Vanessa is a Veterinary Technician Assistant with Ironwood. She has been working in the veterinary field since 2014 which was sparked by her time in high school attending the Veterinary Assistant program at the East Valley Institute of Technology. By attending that program, once Vanessa was out of high school she was already ready for a career in veterinary medicine. Out of school, Vanessa started as a kennel attendant and eventually gained even experience to become a veterinary assistant. We are thrilled to have this animal lover in our hospital and we know your pets will be happy to see her smiling face during their next visit.
When not in the hospital, you will find Vanessa with her chihuahua, hiking in the beautiful Arizona desert as well as the occasional trip to San Diego for some much needed fun at the beach.
