Cherise Z.

Oncology Department Manager
At a young age, Cherise knew that her passion and love for animals would bring her towards a career in veterinary medicine. She began working in the veterinary field in 2011 at a VCA general practice hospital where she learned hands-on technical skills and invaluable knowledge. In 2013, she transferred to VCA Veterinary Specialists of the Valley in the Emergency and Critical Care Department. From there, Cherise transitioned into the Internal Medicine Department and then became the Veterinary Specialists of the Valley Internal Medicine Department Manager. She is currently enrolled in the VCA Pennfoster RVT program and is studying to obtain her certification.

Cherise is a busy mother of three. She enjoys spending time with her family; her husband Miguel, and three beautiful children; daughter Celeste 6 years, son Ayden 3 years, and youngest son Jaxson 5 months. They love to go camping and hiking with their beloved Labrador, Dakota.
