Client ServiceCarmen Declet
Carmen Declet is a client service representative with New York Veterinary Hospital. She was born and raised in upper west side Harlem and has always possessed a passion for animals and always had family pets. One of her fondest memories was the greatest birthday gift, a Pekingese poodle named Benny. From that moment on Carmen grew a warm heart for all pets, she now owns an amazing cat named Gracie whom she adores so much. Carmen formerly worked for the Archdiocese of New York at St Ann's parochial School for 13 years as a secretary and promoted to bookkeeper. Carmen is grateful to have such a wonderful opportunity to work at New York veterinary hospital to grow and learn more about the care of animals' well-being.
