Angelica has always had a strong bond with animals. Growing up with a mom who worked in the veterinary field as well as doing wildlife rescue allowed her to experience helping animals of all kinds from a very young age. In 2011, she started her working career as a kennel tech at a veterinary hospital. Throughout her ten years of working there she gained experience in many areas of the clinic and ended up finding her true calling as veterinary customer service representative. “It is so important to feel heard when reaching out to your vet for care. As a pet parent myself, I understand that and enjoy being able to help people get the care needed for their pets.” When not working Angelica enjoys spending time with her family, her pets, and doing art.
