Dr. Deleon was born and raised in Turlock, California. She realized from a young age she had a passion for veterinary medicine and started her journey at Canal Veterinary Hospital as a kennel and veterinary assistant through junior high and high school. She obtained her undergraduate degree in biology pre-medicine from Cal State University Monterey Bay, also working full time as a veterinary technician. She then went to veterinary school at UC Davis, where she continued to work as a veterinary technician.
Dr. Deleon has three cats (Owen, Fiona and Sebastian) and a loving Malamute/Husky mix named Noah. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and their energetic son, Asher. She is very excited to be back serving her community in Turlock. She said it is a dream come true to be able to re-acquaint herself with the town, the people and their pets.
