After ten years working as a real estate agent, Mrs. Rapoport felt it was time for a change and dedicate her time to what she loves most…DOGS!
Animals have always played an integral part in her life; as a child, Lorena was introduced to the world of horse breeding and training by her father, who owned a Paso Fino Horse Ranch in Colombia.
As an adult, Mrs. Rapoport moved to the USA and became a certified nutritionist and dog trainer; Lorena currently has 2 American Pit Bull terriers named Simon born in 2010, and Lolita born in 2017 and 2 bearded dragons Martin and Noel.
Over the years close friends and family would ask her to board their dogs for them. This might be for a day or week(s) due to business trips, school, work, etc. When the owner picked up their pet or came to visit they always asked her to write down everything that she was doing because they couldn’t believe the increased levels of energy, vitality, and health they saw in their pets.
Lorena always told them “we are just taking care of your pet like one of the family”.
Dr. Chung was born in Kingston, Jamaica; she moved to the USA with her family when she was six years old and grew up in SWFL.
She received her Bachelors degree from The University of Florida majoring in Animal Sciences.
After graduating she came back home, where we were lucky enough to hire her as a vet assistant in 2012.
Not long after she had the opportunity to follow her dreams of being a veterinarian, and in 2016 Christa was accepted to Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine.
She completed a clinical year at Louisiana State University and graduated in 2022. Now, we are happy to have her back as our Veterinarian.
Dr. Chung has 2 dogs Thomas (Cocker Spaniel) and Emily (Shih Tzu).
