    Linda Alfaro

    I’ve been a technician for 25 years and have worked for VCA Mission Animal Hospital for about 22 of those years. During my 25 years in this field I’ve been fortunate enough to work along side many great Veterinarians. I’ve also done some emergency critical care work. The greatest reward for me is being able to help our patients live a happy healthy life along side their caregivers.
