    Vivian Soliman
    School: Cal Poly

    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.

    The reason I have always wanted to work with animals is because they do not have a voice. We are their voice. I also love spending time with my family and my puppy Charger.
