Joanna Garcia, Veterinary Technician

Los Angeles native Joanna moved to Phoenix with her family when she was 9 years old.  She got her first dog — a black cocker spaniel named Mickey — two years later when she was 11.

“I have always had a strong love for animals,” says Joanna who attended the Veterinary Assistant Program at Apollo College.  She joined the team at North Kenilworth Veterinary Care in August of 2012, and was promoted to our OSHA Safety Officer shortly after starting.

Joanna finds assisting in the care and treatment of our animal patients very rewarding personally.  She also appreciates that the mission of the veterinarians and technicians is to provide conscientious and individualized care  for each pet and its owner.

Away from work, Joanna enjoys reading, going to the park, and spending time with her family, which includes pitbull, Negra, Chiquita the Chihuahua, and her puppies.
