Veronica Cruz – Practice Manager
Whether you are new to Eco Deco Pet Hospital or have known us for some time now our practice manager may be very familiar to you. Veronica Cruz is a pioneer to the Eco Deco Pet Hospital brand. She assumes the roles of practice manager, patient client coordinator, and floating technician, among many other jobs.
Veronica initially found her passion for the animal care field after stumbling upon a position at Banfield Pet Hospital as a Pet Counselor and quickly moved up the cooperate ladder, eventually landing the title as Practice Manager. It was during her time with Banfield Pet Hospital that she met the wonderful Dr. Valeriy Andreyev. Veronica became comfortable with Dr. Andreyev and valued his medical practice and business ethics. It was no wonder when Dr. Andreyev made the decision to open his very first practice there would be no better fit than Veronica Cruz as his right hand.
When not at the office managing the hospital’s team and flow, Veronica is seeking her Associates in Business Management at Broward College. She has already completed her 48 hours of continuing education credits with Patterson Veterinary Management University, in the hopes of becoming a Certified Veterinary Practice Manager.
One of Veronica’s goals is to expand the Eco Deco Pet Hospital brand into a chain of hospitals to better serve the community and their pet needs. In addition, she plans on becoming a Veterinarian Consultant who develops the veterinary business, assisting practice owners, and helping them remain successful by building on the team’s skills.
While it may be true that most of her time is dedicated to serving our client’s and patient’s needs, Veronica enjoys spending her time outside the hospital tanning and soaking up the sun at the beach as well as getting lost in a great book. Her household is ran by her loving and affectionate 1 year old Maltese named Reef.
