Holly
RVT
Veterinary Technician

Holly grew up in Turlock, California with many adopted feathered and four-legged friends that she had found on farms, on the streets, in pounds and through the rescue groups that she and her parents worked with.  She grew up wanting to be a veterinarian and spent one exchange year in New Zealand during high school living on a sheep farm and volunteering for a mixed-practice veterinarian there.

During her year in New Zealand, the travel bug struck and her interest in different cultures began to take over.  Her first college years were spent at UC Berkeley obtaining BA’s in Ethnic Studies and Anthropology, with a minor in Native American Studies.  After graduation, she went to live in Guatemala and Argentina for a year.  In Argentina, she worked with underprivileged nursery school children in shanty towns in the mornings, and taught English to middle school children in the afternoons.  Back in the United States, she spent a year working in the Four Corners area on land, water, and sovereignty rights with Native American and Mexican American people.  She then returned to the Bay Area to work with several other non-profits.

After a time, she decided to reinvestigate going to veterinary school. She volunteered at the Marine Mammal Center in Marin for a few years, then she started working at a veterinary practice as a receptionist and technician while she went to CSU-Hayward to get her BS in Biology.

Prior to coming to University Veterinary Hospital, she worked as a veterinary technician for 18 years, working in both general practices and emergency hospitals. She became a Registered Veterinary Technician in 2009. 

In her free time, she enjoys travelling, dancing, reading, and being a homebody with her four-legged dog Kylie, her three-legged dog Apple and her cat Gracie. 

At University Veterinary Hospital, she feels like she has found her calling and loves to care for our dog and cat patients. She would love to meet your pet!
