    Dr. Allie Vignocchi


    Dr. Vignocchi joins us from a suburb of Chicago where she and her sister grew up. She attended Colorado State University for undergrad and fell in love with the mountains. Upon graduation, she moved back to Illinois where she was a clinic manager and veterinary technician. Dr. Vignocchi then graduated from the University of Illinois with her DVM degree. After being in landlocked states her whole life, San Diego was calling her name. She packed up her two pets, Emma, a Newfoundland, and Norman, a hound mix, embarking on her next adventure. On her days off, Dr. Vignocchi enjoys exploring with her dogs as well as cooking handed down family recipes from her Italian ancestors. She hopes to take advantage of all there is in beautiful California and maybe even try surfing one of these days! More Details >>
