Dr. Debra Diaz

Dr. Debra Diaz joined VESCNM’s Santa Fe ER this year. She was born and raised in Mississippi and wanted to be a veterinarian since childhood.

She started riding horses very young, and got her first pony named “Bo Duke” for Christmas at age 9. Fulfilling her dream to become a veterinarian, she received her veterinary degree from Mississippi State in 1998. She initially started practicing with horses in Texas, but shortly after she transitioned to small animal medicine and then emergency medicine. She has lived and worked in Mississippi, Florida and mostly Texas since graduation. She has two daughters named Julia and Aubrey. She has a strong passion for western performance and ranch horses outside of work. She has 3 rescue dogs: Pinky Sue and Lola Louise (chihuahuas), and Ellie Pearl (English bulldog). She also has a retired cutting horse Josie, pony Zipper, and new addition to the family, a red roan filly Catori.
