With DAP since 2018
My name is Victoria, and I’m one of the newest team members here at Dogs At Play. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had a special love for and connection with animals, and I’m so excited to meet all of you and spend time caring for your adorable pups! Originally from the Detroit area in Michigan, I moved down to Wilmington in August of 2015 to start college-I’m currently a junior at UNCW studying marine biology on the pre veterinary track. Through UNCW, I’m a member of the Pre-Veterinary Medical Association, the Marine Mammal Stranding Program, Alpha Xi Delta sorority, and I am also a Study Abroad Ambassador for Australia, as I studied abroad in Townsville, North Queensland from February-June, 2017! In the bit of free time I have, I love going to the beach, going to the gym, practicing yoga, singing, scuba diving, and playing with my roommate’s little black kitty, Charlie, who I’ve adopted as my own, too.
At home in Michigan, I left behind my little baby Luca, an 8-year-old Shih-Tzu/Maltese/Bichon mix, who I hope to bring down to live with me soon! As a career path, I hope to go onto veterinary school within the next few years and begin my work as a marine animal veterinarian, specializing in the rescue and rehabilitation of marine mammals and sea turtles. I absolutely love living in this cozy little beach town, and hopefully I can stick around here for a few more years!
