Yusmery was born in Los Angeles and raised in North Hollywood. Her admiration for animals started at a young age as she was surrounded by cats and birds that surprisingly got along very well.
Yusmery started to pursue her RVT licence when she realized her local pierce college offered animal science classes. She enrolled and started volunteering at multiple hospitals to gain experience. She eventually found Banfield, where she worked with Dr. Nardi for 4 years.
She continued her passion at emergency hospitals and gained experience working with exotics. In 2018, she passed both her state board and national exam. Now, 4 years later she is back working with Dr. Nardi at Dog and Cat Hospital Calabasas.
During her free time, Yusmery enjoys hanging out with her 10 fur babies and cooking new recipes.
