She is from the Caribbean island of Trinidad and Tobago but completed her study for both of her degrees in the United Kingdom at the university of Bristol where she was awarded with the prize for best patient care. Like most vets, from a young age Ana was always surrounded by all different types of animals and so her passion for animals started young. Growing up in a third world country where animal welfare and medical standards weren’t always top notch means that she is very passionate about alleviating animal suffering and utilising all the tools and knowledge Greencross has to offer to come to the best outcome for her patients and clients. Ana is a dog mum to her very energetic 12 year old kelpie x rottie called Rocky and in her spare time loves fishing, camping and being by the ocean. Her favourite areas of her work are surgery and emergency and critical care.
