Technician SupervisorDiana R
Diana was originally born in North Carolina but moved to South Florida at a young age. She is a Certified Veterinary Technician and brings over 7 years of experience to our team here at Central Park. She loves working with both people and their pets, and it instills in her the greatest satisfaction to help educate our clients on proper animal care. When not at work, she enjoys spending time outdoors with her daughter and her pets. She has quite the collection: three dogs, two cats, and two turtles! All of her pets have been rescued either through the hospital or from the wild outdoors of south Florida!
"Most of my life I have loved and cared for various animals, devoting myself wholeheartedly to their well-being. But it's not just about the pets. Through my years of working in the Veterinary field I have met so many beautiful people. I know that NO other job could give me the same satisfaction. I found where I belong!"
Irene was originally born in Brooklyn, New York. She moved to South Florida with her husband almost 25 years ago. Irene has over 24 years of experience working with animals in the Veterinary field and has been with Central Park for over 5 years. She is married with two grown daughters. Her pets include a sweet dog named "Buddy", a parakeet named "Twiggs", and a Guinea Pig she often babysits (and spoils) named "Rufus".
"When I was in high school I was involved with their animal care program, where I truly found a love for animals. And I have always enjoyed the company of people. So working with people directly and taking care of their pets, I find very rewarding. I get a lot of satisfaction when I see a sick dog leave our hospital feeling better."
Joe was born and raised in South Florida. He is currently attending College in pursue of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Sciences. He has been working in the animal healthcare field for 5 years and has been a part of the VCA family for over 3! He joined Central Park almost a year ago. Although he is pet-less now, he cares for his roommates cats as if they were his own!
"The fact that animals have no ill intent is a beautiful thing. Animals can't voice their pain or discomfort, so working in a field where I can address when they are in trouble, and then make them better, makes me really proud of what I do."
Sue was born in Atlanta, Georgia and moved to South Florida as a small child.

Her most recent adoption is shown in the photograph: "Lola" a Shih Tzu whom she rescued off the streets of south Florida.
"I love working with animals and the unconditional love they give. I enjoy working with and helping people who have the same love and respect for animals that I do. I work in a rewarding field."
