Dr. Debbie is an Associate Veterinarian at Placentia Veterinary Clinic. For as long as she can remember she has always wanted to be a Veterinarian. When she was little, there was always pets around the family house. To her it felt like they lived on a farm and she loved it! Her favorite thing about working with animals are the puppy snuggles, tail ways, and kitty head bumps.

Dr. Debbie knew she was in the right place when she first started to vounteer. Everything was so interesting and she loved how sometimes you had to be inventive to get things done. She has a fondness for all areas of veterinary medicine, but she especially loves her sweet older patients.

Her family consists of her husband, two daughters who are in elementary school.

When she’s not in the clinic, Dr. Debbie enjoys reading, crocheting, playing with her kiddos and visiting parks.
