DIMA worked as a veterinary assistant for many years in general practice as well as emergency/critical care.  She is now enjoying ophthalmology specialty practice where she feels like every day she learns something new. She has always loved animals and has numerous personal pets, including a chinchilla named Chu-Chu, a canary named Lemon, and two darling dogs named Lucy and Winnie (pictured left to right here). She enjoys painting, making flower wreaths, various other crafts, watching Twilight, and going out to eat with her friends.
