An Escondido native, Amy graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in 2013 with a bachelor's degree 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.
Amy also works as an Adventure Caravan Guide at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. There, she treats guests to VIP excursions into the field enclosures, where they can feed giraffes and, if they're lucky, pet a baby rhino.
Amy has one cat, Octavia, and a German Shepherd named Roan, who she rescued when he came in as a stray to Animal Urgent Care. She enjoys long walks on the beach [with her dog], performing in local theater, and searching for the perfect, fair-trade, shade grown coffee.
