital Team!
