Originally from Cuba, Yulis moved to South Florida in the early 2000’s. Yulis has always had a passion for animals and working with them in Cuba gave him some of the experience he needed. Knowing that he would have to push himself harder in order to stand out, he attended and graduated from South Tech University as a veterinary assistant. He is currently enrolled in yet another program to become a certified veterinary technician. He is the father of a little girl and the owner of a 3-legged “Yorkie” named Kilo.
