Desiree – Veterinary Nurse


I was born and raised in California. I am new to Florida. I moved here in March of 2014 with my family, our 85 pound mixed poodle Savannah Marie, who shares the house with Stitch a three legged orange tabby and his side kick Lilo who is also an orange tabby.

Ever since I was a young child I have had a deep love for animals. I lived every moment I could in the equestrian world showing horses and competing in all the different categories. My favorite was Eventing! I was able to pursue this all the way into adult hood. I absolutely loved riding through the arena on my horse so in tune to each other’s movements, it was as if we were one.

During my life I have had many opportunities to engage and learn about animals. When my husband and I got married we got a once in a lifetime chance to live and raise our girls on a 50,000 acre cattle ranch. It was amazing to be able to guide and watch my children share the same love for animals that I have.

In the last 10 years I have been working in veterinary hospitals. I have been thriving and pushing to learn and gain knowledge on a daily basis so that in return I can guide, and educate with compassion and knowledge. I always look for the opportunities to continue to obtain knowledge so that I am always able to give the most to everyone around me.

One of the many rewards from this job is observing the love that is shared between people and their furry family members. To be able to see the light in their eyes when you witness life changing experiences.
