Dr. Yamazaki obtained her bachelor's degree from UC San Diego in 2007. Reconsidering her previous career plan, she began working in a multi-specialty veterinary hospital as a receptionist, eventually becoming a technician in their dermatology department. She worked in this position for 3 years, and found herself drawn to the potential of becoming a veterinary dermatologist herself.
Dr. Yamazaki graduated in 2014 from the Atlantic Veterinary College at the University of Prince Edward Island (Canada). She moved back to San Diego and completed a rotating internship at VCA Emergency Animal Hospital and Referral Center, followed by a dermatology specialty internship at Veterinary Specialty Hospital, and then eagerly accepted a residency position with Animal Dermatology Clinic in 2016.
Outside of the clinic, Dr. Yamazaki enjoys yoga, reading food blogs, playing the ukulele, volunteering as a crisis counselor for domestic violence survivors, and exploring farmer's markets with her husband and two chihuahuas.
