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. Gloria earned her Reiki Master certification from the Animal Reiki Alliance and is available for reiki appointments at the clinic. 
During her time off work, Gloria is a Licensed Zumba fitness instructor, and spends time at the gym, teaching dance workout routines. She recently added an adorable puppy, Valentine, to 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.










Kate joined the BVC team in 2020. She has worked in the veterinary field for several years and enjoys helping pets stay happy and healthy. 

Kate splits her time between BVC and a Masters program in Anthrozoology. She lives with two dogs of her own, and often goes on long walks with them while listenining to audiobooks. She also enjoys board games and knitting.
