Born and raised in the Philippines, this is where CJ completed a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies. Moving first to Singapore, where he worked as an office administrator at a private school, CJ and his wife moved to Canada in 2020. An orthodontic clinic in Victoria first benefitted from CJ’s administrative skills before he joined the Elk Lake Veterinary Hospital team in 2023.
As ELVH’s administrative coordinator, CJ is always interested in meeting different animals and their humans, and learning about their stories and medical cases. He strives to make sure that our veterinary team, particularly our Specialty Surgery department, has what they need to care for their patients efficiently and well. As this is his first role in the veterinary industry, CJ is embracing the opportunity to learn as much as he can about the field!
When he is not helping the team here at ELVH, CJ brings his passion for taking good care of animals to his fur-family at home – his lovely young Golden Retriever Charlie and hamster duo Rosie and Marie. CJ loves spending time with his wife and their new baby (with Charlie adding his canine company!), playing video games, and enjoying good music.
