Born & raised in the great city of Chicago, Elida was an animal lover from a young age. She would drive her non-animal loving parents crazy by bringing home injured & stray animals. And so in 1998, she was hired at an animal hospital as a veterinary technician & immediately loved it. Elida has enjoyed learning a lot about the many different positions & dynamics in the veterinary field throughout the different years, hospitals & cities.
She enjoys the love she feels taking care of the pets & clients which happens to include a medical & technical aspect to it as well.
Elida shares her home with her cool cats; the chosen shelter kitty Izabella, a sweet & pretty brown tabby. And Milo who was surrendered by a client who couldn’t care for him. He is a fun & handsome Bengal.
She enjoys many hobbies & can be regularly found exploring the many treasures & adventures of the city.
Elida is happy to be in Austin & to be part of the AUVC family!
