Arlene Fitzgerald, Veterinary Assistant

Arlene was born and raised in the Coachella Valley. She left for awhile and lived in Texas and Arizona, but realized that this is where her home and heart are. Arlene graduated high school in 1999. Even in high school while everyone else enjoyed their summer breaks, Arlene was busy being a lifeguard. She has a very diverse employment background that includes three years as a pharmacy technician and three years as an early childhood education pre-school teacher, both of which gave her excellent people skills. Arlene came to Valley Animal Medical Center as a receptionist in 2007. Within six months of being in that position, she had exceeded all expectations and at the request of the Medical Director was promoted to the position of room nurse, where she has excelled since. Recognizing her desire to grow and expand her skills, Arlene has once again been promoted to work with the emergency staff and become a veterinary assistant.
Arlene has three amazing sons, ages 12, 11 and 7 years. All of her spare time is devoted to them, whether it's watching them participate in football, baseball, or other community youth sports. Arlene takes an active role in their lives and feels very lucky to have such a wonderful family, a job where she can help animals and continue to improve herself and be part of the Valley team.
