Marina PremoliVeterinary Assistant
Ever since Marina can remember animals have been her passion. She has worked with and cared for a wide variety of animals throughout her life and career as a veterinary assistant. From peacocks, potbelly pigs, and rabbits to horses, cats and dogs, she loves them all. She recently moved back to Orange County where she grew up, after spending several years on the central coast. While attending school in Monterey California, Marina had the opportunity to complete clinal hours at the SPCA Wildlife Center, which provided her the amazing experience of working with birds of prey, and many other magnificent wild creatures. Marina also has a deep love and appreciation for the outdoors. She enjoys backpacking, camping, reading and gardening. On the weekends she usually hits the trails with her pups or her horse. Marina's little critter family includes her three dogs, horse, cat and African Senegal parrot. She hopes her love for animals and nature will cultivate a more compassionate world for all creatures, where all animals are treated with compassion and respect.
