Growing up in the Philippines I have always been surrounded by pets like dogs and cats as well as farm animals every time I spent a summer vacation in my grandparent’s place. And although I was not aware of how it would influence me, I guess, it wasn’t a surprise when I, later on, decided to pursue Veterinary Medicine. And as they say, the rest is history.

Prior to moving to Canada, I was involved in other fields of the veterinary profession. Aside from being a small animal practitioner during my early years as a vet, I was also involved in research in the academy. I also worked as a poultry and swine practitioner and for 7 years I lived and worked in Saudi Arabia as a dairy practitioner and also became a quarantine officer for the Ministry of Agriculture of Saudi Arabia. When I moved to Canada and after obtaining my license in 1996, I decided to work as a mixed animal practitioner in the Interlake region of Manitoba for a short period of time but eventually came back to Toronto to pursue the small animal practice. Vets Toronto Kingston Road Animal Hospital is one of the practices I worked with when I came back to Toronto. I also worked at the Vet Emergency Clinic of Toronto for 2 years before eventually joining Banks Animal Hospital as a full-time associate in Sept of 1999 and became a practice owner in 2004.

I enjoyed every case I encountered in practice, whether they are simple or challenging cases in dermatology, ophthalmology, internal medicine, or surgery. What I love about my job is I get to meet a lot of people and pets and experience with them the beauty of human and animal bonding. I myself have my own dog, Snoopy, who is now in his senior years. In my free time, I love cooking and baking for my two boys who are both in their 20’s. I love communing with nature, as well as gardening, and always look forward to my regular visits to some of the beautiful parks in our city.
