Christina Hernandez

Christina Hernandez

Front Office Manager

Christina is our Front Office Manager here at My Pet’s. If you see someone running around full-speed ahead…that’s probably Christina! She ensures that all of our clients have a pleasant experience and that their pets are scheduled, booked and ready to go when needed. Christina came to us as a previous Surgical Technician, so transferring all of her knowledge from the human field to the animal field was a piece of cake. Her animal and surgical knowledge makes her a shoe end for her job here at My Pet’s and we are so lucky to have her on our team!
