Oscar has loved animals since he was a child. While growing up in the rainforest of Ecuador, he cared for any lost or wounded animal he found, then set them free when they were well again. As a young adult, he enjoyed working with farm animals, and wanted to help farmers produce in a more efficient way. This motivated him to attend veterinary school at the University of Cuenca, and not long after graduating, Oscar moved to the United States.

In 1999, he found a job at a veterinary hospital and has worked with companion animals ever since. He loves interacting with pet owners and educating them about their pets’ health and behavior. In 2014, Oscar became a Licensed Veterinary Technician and 4 years later, became a Registered Veterinary Technician. Today, he loves being at Stevenson Ranch and working with the awesome people here. Outside of work, he enjoys spending time with his wife and their 2 children (and their 2 dogs and 2 cats), hiking, playing soccer, and gardening.
