Alma Sanchez Veterinary Technician Assistant

Alma has been working for the Broadway Animal Hospital support staff for 4 years. She chose this career for a couple of reasons. One, her father, Ignacio Sanchez, was a DVM in Mexico where she grew up, and he influenced her decision to work in this field. Later, Alma found a light in her path to stay in the vet field and learned  to love and care for furry companions. Alma had a  companion friend, "Ruby", a long coated Chihuahua, who was  and will always be the joy of her life.  Alma want to learn more about how to serve the veterinary  community. She is very happy to be a member of the Broadway Animal Hospital team and will always thank Dr. Kasmersky  for letting her be part of this beautiful family.  In her spare time, Alma loves to spend time with her mother and sister, listen to music, and watch action films at the theater.
