Dr. Fumiko Miyamoto, D.V.M. First Year AssociateDr. Miyamoto was born and raised in Japan and moved to the US when she was 15 to pursue her dream of becoming a veterinarian. Her parents and family stayed in Japan while she attended boarding school in Danville, California. After her college counselor told her that it would be extremely difficult to get into veterinary school, she switched paths and majored in Digital Graphics. However, during undergrad, she couldn't stop thinking about being around animals so she attended Western Career College and became a Registered Veterinary Technician in 2004. She started to work as a weekend technician for a high volume emergency clinic in San Leandro, California. After completing undergrad, she took night classes to finish up pre-requisite classes so she could attend veterinary school. She eventually made her dream come true and received her degree from Ross University. Her professional interests include internal medicine, emergency and critical care medicine and hemodialysis.
Although she is a northern Cali-girl at heart, she discovered that she enjoys living in tropical weather and being close to the beach which Florida offers. The beach is where she goes to relax and rejuvenate! She currently has three cute kitties; Kuma (12yr), Melon (2yrs) and Tora (10months) who all know how to do some basic tricks (sit, paw, and wait).
