Dr. Kristina Perez

Dr. Kristina Perez spent most of her childhood in Virginia, but also lived for 5 years in the United Kingdom. She earned a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from Virginia Commonwealth University and her DVM from the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine.

After veterinary school, she completed a rotating internship in Small Animal Medicine and Surgery at BluePearl Veterinary Partners in Tampa, FL. She currently lives in Houston, TX and is completing an internship in Avian and Exotic Animal Medicine at Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists.

Dr. Perez’s interest in conservation medicine has led to her spending time in wildlife rehabilitation and zoological medicine as a volunteer and veterinary extern at facilities across the country. She regularly attends symposiums and conferences in exotic and zoological animal medicine.

Outside of work, her interests include creative writing, music events, video games, exploring new places, and spending time with her two dogs, cats, and hilarious cockatoo.
