Raya

Client Care Representative

My name is Raya and I started here at Willowbrook in July of 2023. I have 2 French bulldogs and 2 bunnies!! I always knew i had a love for animals but seeing what can be done behind the exam room doors is truly remarkable. I have always loved animals and their personalities, but my true passion is working with people. I love being able to bring peace to people in the front as they are typically stressed out on what is going on in the back.
