Karen, originally from Panama, moved with her parents and her sister to Connecticut in 1995. She began working in customer service and retail, but always had a passion for animals. She began working in her first veterinary hospital in September of 2001 and fell in love with the small animal practice world. She strives to give 100% every day to honor the very special bond between a pet and their owner.

    She moved to Houston in 2013 and is loving the southern way of life!

    In her spare time she enjoys learning more about computer software, listening to music, playing volleyball, and snowboarding.

    Karen is seen here with a very cute Rive Village Animal Hospital patient named "Cassius."
