Eva J.

Veterinary Technician

I was born and raised in South Florida and moved to Utah in November of 2020. I began working in this field in April of 2016. I started as a kennel tech and was trained to become a vet tech. Outside of work, I enjoy Disney, genealogy, visiting historical places, spending time with family, playing games, reading, hiking, kayaking, fishing, jet skiing (basically anything water-related). I love the beach and the ocean. I travel with my husband any chance we get. Bruce is our pitbull baby, and he's the best boy.


Veterinary Technician

I was born and raised in Mexico City. I studied veterinary medicine in Mexico, and three years ago, I came to Utah to do an internship at an animal hospital. I fell in love with the place, so I moved here to continue my education. I ended up marrying the sweetest guy around. I believe you’re never too tired to dance and never too full for dessert!
