Rockford Road Animal Hospital Veterinarians - Doctor of Veterinary Medicine
My first glance into veterinary medicine was when I was eight years old visiting my dad at his job for “Take Your Kid to WorkDay” school event. He used to work as a technician at an animal clinic owned by a family friend. Once surrounded by animals and a team of people dedicated to their care, it did not take long for me to realize that becoming a veterinarian would be a lifelong passion of mine.
As a Cuban-American originally from Miami, Florida, if you speak Spanish, please feel welcome to “saludarme!” After spending the majority of my time in the Sunshine State, I moved up north to study veterinary medicine at the University of Minnesota, graduating in 2018. After graduation, I completed a year-long small animal rotating internship at the Animal Emergency and Referral Center of Minnesota.
Throughout my veterinary career, I have developed interests in diagnostic imaging, ophthalmology and dermatology. I am also passionate about owner education, community outreach, and providing mentorship for prospective veterinary students.
Outside of RRAH, I enjoy spending time with my partner Elora and sweet cinnamon bun of a cat named Pattypan, who was named after the squash. I also love jamming out on my ukulele and guitar, exploring the cities by bicycle, and, as a proud foodie, I am always on the lookout for good restaurants in the Cities.
I am excited to meet you and your furry loved ones, and will happily take any food spots you recommend!
