Hi, I'm Ariana, and I was born and raised in Boston, MA. I moved to Orlando in 1999. I graduated from Florida Institute of Animal Arts as a veterinary technician in 2003. I worked at a daytime veterinary hospital for 3 years before I started my adventures in The Animal Emergency Center in December 2009. I have always wanted to work with animals and have a particular interest in emergency medicine. I have 3 cats: Baby is a 14 year old persian, Reggae and Cheetohs are both 2 year old domestic short haired cats. I also have a crazy 1 1/2 year old blue pit bull named Na'Ji.
My name is Savannah. Growing up, I've always had an interest in veterinary medicine and never really had the opportunity to get hands-on experience until my senior year of high school doing my senior project with Dr. Lawrence Pultz, DVM, at Town and Country. I graduated from Oviedo High School in May of 2013 and continue to pursue my Biology degree. I have 5 amazing fur babies: 2 dogs, Kodi and Oakley, a cat named Molly, a horse named Hunter and my newest addition is my mini pig, Pearl. I have a particular interest in equine and large animal husbandry. I started working at the Animal Emergency Center in September of 2014 as the first patient care nurse at the facility and fell in love with emergency medicine. I’m so happy to be a part of this amazing team.
