Christina Cano, RVT, Practice Manager

Christina began her career in the veterinary field in 2007, where she worked at a family-owned small animal general practice near her hometown in Massachusetts. She was eager to learn more and attended an accredited college program where she earned her degree in Veterinary Technology while continuing to work part-time. She later went on to work at a well-known 24 hour emergency/specialty hospital where she spent time working shifts in emergency/critical care and orthopedic/soft tissue surgery. Christina’s areas of interest include dentistry, pain management, staff onboarding, training, and support, as well as helping to cultivate a healthy workplace environment. She is a huge advocate for practicing “fear free” and “feline friendly” medicine, and has training in both techniques. Christina looks forward to being part of the continued growth here at Twin Oaks Animal Hospital. When not at work Christina enjoys spending quality time with her family, cooking (especially Italian!), and traveling to new places.
