Esmeralda has been in the veterinary field for 9 years. Ever since she could remember, she knew she wanted to work with animals. At 15 years of age, she proposed to herself that she would work at an animal hospital that was near her home. Sure enough, after completing the veterinary assistant program she soon started working there. At that hospital 7 years ago, she met Dr. Monaco and has continued to work alongside her. She values the time spent with her son, family and friends. She owns a tortoiseshell cat named Katniss and her favorite canine breed are chihuahuas! Also enjoys riding horses, dancing, trying new restaurants and visiting new places in her free time. Esmeralda is beyond excited to be a part of a team where building an amazing work environment is important, as well as creating relationships with owners and their pets while providing great care!
