Chris graduated from California State University Fullerton in 2012, obtaining a bachelor's degree in communication with an emphasis in entertainment studies, and immediately began working as a manager of a major retail chain. Having experienced a high level of stress, and a desire to learn more, Chris sought out a profession in the field of veterinary medicine. Chris had previously had his pet Chihuahua, Fawn, signed up on an Optimum Wellness Plan through Banfield and decided to search for career opportunities there. Chris has since been fully trained as both a Client Service Coordinator as well as a Veterinary Assistant, and is looking into pathways to become a RVT. Chris has been working with Banfield since April 2014.
