Irene

Tech Assistant

Irene is a Yuma native who has always loved animals. She knew from a very young age that she wanted to work with them for a living.  Working at a veterinary clinic in particular was her dream job.  In 2006 she followed that dream to Desert Veterinary Clinic, where she stayed for 8 1/2 years.  During her time there she was grateful to learn a variety of skills and eventually oversaw all the other veterinary assistants.  Eventually she moved to the Humane Society of Yuma, where she initially worked in the spay/neuter clinic.  After a while she moved to the kennel area where she became the Animal Medical Technician and then the Shelter Manager.  Though she was still working with animals, Irene missed working in a full service veterinary clinic so she began looking to rejoin one in 2017.  In January of 2018 she was added to our team as a tech assistant, and is very happy to be here.

Irene has three cats, Shenanigan, Conan and Vox, and one dog, Hadouken (pictured).  She is an advocate for and participant in TNR (trap-neuter-release of Yuma’s stray cats) and has fostered for the Humane Society for over 10 years.

 

 

 

 

 

Everyone was kind and caring, not just with Katie and me, but with other clients. Upon our third visit, I was amazed how many different people greeted us by name.
