    Oscar Martinez
    Veterinary Tech School: Long Technical College

    My name is Oscar and I have lived in the Coachella Valley for most of my life. I graduated from Coachella Valley High School in 2004 and went to Long Technical College in Phoenix, AZ to study and become a Veterinary Technician. While in school I worked for Dr. Hirsch in Phoenix for a year and a half. I missed my family and decided to move back to the Coachella Valley with my son and two cats (Fiona and Phelix). I have added two dogs to our family, a male mastiff mix (Ruphus) and a female pomeranian (zhu zhu). I have been here at VCA All Creatures since 2008. The staff and clients have enriched my professional and personal experiences. I love being able to put the sparkle back into the eyes of our four legged family members.

    School: University of Cincinnati, B.S. Biology

    Hey everyone!  I'm from Cincinnati originally and have travelled the country working with animals of all shapes and sizes. My background includes working at a salmon hatchery as an AmeriCorps volunteer in Alaska, an educator at a children's museum in Hawaii, a bird specialist in Texas, and a zookeeper and rehabilitator here in the Coachella Valley. No creature is too small or slimy!  I started working with domestics at an emergency hospital but the lure of the exotics and a previous working relationship with Dr. Fenton was all I needed to come here to All Creatures Animal Hospital.  I love the amazing relationship we are able to cultivate with our clients and I look forward to meeting you!
