Her life revolves primarily around family, close friends, and her animals. Working with Dr. Keith as a veterinary assistant has given Angelina a hands on experience in the industry and her favorite time to learn new information is during dentals for cats and dogs. She says she is too short to see much of what is done with the horses but loves getting the experience and knowledge of how to treat large animals!

After studying graphic design, Mirana decided to make a career change and started working instead with animals. Since then, she has enjoyed working primarily with dogs and cats for over 17 years. She has 3 Cavalier King Charles and while they may be small in size they are large in heart and personality. When the weather is agreeable, she spends time hiking with her dogs and exploring the outdoors. On less than stellar days, she is usually found with a book and a lap full of comfort spaniels. She likes to focus on gardening every spring to which her dogs gladly lend a paw by digging holes for planting and of course offering taste tests once the harvest is ready.
