Our Nurses



Gloria  — Technician Supervisor

Gloria joined the BVC team in 2018. She started working in the veterinary field in 2008, and loved it since day one. She finds being able to utilize her experience and skills to make a difference in the lives and health of pets very fulfilling. She strives to provide the best possible care for pets every day, and is excited to bring her talents to BVC.
During her time off work, Gloria is a Licensed Zumba fitness instructor, and spends time at the gym, teaching dance workout routines. She also spends a lot of her free time petsitting as she does not currently have any pets of her own; petsitting allows her to envelop those pets into her family. Gloria loves dancing, trying new varieties of foods and watching Redskins games. 








Manny joined the BVC team in 2018. He started working in the veterinary field as a kennel assistant, and has continued to grow and expand in the field. 

He believes that there are things we can learn and cherish from our furry friends, like their loyalty, unconditional love, and authentic behavior. One of the things he really enjoys about his job is having the opportunity to help animals without expecting anything in return.

Manny enjoys taking his dogs (or, as he prefers to refer to them, his daughters) hiking or for late night walks in DC.
