Madeleine Canlapan was born deep in the jungles of the Philippines where she foraged and hunted for food. Eventually, she found her way to the big city and at the age of 20 followed her dreams to go to America. She worked hard as a barista and then as an auto loan processor until she became a dog mom to a Yorkshire Terrier named Lamb Chop. While being a loving dog mom, she discovered her true passion and calling in animal care. She started out with doggy daycare then moved into veterinary medicine working at various animal hospitals. She joined McGrath Veterinary Center in 2019 and is currently training to be certified as a Registered Veterinary Technician. When she is not working hard, she is taking care of her precious baby Lamb Chop and her big brother Kenley, a 165lb Great Dane. In her free time, she can be found rock climbing in the beautiful Santa Monica mountains or training in Muay Thai.
