  • Maressa

    I am a native Floridian, born and raised in Sunny South Florida! I grew up with two older sisters and a dog named Sugar, who was my best friend and the reason I wanted to work with animals. Ever since I was little it has been my passion to help animals in any way possible and I hope to continue to grow and learn with the Dale Mabry Animal Hospital. I moved to Tallahassee in 2011 where I attended Florida State University. A few years later, I graduated with a Bachelor's in Psychology and Hospitality Management and worked full-time in retail but realized it was time to make my dream a reality! After moving to Tampa in the summer of 2016 with my boyfriend Tyler, I enrolled in the Animal Behavior College to earn a certification as a Veterinary Assistant and I continue to volunteer at the Pet Resource Center since I can't take all the doggies home! I am excited to be a part of the DMAH team and continue to expand my knowledge and experience with animals, big and small alike!
