Maya joined the Endless Mountains Veterinary Center at our Owego location in December 2018. She is concerned about providing our clients and patients with as much compassion as she can. Maya wants to contribute to an environment that can make our patients feel both safe and comfortable. Personally she is passionate about wildlife and ecology and strives to contribute as much as she can to conservation efforts. Maya has a bachelor's of Science in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation, and obtained her degree from the University of Florida. She is currently taking classes to become certified as an LVT. Her professional and personal interests lies in merging her wildlife experience with veterinary care. Eventually she wants to work at a zoo or rehabilitation facility as a wild life veterinary technician. Maya lives on 55 acres of farmland with her boyfriend, Grant. They have roughly 35 animals including alpacas, sheep, goats, chickens, pheasants, three dogs and a cat. They use their German Shorthair Pointers to pheasant hunt. Their malamute mix works hard at being a lap dog. Maya often volunteers at Tunison Lab of Aquatic Sciences as a biologist. She assists with DNA analysis as well as field work conducting research.
