Esmerelda was born in California and grew up between California and Mexico. Her dad has a huge farm with lots of animals where she learned to love them all. She has been working at Story Road Animal Hospital since 2006. She has a warm and wonderful way with our clients and their pets. She loves to go out into the lobby and chat with the clients to make sure they feel as welcome in our hospital as they would in her home.

In her own words:

Being surrounded by animals while growing up, and now in my career, is the best experience…ever. I figure if I were a client, I would like someone to gently handle and truly care for my pets the way they are cared for here at Story Road Animal Hospital. Since I’ve been working here for over nine years, I’ve had the opportunity to build long term relationships with many of our clients. Clients place trust and confidence in me every time they bring in their pets. This is so important to me. I will never take it for granted.
