Originally born in Mexico City, Mexico Uri was brought to the U.S. as a child when he was eight. He was living in Southern California for most of his life up until two years ago when I made the great move to beautiful Portland, Oregon. Ever since he can remember, he has always had a passion for animals. You can always find him watching endless hours of Animal Planet. Steve Irwin was one of his idols as a child and he still looks up to him.
Growing up, he always had the dream of working in some way with wildlife and about four years ago he began working as a veterinary assistant. That’s when he learned my true calling in life. He loves everything about the veterinary field. From taking care of sick and injured pets to educating people about how to take care of their new puppy. Currently finishing up his undergrad at PSU he hopes that one day he can go to veterinary school.
