Growing up, Desirae always had an interest in the medical field and animals. The moment she learned she could combine the two, she leaped at the opportunity to be in the veterinary field. Right out of high school, Desirae started as a groomer before working in a general practice setting for two years while she completed her LVT at the Veterinary Technicians Institute in Houston, Texas. For the last 13 years, she has worked in specialty care which included dentistry and oral surgery – but most recently Avian and Exotics.
Outside of the clinic, Desirae enjoys trying new foods and cooking for her family – especially around the holidays. She enjoys quality time attending local music venues and beer gardens with her husband, their six-year-old daughter, and their two black Domestic Medium Hair cats named Yukiko and Slowy.
Desirae leads a team that treats minor injuries and illnesses in cats and dogs at UrgentVet – Katy.
