Kennel AssistantAletheia Guerrero
My name is Aletheia Guerrero and I was born in Texas, when I was in fifth grade my family and I moved to florida. Ever since I was a little girl I remember always having a pet whether it was a cat, dog, or hamster. From a young age I learned to take care of animals and love them for each of their own uniqueness and personality. When I was 18 I bought my first ferret named fidget and realized she needed a friend so a year later bought her a friend named luna, which is short for lunatic. Now my oldest ferret is 7 years old and my younger ferret is 6. My parents also own a Shiba Inu named Suki who is 1years old, they plan on showing and breeding her when she becomes a little older. Today I am lucky to say that I am a proud member of VCA and am grateful to have been given the chance to work with the amazing staff and animals.
Why I come to work everyday
The reason why I enjoy working with animals is simple, my passion and love for them keeps me going. Being able to walk into a job where there are little smiling faces waiting for me to take care of them makes it all worth it. Knowing that I can help to be a part of an animals wellness gives me great pleasure.
Kennel AssistantAnnie Parker
My name is Annie and I am new to VCA Boca Greens Animal Hospitals, but already I feel like part of the family. I am a proud mother of a 3 ½ year old daughter, and a 9 year old curr dog named Tya. In my spare time I enjoy traveling the country with horses, polo grooming, breaking and training horses, and barrel racing. I’m very much a free spirit, I love doing new things and traveling and I like all outdoor activities, I’m a country girl to my core.
Why I come to work everyday…
I was always told growing up if you wake up and love what you do then you truly don’t work a day in your life. Well that’s exactly how I feel I look forward to coming to work everyday because it’s not just my job, it’s my passion. I started in this field 10 years ago where I began with large animals, and I enjoyed every minute of it. About 4 years ago I started assisting at small animal hospitals and I can truly say I love it just as much. I enjoy helping the sick animals as well as providing owners with preventive care. Whether it is annual vaccinations, bloodwork, or surgery, I love assisting the vet to help ensure the patient get the best care possible! I love helping them anyway I can.

Why I come to work everyday
I do my job because I love working with and being around animals. Knowing that people are counting on me to do my part is what makes me get up and go to work each day, and I enjoy having work to do. Keeping the environment clean and the animals comfortable makes me feel good.
