Veterinary Tech School: Penn Foster
Cindy is a native San Franciscan and she knew she had a passion for animals since she was a little girl. Attending International Studies Academy high school she was required to complete 100 hours of community service. She completed those hours at her neighborhood pet store and did not leave until 15 years later. She is completing the Veterinary Assistant Certification and is excited to get started in the Veterinary Field. She has worked for over 15 years in the grooming industry and have advanced from assistant groomer to head groomer during that time. Cindy was seeing a number of her client's with health issues which led her to seek more knowledge in the Veterinary field and ultimately changing her career. Knowing that caring for animals in a medical setting has been her dream, she began classes through Penn Foster College to become a Veterinary Assistant. She decided to conquer her dream at VCA Bayshore in March of 2015. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, hanging out with family and friends and taking Snow, her cute bichon with the most adorable mohwak that she colors in lieu of the Giants and 49ers games, and Stewie, her rumbustious frenchie, to the dog park. Her husband is the proud owner of their two cats, Skittles and Snickers. We are exciting to have her part of our team with her experience of handling a variety of cats and dogs, and senior pets. Her desire to learn the veterinary field and having such wonderful experience in the grooming industry has led to a compassionate understanding of the pet's needs.
