Veterinary Technician

Julia Velazquez

Julia came to join the Oak Knoll family in the summer of 2021.  She graduated from Sauk Valley Community College with an Associates in Arts and Radiologic Technologies.  Her strong desire to help animals led her to enter the veterinary field and she enjoys doing dentals and x-rays the most.  She says that she enjoys the satisfaction she gets at the end of the day knowing that she she gave her all to help her patients and she wishes more owners knew about the benefits of nutrition and her long term goal is to obtain her license and become a CVT (Certified Veterinary Technician).  Her biggest personal achievement was accomplishing a childhood dream of adopting.

Off the clock, Julia spends time with her two children, Theron and Maya.  They have 3 dogs (Roxy, Toffee and Mocha), 2 cats (Marigold and Cami), and 2 guinea pigs (Caramel and Leona).  Julia enjoys hiking, reading, listening to music, visiting museums and practicing meditation and yoga.
