Elissa joined the VCA Vets & Pets family in September of 2020 after graduating with a degree in Animal Behavior. Growing up, she was always around animals and would have any pet her parents would allow. Elissa is passionate about all animals and takes any experience to learn about why they behave the way that they do. She currently works full-time as a zookeeper and comes in for shifts at the hospital to get her fix of veterinary medicine! In her free time, Elissa likes to relax at home with her four pet rats and her Australian Shepherd, Bella.
