Amarilis Montalvo-Ortiz - Hospital Manager

Amarilis joined the Cedarcrest Animal Hospital team in 2012.

Despite having no prior experience in the field of veterinary medicine, her hard work and dedication to our clients and their pets quickly moved her up the ranks to where she is today. She truly believes in the work that the staff at Cedarcrest Animal Hospital does collectively and how they strive to provide exceptional care for every patient that walks through the door. In her own words:

“My favorite part in the veterinary field is the authenticity and complete art that each and every one person brings to the clinic as a whole. Watching a groomer groom and loving what she does. Watching the doctors take care of the animals as if it were their own. Watching a receptionist feel the concern for the client as if they were going through it as well. Watching kennel and playcare take care of and handle the pets with just love and compassion. In all honesty, THE TEAM of dedicated employees that love their craft and have such a passion for what they do.”

Amarilis is a member of the Georgia Veterinary Managers Association (GAVMA) and is currently enrolled in veterinary management courses at Penn Foster. Her primary passion outside of work lies with her family but she also loves living on their farm in the country and caring for their menagerie of animals. Some of those animals include a Chinchilla named Maria (who she refers to as her granddaughter), 2 cats, 8 dogs, and many, many chickens.
