Laressa Dimalanta, Hospital Manager

RVT, LATG

Laressa grew up on the Pacific islands of Guam and Hawaii caring for the animals she would come across with her Gramma. She graduated with an Associate of Applied Science degree in Veterinary Technology from Parkland College in Illinois in 1997 and then moved to the bay area. She is a Registered Veterinary Technician, Laboratory Animal Technologist, and Technical Writer, having a combined 20+ years in veterinary private practice, biomedical research, and as a veterinary technology instructor at a local college. She has been active in representing RVTs on the California Veterinary Medical Association board since 1999 by being an advocate for the veterinary technology profession and making recommendations for veterinary medical legislative issues. She served several terms as a state RVT representative in Research and Education, and now serves as the District IX (San Mateo, San Francisco, and Santa Clara counties) representative to the RVT Committee. She loves spending time with her three rambunctious children, her fiance, Mittens—her grey cat, KJ and JK—her two peach-faced lovebirds, and Ragnarok and Anora—her children's betta fish. She enjoys spending time in Seattle, reading, dancing hula, and writing. She is an advocate for the welfare of animals, and promotes lifelong education and mentoring for all veterinary staff members.
