An Escondido native, Amy graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in 2013 with a bachelors in Animal Science. Her focuses included equine reproduction, exercise physiology, and foaling. She has worked in the emergency veterinary field since 2012 and joined Animal Urgent Care's team in Summer 2015.
When not at the ER, Amy also works as an Adventure Caravan Guide at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park where she shares the joys of baby rhinos with guests and feeds giraffes on a regular basis.
Amy has one cat, Octavia, who enjoys sitting on the back of her desk chair as she records weekly geek podcasts for her favorite nerdy TV shows like The Flash and Agent Carter. Her favorite holiday is the San Diego Comic-Con and she considers the water that falls from the sky to be actual magic.
