As a young girl I spent every summer on my grandparents’ farm in Colombia. That's where I first discovered my love for animals. Since then that love has only grown leading me to pursue a career in the veterinary field. I'm naturally an affectionate and compassionate soul. These qualities allow me to care for all pets as if they were my own. Whether they're boarding or hospitalized or just hanging out for the day I make sure they all feel loved and comfortable. In my spare time I spend time with my daughter, and I love writing songs, singing & playing the guitar.
When your pet needs care, we’re here to help. Riverside Animal Hospital South is staffed by a team of nurturing professionals, committed to the health and wellness of animals in New York. We are dedicated providers of wellness care, preventative medicine, internal medicine, and more.
I have been working at Riverside Animal Hospital since 1990! Here I am pictured with my extremely scruffy rescue mutt named Willy and my cat with a name too embarrassing to mention. We all share the apartment with my better half and my kids, when they are home from college.
I am a long-time, proud Upper Westsider. Working with the Riverside Family not only allows me to help animals, but also to connect to the people who love them. When not working, I have a regular yoga practice, love reading, spending time with family and friends, going to movies, seeing lots of live music and traveling.
