    I graduated from Cal Poly Pomona and have been a Vet Assistant since 2006. I joined VCA Santa Anita in 2012. I absolutely love what I do, especially taking care of patients.  One of my favorite things to do is to go to the dog park with my pooch. When I am not at work I love to listen to music.
