hello world!

Clinical Field Training Leader - Exotics

My name is Eva, I was raised in NYC and have been working with animals across the country since 2011. The sunshine state has been home for the past 5 years. My love of animals led me to the veterinary field, which I knew I wanted to be part of since I was 7 years old. We were given a small, sickly kitten we aptly named Fleabag, and she won my heart for the next 16 years of her life. I have shared my home with too many pets to count, and currently have 2 spoiled cats (Babygirl and Volta), a green iguana (Alastor Moody), a bearded dragon (Godric Gryffindor), and 2 finches (Aule and Yavanna). Outside of the veterinary field, I love reading, knitting, exploring new cities and countries, and being surrounded by nature.

I am a Registered Vterinary Technician in California, and have a special interest in advanced anesthesia monitoring, surgical assistance, emergency and critical care, and especially exotic animal medicine. Reptiles, birds, exotic mammals, and fish are completely unique and absolutely fascinating to me, and advanced knowledge and veterinary care is not yet easily found in many areas of the world. Therefore, providing quality medicine and advocacy for these species is a lifelong goal of mine.

Coming to this company is like a breath of fresh air, I feel very supported and trusted by everyone, and know that my ideas and input are not only valued, they are applied to further the growth of the team. I have a lot of skills I'm happy to teach the clinical staff, but also so much to learn from everyone, which makes my role as a clinical field training leader so rewarding.
