Vanessa joined Plaza Del Amo Animal Hospital in 2019 as a veterinary assistant. She came to us with years of experience as a veterinary receptionist, assistant, pharmacy, and lab technician. Vanessa always knew she wanted to work with animals and most enjoys wellness appointments and providing preventative care. When Vanessa is not at work she enjoys going to the beach and taking well-deserved naps. One of Vanessa most fulfilling moments is seeing her patients for recheck appointments, seeing them doing better after an issue and wagging their happy tails again! Vanessa also enjoys distracting pets that are getting vaccinations/injections at our facility. Some ways she likes to distract pets is by patting their heads, talking to them, or giving them delicious treats!
