Chris grew up in Niland, California, but moved to Arizona in 2018 via North Dakota. He has always had a love for animals and knew that he wanted to work with them in some way. He began his career as a veterinary technician in 2007, working in different hospitals until finally joining the River Road Pet Clinic team in 2018. He shares his animal handling skills with the Ironwood Pig Sanctuary, where he helps part-time with the care of the resident pigs. In his spare time, Chris enjoys fishing and hunting with his German Shorthaired Pointer “Jezebel”.
