My name is Isabella Stavoli, I work as a veterinary assistant at Cherry Chase Pet Hospital. I am a recent graduate from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, with a BS in Animal Science and a concentration in pre-veterinary medicine. I have worked with a range of animals on campus from small companions to livestock and gained a variety of technical skills in; animal rehabilitation, production systems, management and processing, health, and nutrition.

I am primarily interested in companion animals, although another field of interest I would possibly pursue is wildlife research and rehabilitation. I have two Australian Shepherds myself that I adore and love to take with me on hikes and to the beach. Another hobby of mine outside of veterinary medicine includes traveling!
