Ariana Parongao
Veterinary Assistant

My name is Ariana, and I am originally from California. I have always had a passion for working with animals. I took a Veterinary Assistant elective in high school and after graduating from high school in San Diego, I attended PIMA Medical Institute and received my Associate's Degree as well as my certification as a Veterinary Assistant.

I have been working in the veterinary industry for the past 5 years and counting. I am very passionate about this field and I am currently enrolled in our Penn Foster online course to become a Licensed Veterinary Technician.

I have a Bichon named Marlei (yes, she is named after Bob Marley!), a brown tabby named Bobba Fett, and a long-haired Siamese named Meeko. My goal every day is to extend the love I have for my own pets to my patients.
