I grew up in upstate NY then decided I needed some adventure and moved to sunny South Florida with my French Bulldog Bruno and my cat Binx. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, arts and crafts and puzzles.
Animals are around us constantly and when they are not you can feel their absence and question the silence. A pet always seems to know what you are in need of most, whether it is the need to smile and laugh after a long day, a companion to sit and comfort you or to have someone there just to be doted upon. Animals have played an important part in teaching me many of the values that need to be learned in this life. They have taught me about compassion, patience and understanding. They have made me feel loved and helped me feel and cope with loss. I have also learned that it is important to stop, relax, and project a positive energy for not only myself but for those around me. They have and continue to provide me with so much that I feel the need to do all I can to make their lives as comfortable and as enjoyable as possible. I feel that it is a privilege to be able to connect and help beings so special.

I was born and raised in sunny south Florida near the beautiful glades. I am attending Broward College and working towards an Associates of Arts degree. In my free time I enjoy doing almost anything outside such as kayaking, mudding and going to the beach.
My entire life I have been surrounded by animals whether it was playing in the neighbors barn, trying to catch the chickens in the back yard or cruising around on the golf cart with Sundance (my family’s dog who unfortunately passed away last spring). It wasn’t till a was 19 that I was given the pleasure to work in a kennel and from that point on majority of my time was spent with so many incredible and unique dogs and cats you cant help but fall in love with. The more I worked with these animals the more I grew fonder and interested in learning about them. Working at VCA Wiles Road Animal Hospital has not only taught me so much but truly takes the time to educate our clients. So much compassion in one hospital. I couldn’t be more blessed to work with theses amazing pets, clients, co-workers & doctors!

School: Florida State University, Biology
I was born in Lima, Peru and came to the US when I was 8. I attended The Florida State University and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Biological Science with a minor in Chemistry. I currently have two dogs and three guinea pigs. I love to take my dogs out with me to the beach, the park and anywhere they can go. When I’m not with them or at work I really enjoy being outdoors, preferably on horseback, volunteering at wildlife sanctuaries, or laying at home watching Netflix and snuggling with my boys.
My why: I have loved animals since as far back as I can remember. I've always had a passion for helping animals, and as I grew older and acquired more knowledge that passion only strengthened. I became more interested in not only veterinary medicine, but also in gaining a thorough background in animal behavior to better understand our companions and strengthen the bond between us. I chose to work at VCA because I know that in doing so I am part of a team that genuinely cares about animals and making a difference in their lives. Working at VCA Wiles Road allows me to learn more about cutting-edge techniques and veterinary skills and takes me a step closer to my dream of one day becoming a veterinarian myself.
Client ServiceTracey Dougherty
I have been with VCA since 2006. I love my time at the front desk assisting our clients. I am the proud mother of a son, Brian and we share our home with three cats, Ari, Squeak and Keani. I love spending my free time painting, visiting art museums and attending Brian's concerts.
Why do I believe in VCA?
To be perfectly honest, I knew nothing about VCA when I was first hired, only that I was desperate for a job & yes, I love animals. What I would learn in the years to come is my "Why".
I have learned that the doctors are amazingly dedicated.
The leaders constantly inspire me to be better.
Co-workers commit daily acts of kindness.
Everyone really cares about what we do & everyday brings a chance to make a difference.
I have also learned that I love people as well as animals!
I believe in VCA whole-heartedly!
Oh-& I am not just an employee, I am a client because my animals deserve the very BEST!!
