Dr. Ogino was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. She attended the University of Hawaii-Manoa and received her B.A. in Zoology, with a minor in History. She went on to receive her veterinary degree at Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine, where she had quite an experience learning how to live in the snow! After practicing several years at a small animal private practice in Northern California, the sun and surf called her back, and she migrated south to beautiful Torrance.
Dr. Ogino enjoys doing any kind of activity on the water (most especially surfing), hiking wit her dog, traveling, and is an avid reader and baker. Dr. Ogino is owned by her border collie/lab retriever mix Pilikia (=trouble in Hawaiian) and sister kitties Sachi and Sookie. Her professional interests include dermatology, internal medicine, and dentistry. The next goal in her professional career is to become certified in Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine.
Dr. Pope was born and raised in Austin, Texas. She received her undergraduate degree in Biology from Northwestern University, before deciding to head abroad for her veterinary education. She obtained her degree from The Royal Veterinary College; an AVMA accredited veterinary university in London, and is currently a Member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons.
Prior to joining the team at Plaza Del Amo Animal Hospital, Dr. Pope completed a rotating internship at Inland Valley Veterinary Specialists. In addition, she has a special interest in Oncology and spent 8 months working with the Oncology department of VCA West Los Angeles to develop her skills in this field.
In her free time Dr. Pope enjoys exploring the outdoors, relaxing with her three-legged rescue cat (Furiosa) and puggle (Pickle), organizing board game nights, and playing her ukulele.
Dr. Sinnott is an LA native, born and raised in South Pasadena. Her early love of animals led her beg her parents for many childhood pets. They appeased her with several guinea pigs, a hamster, multiple turtles, and one very special Shih-Tzu named Gilber. She attended the University of Southern California where she finally decided to become a veterinarian.
Dr. Sinnott attended veterinary school at UC Davis, where she particularly enjoyed courses on cardiology, behavior, and ophthalmology. While not in class, she kept very busy as President of the Veterinary Business Management Association and captain of the vet school intramural ultimate Frisbee team. After achieving her DVM, Dr. Sinnott missed the sushi in Southern California so much that she came straight back and has been here ever since!
In her spare time, Dr. Sinnott enjoys backpacking, hiking, rollerblading, drinking tea, lounging at the beach, and playing ultimate Frisbee. Every fall she clears her weekend schedule to watch Trojan football with friends (Fight on!). She is always on the lookout to adopt her next furry friend, though her favorite animal isn't furry at all - it's a hedgehog!
