I'm originally from Arcadia, California. I grew up in the sunny Los Angeles area. I always knew I wanted to work with animals. I went to Cornell University for my college years, earning degrees in biology and animal science. During my college years, I was fascinated by wildlife medicine. I learned and participated in wildlife rehabilitation of the native California wildlife, as well as spent a semester abroad in the African plains learning about wildlife management. I spent a few years working as a surgical technician at another VCA hospital before going to veterinary school. I attended Washington State University and graduated in 2018. I dabbled in emergency medicine, but have been a general practitioner in the east valley.
I love making road trips, traveling, and many outdoor activities, which makes Arizona an ideal place for me. I have a calico cat named Calliope, who is my only princess pet at home. I enjoy and dabble in music and also enjoy playing games in my spare time. I am very close to my culture and speak Spanish fluently.
My areas of interest are small animal ultrasound, soft tissue surgery, preventative medicine, and exotics. Ofrezco servicios en español.
