Val is a Southern California native who moved to the Bay Area in 2012. She attended the Mt. San Antonio Community College Veterinary Technology Program and has been a RVT since 2010. She has been in the veterinary field for over 14 years now, half of that time with Banfield, and she can't imagine doing anything else. Through the years, Val has realized she not only has a passion for animals, but also has a passion for working with people. She prides herself in being an advocate for each and every one of our clients and patients, as well as developing and helping others grow both personally and professionally. In her spare time, Val can usually be found at home with her love, Konrad, their two kitties, Tomas and Harvey, and her favorite little Chihuahua friend, Sebastian.
