Cristina has loved animals all her life and has a great passion for dogs and horses. She has always owned dogs and her first job was as a groomer back in her hometown in Brazil. She has also worked with Equitherapy providing quality equine-assisted activities for children and adults with disabilities.
She graduated in International Business and moved to Florida in 2007 and worked as a manager for 4 years until she decided it was time to go back to working with what she loved: animals. She joined Pet Coral team right when they open in 2011 and has since then grown within the company and is now the manager.
She is certified in Veterinary Assistant with Penn Foster online school.
Cristina currently has a female fawn boxer named Emma which goes to work with her almost every day and loves to play in the pool and with the other dogs in daycare. Recently, Jack, a 1 year-old Boston Terrier has joined the family when he was no longer wanted by his family and Cristina took him in. Jack follows Emma everywhere she goes and became a part of the family.
Cristina also volunteers with the Florida Boxer Rescue fostering dogs and participating in local events.
