Brittany Pinto Online Pharmacy Specialist

Brittany was born to a Puerto Rican and Salvadorian family and raised in Miami, Florida. In 2020, Brittany graduated from Florida International University with a Bachelor's in Biological Sciences and a minor in Chemistry while on the pre-veterinary track.

Brittany has worked in a shelter clinic, two general practices, and a 24-hour emergency and trauma center for animals. Being in the field for six years, she worked as a kennel assistant, then a technician, a customer service representative, and a patient care coordinator on our team.
