Diana – Certified Veterinary Technician
Courtney – Veterinary Assistant
Originally from Colorado, I have been living in Arizona since 8th grade. I have always been very passionate about animals and after graduating high school in 2009, there was no question of my career choice. My Vet Assisting career began in 2010, Animal Care Hospital has been a very large part of that. I left for a few short years and returned in 2015, which was truly the greatest decision to come back. I have 7 fur babies, 6 dogs (Rascal, Daisy, Rex. Sophie,Bella and Ellie) and one kitty whom I bottle fed when he was brought into the clinic at a young age, named Theodore. I recently started my own little family delivering my 1st and only son in September 2016. Other than working (which I love), I also love to bake, craft and hang out at home with my family in my off time. I like to think of Animal Care Hospital as my second family, I love the clinic and everyone I work with.
