My parents tell a story about me when I was in elementary school, telling my teacher I would grow up to be a veterinarian. I have always loved animals (to my mother's displeasure when it came to snakes!) So, it should come as no surprise as I chose veterinary medicine as my career.
I have wanted to be a veterinarian for as long as I can remember. Even before I can remember, my Mom tells me that I wandered towards any dog I saw at the park. I was always sneaking lizards, baby birds, and the occasional stray kitten home, and trying to "save" them.
Dr. Jennifer Osborne is a Northern California native. She began her journey into veterinary medicine at the age of 15. She initially started by working as a kennel attendant in a veterinary practice, then moved up to a veterinary assistant prior to going to college.
I was born in Cerritos, California and was raised in the Los Angeles/Orange County area. I knew that I wanted to be a veterinarian since I was in the 8th grade. For my undergraduate career, I attended Cal Poly Pomona and received a Bachelor Degree in Animal Science.
Dr. Marissa Robertson grew up down the street from Newport Harbor Animal Hospital and had the pleasure of bringing her many pets here while she was growing up. At the age of 17, she started shadowing some of the doctors and quickly fell in love with veterinary medicine.
