DVM, Diplomate ACVD, Board Certified Veterinary Dermatologist
Dr. Yamazaki obtained her bachelor's degree from UC San Diego in 2007. Reconsidering her previous career plan, she began working in a multi-specialty veterinary hospital as a receptionist, eventually becoming a technician in their dermatology department. She worked in this position for 3 years, and found herself drawn to the potential of becoming a veterinary dermatologist herself.
Dr. Yamazaki graduated in 2014 from the Atlantic Veterinary College at the University of Prince Edward Island (Canada). She moved back to San Diego and completed a rotating internship at VCA Emergency Animal Hospital and Referral Center, followed by a dermatology specialty internship at Veterinary Specialty Hospital, and then eagerly accepted a residency position with Animal Dermatology Clinic in 2016.
Outside of the clinic Dr. Yamazaki enjoys yoga, reading food blogs, volunteering as an active member of the Junior League of San Diego, and exploring farmer's markets with her husband and two chihuahuas.
