Lead Veterinary Assistant

Christine, a 2009 Animal Science Grad from Cal Poly Pomona, joined Covina Animal Hospital in the summer of 2006 as a veterinary assistant. Now a Lead, she oversees and supervises 5 front veterinary assistants for our rapidly growing practice. Having grown up with chihuahuas all her life, she quickly earned her title “The Chihuahua Whisperer” from our beloved clients. When it comes to these little creatures, her motto has always been "the feistier, the better!" Christine has 3 little chihuahuas of her own, as well as her late chihuahua, Sugar, and her late golden retriever mix, Gary, whom she holds near and dear to her heart. On her days off she enjoys spending time with her fiance and snuggling up with her fur babies while watching a good horror flick. She is also an avid collector and huge fan of Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.
