Mara Maldonado, VTg, MBA

Since December 1997 I started working as a veterinary assistant in a small animal clinic. My passion and interest in the animals grew each day, which encouraged me to finish my undergraduate studies in Veterinary Technology in the Medical Sciences Campus for 2001. In June 2004 I joined the team at VSH, where I had the opportunity to continue expanding my knowledge so we can offer the best care and service that my patients deserve. Gladly I'll be waiting to provide the support and guidance they need to care for their pets.
