Grace Chavez is one of our Referral Coordinators. She is likely the first person with whom you will interact, at VCA VRA, if you are seeking information about the departments of Oncology, Neurology, Physical Rehabilitation or Surgery. Rest assured you will be greeted by a woman with a wealth of knowledge, who exudes both kindness and compassion.

Grace has been working in the veterinary field for over ten years. She has always had empathy for animals but in her current position, she has found tremendous satisfaction talking to and building relationships with their owners. In fact, this has become the highlight of her job.

Gracie has two daughters, Brianna and Adrianna; one son, Mason and one stepson, Javion. With the addition of their orange feline fluff balls, named Phoebe and Oliver, the Chavez house is a pleasure place to return to at the end of a busy day. Although she remains constantly active with sports and spending time with her family, Gracie becomes revived after dancing the night away with her wonderful husband, Javier.
