Abby joined the team of Valley Verde Veterinarians in January, 2021 while attending Pima Community College to become a certified veterinary technician. She was born and raised in Tempe, AZ and moved to Tucson in 2019. Her love for veterinary medicine started when she was 10 years old and attended a camp to learn first aid in horses. Her current interests include surgery and she loves to take radiographs. In the future, in addition to her current responsibilities with dogs and cats, she hopes to also take care of horses and be involved in equine sports medicine. She is excited to learn something new every day at work. Outside of clinic life, she enjoys horseback riding and barrel racing, hiking and spending time with her friends and family.
