Setsuko is originally from Tokyo, Japan. She came to the United States as an exchange student when she was 16 years old. Setsuko lived with a family in Virginia for 3 years and finished high school there.
After graduation, Setsuko went back to Japan and attended Dokkyo University, where she majored in German.
Setsuko is a member of our inpatient team. She formerly worked at Symantec and Sandisk as a bilingual tech support person. Setsuko got into veterinary medicine when she met a wonderful veterinarian who truly inspired her.
She decided she wanted to become a tech so she could be a voice for the animals. She feels most happy when she can provide comfort for our hospitalized pets.
Setsuko has 2 dogs, Chelsea and Isaac Newton and 3 cats, Ginger, King Louie and Harry Potter. In her spare time, she enjoys shopping, eating and spending time with her pets.
