Born and raised in McAllen, Texas, Doris received her Veterinary Assistant diploma in 2006 from Penn Foster University. She joined the Mission Veterinary Hospital staff in 2007 as a receptionist, and was promoted in 2009 to a Veterinary Technician position. Doris chose to pursue this field because her love for all animals was undeniable. The feeling of saving lives, maintaining good health in these animals, and educating clients on proper care and maintenance is one of her daily goals. She feels animals are people too.
Doris and her Son live in McAllen. They also share their home with twelve dogs and four cats, which the majority of her pets were rescues.
When time permits, Doris enjoys keeping fit, shopping, traveling, and spending quality time with friends and family.
