My name is Kimberly Castro (Kim) and I have just joined the family of VCA Newman Edgewater here in Florida as an associate veterinarian. I am a native Floridian growing up on a farm in South Florida. This is where I discovered my dream of being a vet at the age of 8. With wonderful people around me and hard work, I realized that dream when I graduated from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1993. I have spent the last 17 years of my career as owner and sole practitioner of my own clinic. It has been an experience I would not have traded, but it was time for a change. That's where VCA Newman Edgewater came in. Their building is in very close proximity to where my old clinic is. They afforded me the opportunity to focus on being a vet without all the worries of a business owner, too. Plus, I could bring my clients and staff with me. How cool is that?!
Everyone at VCA Newman Edgewater have been nothing short of welcoming, and I look forward to a long lasting relationship with my new VCA family!
