Renée’s stepfather was a science teacher, and his classroom was a miniature zoo full of reptiles, amphibians, and small mammals. Growing up, Renée spent many hours caring for these creatures, and the experience made a lasting impression. She knew that she would love to work hands-on with pets in whatever way she could! Now, Renée gets to do just that as a member of Fuerte Animal Hospital’s Veterinary Assistant team.
Originally from Florida, Renée first came across an opening here at Fuerte Animal Hospital online, and didn’t waste any time applying. She was happy to join the clinic team a short time later as a Veterinary Assistant! Renée especially likes working with laboratory samples, and loves to chat one-on-one with the area’s pet owners and meet their adorable animal companions.
Renée’s interests outside of work include traveling, hiking, and caring for her family and pets at home. She and her husband have nine wonderful children, and also share their lives with two cats, a dog, a bearded dragon, and several guppies.
