Daniel is from Corpus Christi, Texas, and has lived with pets ever since he can remember. He spent many hours on his father’s small ranch while growing up, where animal care was a daily part of life. It didn’t take long for Daniel to decide that he would one day work with pets professionally!
In 1999, Daniel brought his own puppy here to Forest Lane Animal Clinic for the dog’s initial round of vaccinations. He mentioned that he was about to start studying in veterinary technician school, which led to an interview with the clinic owner. The rest is history! Daniel has worked here ever since, and now serves as the Practice Manager. His favorite parts of the job are working with his talented team, meeting new puppies on a regular basis, and seeing clients’ satisfied smiles when they are reunited with their beloved animal companions.At home, Daniel lives with his young son and daughter, as well as several pets. The family shares their lives with a loveable Golden Retriever, Maverick; a Chihuahua named Neza who rules the roost; and five fish named after the starting lineup of the Dallas Mavericks: Dirk, Chandler, Deron, Wesley, and Zaza.
