Jessie Maria

Certified Veterinary Assistant

RVT in training

Jessie(or Maria, or Jessie Maria!) grew up in San Diego, playing with as many dogs as she could find! When she got older she realized she wanted to do more for them; so she enrolled at Pima Medical Institute. We first met Jessie while she was doing an internship for school. She became certified as a Veterinary Assistant and started at RSDAH officially in February of 2013. She then continued her coursework to be come a technician and went on to graduate with an Associates Degree in Applied Science. Now she just needs to take her licensing exam to become an RVT. Jessie has been a wonderful addition to the RSDAH family. Her genuine positive energy and all around confidence already make her a great technician. Jessie is always one of the first people to give words of encouragement or compliments to others. Jessie is very close with her family; spending a lot of time outside of work with her nephew Abram and new baby niece Juliette. She loves exploring San Diego county; finding new hikes and adventures, especially near water. Jessie shares her home with 4 dogs; Peanut, Scotty, Nala & Tiny and 2 cats; Olivia & Opie.
