Our Staff

Noemi, Office Manager

You can call me Nomi! I've been working in the veterinary field since graduating from high school. I started as a kennel technician and worked my way up over the years. I have tried to branch out into other fields, but I always end up coming back to veterinary care.  I've lived in San Antonio all my life, and I've had pets just as long. At home I have 2 ball pythons, Haba and Balthazar, a Pit Bull mix, Andromeda, a kitty, Marie, and a tortoise, Donnie. I love getting to interact with pets and their people, and watching puppies and kittens grow up has to be my favorite part of the job. I am a nerd at heart and I am always looking for more learning opportunities. I graduated with a Bachelor's of Science in Biology from UTSA and take as many continuing education courses as I can squeeze into my schedule.

I have been working as a Kennel Caretaker for about 8 years now. I really enjoy working with pets of all species. My favorite part of the work is being involved in the treatment of pets that are here in the hospital. When I have the opportunity, I love to spend time with my family and my pets. At home, I have six pets; three dogs and 3 birds.

Glorieliz, Veterinary Technician Intern

I started at Heritage Veterinary Medical Center about a year ago as a volunteer. Since then, I've worked my way up to assistant and I am currently enrolled in the Veterinary Technician Program at Palo Alto College. Working as a Veterinary Assistant has given me the opportunity to learn so many new and interesting things. That is my favorite part of the work we do, learning about different types of pets and the care we provide for them. At home, I love to spend time with my family. When I'm not working or with my family, you'll find me studying for school or teaching my two dogs, Choco & Blue, new tricks.

Education: Currently studying at Palo Alto Community College
