Vanesa has been with MAEVC since 2015. She loves the wide range of species she works with and relates to her clients love for their pets. She is a mother of 4 humans, and they share their home with 2 dogs (Pork Chop and Vinny), 2 Crested Geckos ( Rossie and Naruto), and a Betta fish named Stan Lee.
Deneise graduated from Mount St. Mary's University with a B.S. in Health Sciences and minor in Psychology.
She grew up in the Philippines with her grandparents until she was 13 years old. She helped her grandparents look after their farm and properties. Deneise has always enjoyed taking care of animals like their pigs, chickens, dogs and karabaos (swamp-type water buffalo).
Deneise was on the road of pursuing a degree in Nursing but had a shift of interest and decided to work with animals. Prior to joining the MAEVC team, Deneise was a photographer and a dogwalker. She currently has five guinea pigs and four hamsters - if she had a bigger space, without a doubt she would take in more pigs. Other than taking pictures of pigs and hamster during play time, Deneise also likes to play videogames, to try all sorts of food and to travel places near and far.
Cat recently came to MAEVC from a canine/feline practice, but her passion has always been to work with exotics. She graduated from West Virginia University with a B.S. in Wildlife and Fisheries resources and minored in Conservation Ecology. She is also finishing her Veterinary Technician degree through Penn Foster. She has many animal babies including two Iguanas, two Ball Pythons, a Blue-Tongued Skink, several frogs, a Hedgehog and a Pigeon. When she is not taking photos of her animals she enjoys traveling with her husband and spending time with her family at their cabin in West Virginia.
