Hello, my name is Andy Nguyen (pronounced "win"). I am the Hospital Manager at Disney Pet Hospital in Concord, CA. I was born in Vietnam and came to the U.S. when I was 5 years old. I was raised in Joplin, Missouri until the age of 12; then my entire family moved to sunny California... Thank god! Living in the Bay Area has helped me to learn about other world cultures and appreciate my own. One aspect of culture that I am passionate about is food. I love to eat and cook Vietnamese, Thai, Indian, and Italian food, and to entertain friends and family. What's for dinner!
At home, I have two beautiful dogs: Luna, a Maltese-Westie mix who's now 16, and Ima, a Toy Poodle who's 2. (My beloved second dog Sol passed away 3 years ago when she was 8.) I have learned so much from being a dog owner, like patience and unconditional love. I also enjoy doing outdoor activities, such as camping, hiking, and snowboarding, and, when I have a chance, traveling around the world with my husband.
I have worked in retail for most of my professional career, from sale consulting to interior designing, to management. Some of my work skills are building trusting relationships with colleagues and creating supportive and effective work environments.
