Tell us a little bit about yourself: I was born and raised in Japan, and moved to the United States when I was 18 years old. I attended vet tech school in Fresno. I have worked in general practice, emergency hospital. I decided to become a vet tech when I discovered the career existed.
Do you have any animal companions of your own? I have three cats: Tama (from dumpster), Kiki (from sky) and Chibita (from air conditioning duct).
What do you do when you’re away from the hospital? Outside work I enjoy gardening, traveling, hiking, and volunteering with VET SOS.
