Rui joined our team in April 2015. He says, "It warms my heart to work with great and talented coworkers who truly care about their patients. We all make one amazing team!" During his time here, Rui has learned a great deal and works closely with Dr. Miele on canine rehabilitation. "One of my favorite things to do at the hospital is assist Dr. Miele with his acupuncture, cold laser therapy and canine rehabilitation services. I fell in love with making a difference in an animal's life and I hope to continue doing so for a long time."

Rui hopes to one day go back to school and further his studies in the field. In his spare time Rui likes to play the guitar, sing, go to the gym, and hang out with a few friends.
