I have worked in the animal care profession since 1996. During that year, I enrolled with Regional Occupational Programs (R.O.P.) and received completion certificates in Animal Care I, and in the following year, Animal Care II. During this time I began internship work at Orange Olive Veterinary Hospital in Orange. In 1997 I was hired and worked for three years under Dr. Pannier, DVM.
I moved on to other veterinary hospitals and continued my technician work through 2001. While working as the lead technician for Elizabeth Garcia DVM at Sunrise Pet Clinic, I started my pet sitting services part time. Later that year, I branched out with my own business, The Wizard of Paws, and thanks to my wonderful clients that have been with me since the beginning and all my new clients that have given me the privilege and trust of caring for their furry, feathered, finned and scaled family members, my business has continued to grow and thrive.
Although I have a great deal of experience in the medical aspect of caring for animals, my favorite part is still pampering, comforting, spoiling and loving your pets. They all have become my extended family and I have been blessed with this “job”! I am grateful to be living one of the passions that is closest to my heart.
Thank you for your loyalty and trust,
