Main Content

Raised in Huntington Park, California, Karen is the middle child out of 4 siblings. Her hobbies include gardening, arts and crafts, cooking, and hiking. When she is done with the work day, her two dogs Chabela and Chica welcome her home and cuddle up beside her.

Growing up, Karen always had dogs in the family as well as birds, fish, and small pocket pets like mice. She has always loved animals since youth but there was one experience that sparked her curiosity in the field of veterinary medicine. Her Dalmatian puppy Minnie had parvo virus—a disease that is often fatal to puppies—and Karen was deeply saddened because she did not understand how her dog had gotten sick or why she passed away. Karen, although initially upset, was also intrigued by what had happened and she took it upon herself to learn more about animal diseases and treatment. This experience, in other words, impacted Karen in ways that would eventually lead her to the veterinary field.

Karen initially was studying business in college since she was given an opportunity to work in the banking industry; however, she had a feeling that this career path was not aligning with her interests. She reflected on other options and confirmed that she wanted to enroll in the Veterinary Technician program at Pierce College instead. During this time, Karen worked at a doggy daycare facility and learned more about animals and particular breeds. During work and school, she was able to receive hands-on experience/training with various species like cats, dogs, livestock and small exotics. Karen is now part of the Rainbow Vet staff and recently received her associates’ degree from Pierce College in 2017. Karen enjoys assisting in surgery because she feels every day is a new learning experience and she likes seeing pets leave the hospital in good health. She is currently preparing for the national exam to get her RVT license.
