Chila completed a course in Veterinary Assisting at Hennepin Techinical College and began working at Golden Valley and Greenbrier Animal Hospitals in the winter of 2018 after completing an internship with the Animal Humane Society. Chila has always loved animals, especially exotic species and has a strong interest in learning more about them. She hopes to fill her home with many exotic pets in the future.
Growing up in the Seward neighborhood of Minneapolis, Chi felt the one cat she shared her home with was just not enough. Because her parents did not want more pets, she took it upon herself to take the neighbor’s dog to raise it as her own! That was short lived, however, because Chila discovered her backyard playhouse and lack of food was probably not the best place to keep a pet.
One of Chila’s favorite things to do around the clinic is to give the boarding animals extra love and attention while they’re staying with us. Both she and the animals benefit from this calming experience! When she’s not cuddling the pets here, Chila loves watching movies, especially Marvel or DC Comics movies and trying out different types of make-up and hairstyles. She also enjoys playing with her Yorkie-Poo, T-Bone.
