Dr. Emanoel DeJesus grew up in Maryland and always had a passion for animals. In college, volunteering at an animal shelter made him realize he wanted to become a veterinarian. He attended Michigan State University for veterinary school after taking a couple years after college to confirm his career path.

Dr. DeJesus appreciates how unpredictable being a veterinarian is and that he gets to help animals who cannot communicate what is wrong. He had a beagle growing up and now owns three dogs and five ball pythons with his girlfriend. He chose to work in Las Vegas because he fell in love with the mountains during his externship, and his brother and girlfriend already lived there.

In his spare time, Dr. DeJesus enjoys playing sports like soccer and volleyball. He also likes hiking, walking his dogs, reading, and playing video games.
