Dr. Ogino was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. She attended the University of Hawaii-Manoa and received her B.A. in Zoology, with a minor in History. She went on to receive her veterinary degree at Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine, where she had quite an experience learning how to live in the snow! After practicing several years at a small animal private practice in Northern California, the sun and surf called her back, and she migrated south to beautiful Torrance.
Dr. Ogino enjoys doing any kind of activity on the water (most especially surfing), hiking wit her dog, traveling, and is an avid reader and baker. Dr. Ogino is owned by her border collie/lab retriever mix Pilikia (=trouble in Hawaiian) and sister kitties Sachi and Sookie. Her professional interests include dermatology, internal medicine, and dentistry. The next goal in her professional career is to become certified in Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine.
