Gen was born in Canada but moved here at an early age and graduated from Apple Valley High School. She then attended Cal Poly Pomona and although not sure what she wanted to do at first, her love for animals quickly took over and guided her. She started working in the veterinary field in 2003 and graduated from Cal Poly Pomona in 2006 with her Bachelors in Animal Health Science.
Gen was the first person hired by Dr. Deb when she purchased Animal Care Hospital and her employment at ACH pushed her to seek out more education. She became a Registered Veterinary Technician in 2008 and in 2009 she began her journey to vet school by going through the difficult application process. She was accepted to multiple schools but chose Western University of Health Sciences to stay close to home.
Her medical interests include small animal and exotics general practice.
In her free time she enjoys relaxing with her husband and their menagerie, which includes two dogs, two cats, three geckos and one chameleon. She also enjoys horseback riding, Disney movies and is an avid reader.
