She is currently attending the Animal Health Program at San Diego Mesa College in order to achieve her license as a Veterinary Technician. She has lived in San Diego her entire life, and has always had a passion for animals. Her house full of pets include her two dogs Qtip and Chica, her two cats Goku and Pico, her Betta named Sushi, and her scorpion General Paco.
