Originally from San Juan, Puerto Rico, Norimar joins Craig Road Animal Hospital’s externship program. She attained her Bachelor’s degree from The University of Puerto Rico, where she majored in veterinary technology. Norimar decided to apply after hearing about our program through a fellow student at Tuskegee University, where she is currently in her third year of veterinary school.

Growing up with a variety of pets, including rabbits, turtles, and birds, Norimar says she’s always been fond of animals. Her love for animals and science combined lead her to the decision of pursuing a career veterinary medicine.

Outside of work, Norimar enjoys painting, gardening and watching movies. She’s very active and enjoys spending time outdoors, hiking, and biking as well. During her time in Vegas, she’s already visited The Valley of Fire, Mt. Charleston, and The Hoover Dam.

During her externship at Craig Road Animal Hospital Norimar’s main goal is to gain experience following cases and going through treatment plans with clients.
