Marisa, Veterinary Technician
Marisa grew up in Apple Valley, MN. Her love for animals began as a child and she spent lots of time bringing home stray cats to her parents to patch up and find homes for. When she graduated high school, Marisa knew she wanted to continue to make a difference in the life of animals and began her education at the Minnesota School of Business. In 2007, she graduated with her Associates in Applied Science in Veterinary Technology.
After graduating, Marisa worked at a kitty-only clinic for 6 years before joining Maryland Avenue Pet Hospital in January 2013. As a Veterinary Technician, Marisa enjoys all aspects of the job including dentistry, radiology, assisting in surgery and being a resource for client’s questions regarding their pets.
Marisa currently lives in South Saint Paul with her husband and their daughter. The newest member to Marisa’s family is Arya, a 3 year old Greyhound Mix, who enjoys chasing toys, jumping in the air and is even happy to play dress-up with Marisa's daughter!
In Marisa’s free time outside of work, she enjoys watching her daughter grow and spending time with friends and family. She also enjoys gardening, photography and couponing!
