paw Team Spotlight
Jorge Medrano
Hospital Manager
Jorge was born and raised in Fairfax, VA, and has been in the animal care field for over 25 years. He started as a kennel attendant when he was 16-years-old at our very own University Veterinary Clinic with Dr. David Jackson. Over the years with hard work, dedication, compassion and determination he advanced his career to include working at the National Zoo as an animal keeper and leading animal care teams as a manager at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Jorge understands the importance of working collaboratively as a team to ensure that the best possible patient care and client service is provided.

In his free time, Jorge enjoys the outdoors, traveling and spending time with his wife and their two boys. They also share their home with their two dogs (Emma, a Spanador, and Boone, a Rhodesian Ridgeback) and 2 Maine Coon cats (Remington and Rigby). In addition, Jorge takes great joy and pride in tending to his very own flock of chickens.

"My life has come full circle now that I'm back 'home' with VCA University Veterinary Clinic. I am fortunate to be able to return to my roots and to be surrounded by people who share my love for animals and compassion for the families they belong to."
