Karla was born in El Salvador where the quality of pet care is not the best simply because client education is not as readily available as it is in the United States. She moved to the States when she was 5 years old and always kept her desire to one day be able to have and care for a dog or cat someday. Though she took care of many fishes during her childhood, she was still not satisfied. Now Karla lives with her animal enthusiast best friend and has been able take care of and fall in love with her friend's cat and dog. Karla is also now the mother of her fluffy baby, Horchata-- a Lionhead Rabbit mix. Karla joined the VCA team in October to further help her fulfill her childhood dream of caring for pets and being able to provide better client education of quality pet care. "I am here to help keep smiles continually on pets' and owners' faces in the same way they have brought smiles to my face."
