    Alesa C

    Alesa is a native to South Florida. She has been with Central Park Animal Hospital for close to 2 years and enjoys the experience of working with both clients and their pets. She is currently on the long academic road of Veterinary medicine and hopes to be more involved with patients in the near future. She has three dogs at home: "Milkdud" and "Lady", both of the terrier breed, and "Zoe", a small Shih tzu rescue.

    "I've always been fascinated with the Animal Kingdom. When I was small I had the habit of 'adopting' any animal (or insect) I could get my hands on. Lizards, frogs, snakes, turtles, stray cats and dogs, and even the occasional opossum! My house was a zoo and I thrived in it. My passion for animal science and medicine grew from these experiences."

    Stephanie J

    Stephanie was born and raised just outside of New York City, in a small town called Glens Falls. She recently moved down to South Florida and has been with Central Park Animal Hospital for almost a year. She has a lot of experience in the animal healthcare field, having previously worked as a technician. She has two cats at home, "Marley" and "Cole", both rescued at a young age.

    "Animals are my passion. I absolutely hate seeing an animal that's in trouble or sick. That's why I chose to work in an environment that is dedicated to the care and the treatment of animals. I go home feeling blessed that I was able to make a difference in the lives of pets and their owners."

    Ashley M

    Ashley was born in Michigan and lived most of her childhood in the snow. She moved to south Florida over 6 years ago with her family and has been enjoying the change of weather. Her love for animals has always been present in her life, and she has always held a special fondness for horses. Whether it be general animal medicine or specifically equine studies, Ashley knows her future will be dedicated to animals and their health and well-being. She is currently enrolling in a local college in pursuit of her future academics. At her home, or should we say ranch, she has 7 horses, 3 dogs, 3 cats, a chinchilla, a rabbit, and a pond full of fish! 

    "Ever since I was little, I have been fascinated with medicine and I love being around animals. I have always wanted a career that would allow me to combine both of my passions, and working at VCA Central Park Animal Hospital allows me to do so. I love being able to make a difference in a pets life."

    Heather M

    Heather was originally born in Florida but spent most of her childhood in rural Louisiana. Growing up there, she was exposed to a variety of animals, including dogs, cats, horses, cows, pigs, and chickens! She moved to South Florida to work on her academics and pursue a career in the Veterinary field. Heather has over 3 years of experience working in animal hospitals. She has two pets at home, "Remi" her Foxhound mix rescued from the recent Arizona flooding, and her spoiled cat "Dexter" whom she bottle-fed since infancy. 

    "I love animals. Helping them is my passion. It's the worst to see animals suffer or in trouble, but it's the greatest feeling when you can help them. My job is very rewarding because I can observe the process of animals being helped everyday!"
