Brieanna - Assistant Office Manager
Hello! I am Brieanna. I was born and raised in San Jose, CA and I also lived a few years in Sacramento. I'm a bay girl and I missed my city so I came back to San Jose to pursue my career in Business! I've been in the veterinary field for about 5 years and I absolutely love it! I grew up with a love for animals as there were many in my family. From fishes, hermit crabs, dogs and cats to cows, chickens, horses and sheep and two lamas! My background in Business Administration has helped me grow as one of our leaders here at our practice. I strive for building a strong supportive team which I am very pleased in how we support each other in our growth. One of my goals in my career is to build client relationships and have a great client experience. I don't see them just as one of our customers. I like to have conversation and hope to see them and their pet again! When I am not at work I like to spend time with family and friends. My hobbies include, playing the piano, reading, and watching movies.
