Animals have always been my passion, and their safety and comfort my goal. I chose emergency and urgent care because it is where I can make the most immediate change to our pets well being.

My name is Luis and this German Shepherd is Ezra, I rescued him from Tijuana when he was 6 weeks old. I always have a joke saying he knows more Spanish than I sometimes. I am a non registered veterinary technician and have been in this field for 4 years now, but it feels like I’ve been doing this my whole life. I love and take pride and joy when supporting sick animals back to health. We at Freddie’s Place will go far to get your fur baby’s the care they deserve ❤️


Hey, I’m Orsa, and this is Vivian, one of my many four legged kiddos. I have 6 dogs, 2 cats, and a desert tortoise!  My love for all animals is why I want to give back and help as many as I can while keeping the ball rolling at Freddie’s!


I had a childhood surrounded by animals, from an aviary of birds, to aquariums of fish, dogs, cats, rodents, reptiles, and a horse, so it was only natural for me follow a career working with animals. After attending UC Davis, majoring in Wildlife Biology, I worked briefly as an elephant trainer, before landing back in San Diego as a Zookeeper. The majority of my 15 year career was spent in the nursery, hand-rearing baby mammals. 

I transitioned to the veterinary field in 2019, as a technician, focusing on caring for some of my favorite animals, dogs and cats.  I recently completed additional training to become a registered veterinary technician, and will soon be attending human nursing school. 

As a pet parent myself, I am proud to join the Freddie’s Place team to provide cutting edge care at an affordable cost. With two wonderful senior dogs and a cheeky orange cat, I empathize with any pet parent seeking the best care for their fur babies, especially when immediate vet care is needed, and will work to provide the best care and experience possible for pets and their owners.

Hi, my name is Stephany. This is Ace, my german shepherd, and not pictured is Sydney, aka The Squid, my shih tzu. I’ve been in the vet industry for about 8 years now. I started by being an intern in high school, and 10 years later I’m still loving it. ER is definitely my favorite, being able to help the babies most in need is where I feel the most successful. Outside of work I love reading, traveling with the pups, and swimming.


Hey everyone, my name is Ileana and this is Waldomir James, otherwise know as Waldo. He is a covid rescue, mastiff mix.  We’ve both been in the field for quite some time now, myself being a veterinary assistant for about 6 years and him being an avid blood donor for the past 2 years. When not at work you can find us at the gym or the park playing with his favorite purple ball. With a passion for helping animals and educating clients on pet care, we are ready and excited to be a part of Freddie’s team.


Hello, my name is Paige and this is my cat boo boo. I first started working in the veterinary field in high school, starting off as a kennel assistant. Over 7 years later I am now a technician in the field and I love what I do. When I’m not at work, I enjoy getting outdoors.


Hi! I’m Raye, and this is my Mini Aussie, Kona! Out of all of our staff here at Freddie’s, I’m the newest to the veterinary field. I’ve always loved animals since I was a kid, and as I’ve gotten older I’ve realized that I don’t want to just love them, I want to make a difference in their lives too. Freddie’s has given me the chance to finally do that! I’m excited to work with this team and learn to help your precious pets (and my own) one at a time! When I’m not working, I love traveling, trying out new restaurants, and of course spending time with friends, and my soon-to-be family of four!


Hey everyone, my name is Miriam and this is Mila. I started working with animals when I got a job at Petco. I loved taking care all different types of animals. I decided I wanted to get more involved so I attended a vet assistant course. Now here I am 7 years later and loving it. At home I have a turtle and a dog who love to sunbathe together.

My name is Ashlee and this problem child is Hermes (like the Greek God, not the fashion brand). As you can probably tell, we argue a lot, but he definitely runs the house; my husband Cam and I are his under appreciated staff.
I’ve been in the veterinary field since 2007 in multiple positions, starting out in reception, branching into boarding attendant and reception, and finally moving to veterinary assistant. My goal is to become a Registered Veterinary Technician.
My passion is the well being of animals, and I am fascinated by the human animal bond, whether the bond is with the pet parent, or the medical caretaker. There’s really something magical about it.  Outside of work I love to read, and to be outside.


Hi, I’m Tanya. Ever since I was a little kid I knew that I wanted to work in animal care. I am proud to work here at Freddie’s where your little one’s care comes first!


Hello! I’ve been in the veterinary industry for 10+ years, starting as a kennel assistant and working my way to being a veterinary nurse. I graduated from San Diego State University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in Biology-Zoology, and also a Minor in Environmental Studies. While going through the competitive application process for veterinary school, I felt that the hands-on connection to veterinary medicine was, for me, the most rewarding as a technician. Switching gears in 2019, I passed the VTNE and officially became a Registered Veterinary Technician. I enjoy the rush of assisting with surgeries, routine or emergency; and on the calmer side of things, I enjoy providing families with the education and materials to give their fur babies the best possible care. I’m very passionate about dental/oral health and take pride in my dental extraction skills. I have a soft spot for “spicier” patients and I’m comfortable with doing whatever I can to ease their stress in a hospital setting. I’m grateful to be a part of the Freddie’s Place team!

In my (rare) down time, I enjoy being outdoors, exploring new food spots, and attending music festivals or concerts. If I decide on a “lazy” day, I’ll be cuddling up with my two fur babies — Sir Oliver Garfield Chesterton III and Panda Roo Moo Cow!


Hello my name is Yvette and I have been a tech for about 8 years. I have worked in general practice hospitals but my true passion is in emergency medicine. I enjoy the fast pace work and nursing animals back to health. When I’m not at work I am a full-time mom to my two little boys, two dogs, two sulcata tortoises and my cat.


Hey, my name’s Izzy, and that’s my furbaby, Kio! I have been in the field for 3 years now and absolutely love learning about everything related to animal health care. I’m going to school to become a registered veterinary technician. My passion is urgent/emergency and surgeries because there is so much to learn within those cases. Freddie’s Place has such a fun, welcoming energy and I am excited to grow and further my career here!


Hi! I’m Erin and this is the life of the party, Kuzco! I have been in the veterinary field for about 4 years now and there’s nothing more that I love doing than making sure every pet I encounter with gets a copious amount of love and care from me! I love going to the beach, trying new hobbies, and surrounding myself with the people I love the most.


Hi, my name is Kilistina. I am a born and raised Oceanside, Ca native. For as long as I can remember, not realizing it, I’ve been caring and nurturing animals back to health, from birds falling out of their nests to stray cats roaming the block. I was the the kid that brought everything home “can we keep it?” It wasn’t until I was fresh out of high school, I was hired as kennel at Mission Animal Bird Hospital and from there I just knew that I wanted to do more. I went to college, graduated with AAS degree in Veterinary Technology. Fast forward 12 years I now have the joy of working EMERGENCY CRITICAL CARE and loving it. I have 3 fur babies of my own, Alvin my everything dog still kicking at 19, I also have his feline brothers, Theodore and Pepe, and the dynamic duo Slimshady. When I’m not working, which is rare, you can find me at concerts, a local hole in the wall restaurant and traveling.
