Lisa

I joined the Poway Animal Hospital family in November of 2017.
Before coming here I was a Veterinary Assistant for 7 years. My passion for animals came at a young age of 12 years old, when my aunt gave me a miniature dachshund. I cared for her as my own and she quickly became my best friend. She lived to be about 18 years old and I learned what it meant to care for an animal to the best of my abilities. Later on in Life I decided that I wanted to help other people learn to care for their pets properly, so I went to Pima Medical Institute and received my certificate in veterinary assistance.
I enjoy what I do each day and I continue to strive to learn as much as I can on pet health care so I can spread my knowledge to others.

I was found under a car with a very serious leg injury on June 17, 2010. I had been injured for 5 days. I was 8 weeks old, VERY hungry and VERY skinny. My heroes at Poway Animal Hospital could not save my leg but they saved my life. I have totally recovered now and live in a wonderful new home!
