Larissa is a local girl having grown up in Las Vegas Nevada.

Larissa always knew she was going to be a veterinarian. “My mom tried to get me interested in other things,” she said. “I tried architecture, golfing, and dancing but I always found my way back to veterinary medicine.”

Larissa received her bachelor’s from the University of Nevada, Reno, and is currently a 3rd year Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine student at St. Mathews University School of Veterinary Medicine in Grand Cayman. She is particularly interested internal medicine and she is looking forward to improving her surgical knowledge.

Larissa found out about the externship program after seeing an exchange from former externs on Instagram, but she has been aware of Craig Road Animal Hospital for some time. She is excited to get some hands-on experience during her externship.
In her spare time, Larissa likes to golf and she has two chocolate Labradors called Bonnie and Clyde.
