Having grown up in Calhoun, LA, Dr. Ochoa's childhood dream of becoming a veterinarian never wavered. Her love for animals led her to pursue a career in veterinary medicine, and she continues to thrive in her profession.

Alongside her dedication to her work, she also cherishes her personal life. Dr. Ochoa is happily married to Greg, and together, they share their home with Two dogs: "Ruby" a Schnoodle, and "Bug" a Japanese Chin. One cat named "OJ" and a leopard tortoise named "Monkey".

In her spare time, Dr. Ochoa enjoys traveling the world with her husband and exploring new places and experiences. She also has a passion for baking and loves taking Ruby on fun shopping excursions.

When not attending to her veterinary duties or exploring new places with her husband, Dr. Ochoa indulges in her artistic talent for making handmade quilts. Her creations are a testament to her creativity and attention to detail, adding yet another dimension to her already impressive array of achievements and interests.

Another aspect of Dr. Ochoa's compassionate nature is her deep interest in helping lost pets find their owners. She actively volunteers with local animal shelters and rescue organizations, dedicating her time and expertise to reunite lost pets with their families. Dr. Ochoa's commitment to the well-being of animals goes beyond her veterinary practice, as she strives to make a positive impact on the lives of animals.


Dr. Ochoa's educational journey began at Louisiana Tech, where she obtained a Bachelor's degree in animal science in 2011. Her passion for veterinary medicine led her to pursue further education at St. George's University in Grenada, West Indies.

With a rich academic background in veterinary studies, she had the privilege of being mentored by renowned veterinarians worldwide. Her time at LSU exposed her to valuable clinical routines, where she excelled remarkably.
