Dr. Contreras attended University of California, Santa Cruz and UC Riverside for her B.S. degree in biology. She then attended UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, where she obtained her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2016. During her time at UC Davis, she was a leader in various clubs whose goals were in line with her passions and was also one of the lead veterinary students who created the nation's first One Health Center. After graduating, she returned home to the Riverside area and began working for Banfield that same year. Dr. Contreras is fluent in Spanish and enjoys practicing the language as much as possible. Her passions outside of the veterinary field include spending time with her friends and family, training her cat, and following her favorite baseball team.

Dr. Thoresen was born and raised on the Sunshine Coast in Australia and earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 2018 at Murdoch University in Perth, Western Australia. She is excited to begin her veterinary career with the Banfield team in sunny California and can't wait to start exploring the area. She loves working with all animals, but has a soft spot for dogs and especially puppies! Outside of work, Dr. Thoresen enjoys travel, unwinding on the beach and hiking in the mountains. She has an adorable Maltese dog named Maisie back in Australia who she misses like crazy.
