Dr. Nicole Guastamacchio of Newport harbor animal hospital

When I was young, I developed a heart for veterinary medicine after a traumatic event with one of my pet bunnies. When my family influenced me to consider a different career path, I received a degree in Mathematics and Applied Science with specialization in Accounting and Management from UCLA. However, I realized that my real passion was with relieving animal suffering and health care.

From there, I attended the University of Davis School of Veterinary Medicine where I developed a love for nutrition and internal medicine. Following graduation, I was drawn to Newport Harbor Animal Hospital after seeing the level of commitment to patient care by all of the staff. I love working with such a fabulous team and contributing my expertise!

While I love all animals, I currently live with three cats, Gia, Leo and Roxy. When I get a chance, I love being outdoors spending time hiking, biking, paddle boarding and kayaking. I also enjoy lifting weights and trying out new vegan baking recipes. In the future, I look forward to traveling with my fiancee.
