Dr. Aparicio was born in Tampa, Florida. She attained her undergraduate degree from the University of Florida and her veterinary degree from Mississippi State University. Although she is a Florida native, she has lived in New Jersey, Virginia, Mississippi, and most recently Fayetteville, Arkansas. She practiced in Fayetteville at a small animal hospital for a year and a half before moving back home to Tampa in 2015. She enjoys running, hiking, skiing, travel, and hanging out with her husband, their pack of Labrador retrievers, Felicity, Bella, Cookie, and Ginger, and black cat, Monty. While she and her family will miss the mountain life, they’re happy to trade it for the beach life once again! Dr. Aparicio is a great listener, has a gentle touch, and looks forward to meeting you and taking care of your furry loved ones.
