Patient Care Coordinators


Patient Care Coordinator and Certified Veterinary Assistant

I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona and attended veterinary technician school in San Diego, California. I enjoy family time with my husband, our son and our three dogs. We love watching the Arizona sports teams. The occasional shopping day at Home Goods is always at the top of my list and I love sushi.

I’ve been working in Veterinary Medicine since 2013. I’m grateful to have experienced general practice, oncology, and internal medicine. Working for Dr. Aguirre has brought my education to the next level and I appreciate his kindness and experience on a daily basis. I grew up with a love of animals and feel fortunate to be making a living in this field. Especially as I’m able to teach our son how to love and care for our own pets. The field of veterinary medicine is advancing and growing, which is an exciting career to be a part of.

Patient Care Coordinator

Phoenix, Arizona has been the only place I’m happy to call home. I’m a huge Arizona Cardinals fan but still cheer on and support all AZ sports teams. I have a large family and place much importance on spending quality time with them and making time for friends also.

I’ve been in the veterinary field since 2010. I spent the first 4 years at a busy veterinary hospital and the following 5 years at a veterinary mortuary assisting pet owners through the grief of losing their beloved pets. At Salt River Veterinary Specialists, it’s my pleasure to assist our clients and their pets to feel comfortable while they are here and do everything possible to accurately and efficiently coordinate their care between our hospital and the referring veterinarians.

I’ve always had pets in my life and find the relationship so special and rewarding. Unfortunately, my dog passed away in 2016 and I have yet to add another canine to our family. However, I have rescued 4 cats that have helped fill our home with love and companionship. Having our furry companions has always been a necessity and I’m happy to work with a team and clients that feel the same way!

I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. I enjoy time with my husband, our family, and our two dogs. We make it a hobby to get out and explore different and new culinary experiences.

I’ve enjoyed working in the veterinary field since 2007. The best part of being in veterinary medicine is all about making a difference. This is why I love working with Dr. Aguirre so much. He consistently combines his education and experience with an outstanding daily example of care and concern for each patient. It’s our priority to ensure sure that our patients receive the very best care we have to offer.

Licensed Veterinary Technician

I moved to Arizona in 2017 to enjoy warmer weather. I was born and raised in Long Island, New York and now love desert living with the many hiking adventures around the valley. I have a cat and a beagle mix. My dog loves going hiking with me too! I also enjoy a healthy vegetarian lifestyle and appreciate all of the local organic produce and farmers markets.

After graduating from Suny Delhi’s Veterinary Technician Program in 2007, I worked in general practice, emergency and internal medicine. I love working with Dr. Aguirre because everything is approached with such heartfelt care and concern for the patients. He treats every animal like they are his very own. Dr. Aguirre’s medicine is very progressive and he’s always willing to teach and inform his entire team.
