Emily Jaramillo

Emergency & Critical Care Assistant

Introducing Emily, a native of Quito, Ecuador, where she spent her formative years. The thing she pines for the most from her hometown is the delectable cuisine that she grew up with. Upon relocating to North Jersey with her family at the age of 8, Emily found solace in the warm embrace of the Latino community and the advanced healthcare system that enabled her sister with Cerebral Palsy to receive the necessary care.

During her sophomore year of undergraduate studies, Emily delved into the world of medical billing and coding. However, after conversing with medical practitioners, she realized that she couldn't bear the idea of delivering upsetting news about the health of her community. It was then that she had an epiphany and decided to shift her career aspirations towards veterinary medicine.

Emily embarked on her journey in the field by taking up a position as an assistant at a local veterinary general practice. It was there that her passion for veterinary medicine was sparked. Working in a tight-knit community, Emily cherished witnessing the growth of her patients and becoming an integral part of their families. Her gap year allowed her to further her veterinary career by joining East Brunswick Animal Hospital, a facility that catered to a diverse range of animal species.

It was during this time that Emily discovered her love for caring for animals of all kinds, including dogs, cats, birds, and even exotics. Her tenure at Edison Animal Hospital was a period of growth and continuous learning, where she honed her skills and expanded her knowledge in veterinary medicine. The supportive mentors she encountered celebrated her acceptance into the University of Pennsylvania's Vet school, presenting her with her first stethoscope as a token of good luck.

Upon relocating to Philadelphia for school, Emily became a part of the PASE Emergency Team. Immersed in a dynamic environment surrounded by specialists and professionals dedicated to teaching and fostering the growth of the team, Emily found her calling in the emergency department. The unpredictability and fast-paced nature of the work fueled her passion for the field.
Outside of her professional commitments, Emily can be found diligently studying in the library for her exams or enjoying quiet moments with Pecan, her blind 1-year-old Sphynx cat.
