Julie Dizon, Practice Manager
I have been a manager in the Veterinary Field since 2003 and I have been at Mission Valley Veterinary Clinic since February of 2006. I am a member of the Veterinary Hospital Manager's Association. My furry family consists of 2 lovable, rescued mutts, Boo Boo and Dottie and 2 wonderful cats, Lily Belle and Raisin. My love for animals and knowledge of their care continues to grow and I look forward to build on my experience with the clients and staff of Mission Valley Veterinary Clinic.
Stella Vargas, Lead Veterinary Nurse
I have been at Mission Valley Veterinary Clinic since November 2014. I have been working in the field for over 6 years and hold a passion for the exotic animals. Most of my veterinary experience has been in specialty and emergency care. On my spare time I love to paint and spend time at music festivals. My future plans include visiting the Buddist Temple in Thailand and receiving my RVT license. I dream to one day work at an exotic animal and bird rehabilitation unit in Guatemala, where my family is originally from.
Jerardo Silva, Veterinary Nurse
I am currently pursuing a career as a registered veterinary technician. I have always liked animals ever since I was a child and I am excited to finally work in a field that I love. I look forward in learning ways to help all types of animals and hopefully one day be able to run my own veterinary practice.
Andrew Paratore, Veterinary Nurse
I graduated from Carrington College in May of 2014. My interest in working with animals began when I was young from helping my aunt with grooming. Being Deaf does not stop me from giving quality care that your pet needs. I aim to improve communication between the doctors and the deaf clients. During my off hours, I enjoy reading, studying Japanese and watching shows online.
