Registered Veterinary TechniciansI recently became a Registered Veterinary Technician while working for a previous veterinary clinic and learned many skills. I yearned for more knowledge so I decided to join South Bay Animal Hospital and Pet Resort. I have been having a great time being part of the amazing staff at our hospital and operating the amazing equipment that we have especially the in-house blood test machines. On my days off, I like to read materials to gain knowledge of up-to-date veterinary technician information. When I have read too much, my cat Rasa Libre (DSH), my kitten Rocky Horror (DSH, three-legged, polydactyl), and my tarantula Cling-On (14 years old) will let me know it is time to hangout! I like to hangout with friends and family in the kitchen while we are cooking something up during a conversation. I also like to stay active with fitness or busy exploring locations big and small. One day, I hope to specialize in Clinical Pathology as I love looking at blood samples.

Registered Veterinary TechniciansAnimals have always been a passion of mine. I have been working in the animal care field for 15 years, from running doggie daycare and boarding facilities to Animal Control. I decided to pursue a career in Veterinary Technology only about 5 years ago, because I felt I wanted to be more proactive in the care of animals, and am now a Registered Veterinary Technician. Although right now I primarily work with dogs and cats, reptiles and exotics are my passion. I someday hope to work in an exotics-only hospital. I also happen to own a reptile business outside of working at the vet hospital. I currently own about 60 reptiles, a guinea pig named Meatball, and my dog Mira, pictured with me.

Emergency Registered Veterinary TechnicianEver since I was a young girl, I knew my passion was being in the presence of animals. Today I am living my dream by working as a veterinary technician and helping our doctors keep our pets healthy and happy. I can not imagine doing anything else. I attended Foothill college and graduated from their veterinary technology program in 2011. I then later received by California license as a registered veterinary technician in 2012. My areas of interest are emergency medicine and preventative care. I am bilingual, and thoroughly enjoy translating to Spanish speakers. When I am not working, I am at home in the company of my husband, wild toddler child, and two domestic short hair cats named Pepe and Frida.
Technician AssistantI have been working with animals for about 4 years now and I am one of the lucky people who can get to say that they love going to work! I love being able to help make a difference in the lives of pets and their families. At home, I have a beautiful little girl, 2 dogs and a cat that I love coming home to.
