San Francisco SPCA Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jena Valdez with cat

Jena Valdez, DVM Chief Medical Officer
Colorado State University

As Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Jena Valdez oversees our most innovative and impactful veterinary care programs, which are designed to offer quality, compassionate care to shelter animals and affordable, non-judgmental veterinary care to clients and their pets.

In addition to overseeing veterinary services at the SF SPCA, Dr. Valdez pioneered the launch of the Community Veterinary Clinic, a first-of-its-kind, preventative care center in San Francisco’s Excelsior district (a longstanding veterinary-resource desert). She is also working to export the scalable Community Clinic model to under-resourced communities throughout California.

A graduate of Colorado State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, Dr. Valdez has extensive experience in private practice, sheltering, and high-quality, high-volume spay and neuter services. She’s a nationally recognized advocate for increasing access to veterinary care and increasing diversity within the fields of veterinary medicine and animal welfare.

Dr. Valdez shares her San Francisco home with her husband, their ball-obsessed Dachshund mix, and a regal brown tabby.

Ohio State University

Upon graduating from college, I knew I wanted to work with animals, but I wasn’t sure in what capacity, because I also wanted to start a family. I found work in a small animal hospital with women who were both mothers and vets. I quickly saw that becoming a veterinarian would allow me to have a rewarding career and be a mother at the same time. Today, I am both, and I love it!

San Francisco SPCA Dr. Wesley Leung

It’s important to me to be of service to my community and the people around me. I believe in supporting pet parents with the knowledge they need to care for their pets and to provide a wide spectrum of care to every patient, no matter their socio-economic status.

University of Wisconsin–Madison

What I enjoy most about being a veterinarian is being able to interact daily with so many different animal patients. My days are never the same. In addition, I love working at a hospital where the goal is to support families and their pets, no matter their socioeconomic status, and to provide access to care for all animals in the San Francisco area.

Even though I’ve been practicing veterinary medicine since 1993, I still enjoy being with, observing, and working with animals and wildlife. I love drawing on my own personal and work experiences to connect with our clients and have a positive impact on people and their pets.

Rebecca Velazquez, DVM Hospital
Oregon State University

As a child, I rescued stray kittens, injured squirrels, and skunks; and I always took note when our own pets were sick. Throughout my life, my father repeatedly told me I should pursue veterinary medicine. Finally, after graduating from college, I listened to him, and I have never looked back.

San Francisco SPCA Veterinarian Dr. Anna Walker

Anna Walker, DVM Hospital
Mississippi State University

It wasn’t until I rescued my first dog in college that I thought about becoming a veterinarian. He was a sick puppy and was frequently in and out of the vet hospital near my house. I feel in love with him instantly and was drawn to the camaraderie of the veterinary field. Dogs make the world a better place and I’m beyond grateful to get to meet and help so many new ones each day!

San Francisco SPCA Dr. Marissa Woodall-Johnson

Marissa Woodall-Johnson, DVM Hospital, Shelter Medicine
& Community Medicine

University of California, Davis

I love working with animals on a daily basis, and I enjoy teaching their people how to keep them healthy and prevent future medical problems. I love the detective work of solving a mystery and learning new surgeries and techniques to help clients who might not be able to afford specialty-level care. I’m also excited to support healthy communities by teaching a new generation of veterinarians to provide compassionate care for all animals.

San Francisco SPCA Dr. Nicolette Zarday

Nicolette Zarday, DVM Hospital
University of California, Davis

During college, I worked at an animal rescue center in a Guatemalan jungle. I was so inspired by the veterinarians who took care of rescued wildlife there, I decided to become a veterinarian.

Maggie Belshaw, DVM Shelter Medicine
Kansas State University

I grew up in San Francisco, and my family adopted our first pet from the SF SPCA when I was five years old. I attended SF SPCA summer camp as a child and later volunteered at our shelter when I was in high school. When the opportunity presented itself to return as a veterinarian, I jumped at the opportunity.

Echo Cartagena, DVM Shelter Medicine

I enjoy working where I’m most needed and caring for animals with the greatest potential for recovery. As difficult as it is to see animals in pain, I’m grateful for the opportunity to help animals who are malnourished and neglected or those with burns, wounds, infections, or fractures. That said, I can’t resist a quick kitten visit when I need a pick-me-up! 

San Francisco SPCA Dr. Emily Young with dog

Emily Young, VMD Shelter Medicine
University of Pennsylvania

I made the decision to become a veterinarian when I was 12 years old. My mother brought a puppy home as a surprise, and we discovered it was covered in ticks. My best friend and I spent a whole day picking them off one by one. We pinky swore we would become veterinarians to help cats and dogs, and we both lived up to that promise!
