Clara was always struck by the way that animals cannot always speak up for themselves, even though they’re experts at communicating with their human family members. She wanted to be able to help bridge that gap—for her, helping to advocate for pets and their healthcare is a dream come true. Clara gets to better the lives of animals every day as a member of Agape Animal Clinic’s front-desk team!
Clara is originally from Deming, New Mexico and used to work as a Medical Assistant in a pediatric office. She enjoyed the proximity to the medical world, but she knew that it wasn’t her true calling. When she heard about a veterinary receptionist position through her cousin (a Veterinary Technician herself), Clara jumped at the chance to get her foot in the door of the veterinary world. She hasn’t looked back since!
Clara has been a part of the Agape Animal Clinic family since late summer of 2019. Around the clinic, she loves to follow up with patients and their loving owners over the phone after their procedures. She’s also fond of observing in the surgical ward, and passing along all the information she learns to the pet owners of the area.
At home, Clara has two dogs: Haides, a Chihuahua mix, as well as her sister’s dog, a Toy Yorkie puppy who goes by Chapo Guzman.
