Abril was born in Phoenix, AZ and later moved to Mexico where she and her family had the opportunity to interact with numerous farm animals. Her passion for animals began with her favorite childhood book, The Children’s Encyclopedia of Animals. Owing to her interest in large cats, namely, tigers and jaguars, she knew she wanted to work in exotic animal medicine. Abril joined the AZEAH family in 2021. She is currently working on her Bachelor of Veterinary Science degree at the University of Arizona. In addition to working towards her degree, Abril is also pursuing her Certification in Zoo and Aquarium Conservation. In her free time, Abril enjoys drawing, painting and playing with her spoiled ferrets, Aiko & Gojo. Abril also enjoys cooking, baking, watching anime or anything else that catches her eye.
