Client ServiceMary Ann Ilaria
Hi, I'm Mary Ann. You can't miss me when you walk in to VCA Vets & Pets Animal Hospital- I'm the one with the sunglasses (Bright lights give me migraines!)
I'm originally from New Jersey, but I've been living in the Bay Area since 1975. I've always had dogs in my life, ever since my folks brought home my first dog Kingie, a black Cocker Spaniel, when I was a year old.
I worked in the data communications industry for 24 years, volunteered at the Humane Society of Silicon Valley, then owned a jewelry store before finding my dream job at VCA Vets & Pets in 2006. I love meeting all the dogs who come in! They may be a little apprehensive at first, but they warm up pretty quickly after a few doggie cookies.
In my spare time, I enjoy making and reparing jewelry, having dinner with friends, and watching television. My "kids", Dominic (Rat Terrier) and Rickie (Shepherd mix), share my home and my heart.
