  • Hector
    Hector  
    Practice Manager

    Hello, my name is Hector, and I have been a resident of San Pedro for three years. I am currently working as a veterinary technician assistant at this hospital since November 2021. With over 13 years of experience in various practices, including shelter, low-cost, general practice, ER, and Specialty, I joined this hospital to offer my services to the community and its furry friends and family. I am proud to be part of a team that is committed to re-establishing a healthy relationship with the community and its furry family members. We understand the challenges that this practice has had with prior ownership, and we strive every day to provide high-quality care, service, and compassion to those who have entrusted us with the care of their animal companions during their time of need. When I am not at the hospital, I enjoy exploring local trails, spending time downtown, or working out at the local boxing gym. Our goal is to work collaboratively with our staff and new owners to better serve the community and all of its pets. We are committed to ensuring that our clients receive the best possible care and service, and we welcome any feedback or suggestions that could help us improve our practice.

  • maryv
    Maryv  
    Patient Care Team - Technician Assistant

    Hi there, my name is Mary! I am 27 years old with two dogs and a cat who aided in my love for animal medicine! I am passionate about all animal care but have only worked with cats and dogs thus far. I have been with the Ace Fam for one year and have been in the veterinary field for 5 years now. I am very thankful to have developed many skills in the time that I have been at Ace Animal Hospital. I feel more prepared than ever to sit for my state exam and become an RVT. I aspire to branch out to different fields of veterinary medicine i.e., exotics (birds and reptiles), large animal medicine (equine and ruminants) and maybe even wildlife! I look forward to developing my skills and learning new things every day while at Ace before I work with different species. 

    With a menagerie of pets at home, Mary's love for animals led her to a career in veterinary medicine. For the past 5 years, she has honed her skills while working with cats and dogs at Ace Animal Hospital. Now, after a year with the Ace team, Mary feels prepared to become a registered veterinary technician. She looks forward to expanding her expertise by working with exotic species, large animals, and wildlife. Though her current focus is small animals, Mary's passion lies in lifelong learning - she strives to develop new skills and help as many creatures as possible, big or small.
