Dr. Maria Soltero-Rivera received her DVM from Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. After that, she returned to her native Puerto Rico for a year-long small animal surgical internship at Veterinary Specialty Hospital in San Juan, followed by a small animal rotating internship at Long Island Veterinary Specialists. More recently, Dr. Soltero-Rivera is a board certified dentist and she has been spending her time lecturing at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, which is where she completed her residency in Dentistry and Oral Surgery. Her clinical interests include diagnosis and treatment of oral tumors and oral and maxillofacial trauma repair.
When she's not working she can be found playing at the beach with her 2 year old, Aurora, her husband, Bernardo, and their 2 Chihuahuas, Olivia and Pickles. She also loves cooking, reading and running. Maria can probably spill the beans on all of her famous brother's magic tricks after all those years of being his lovely assistant.
