Hailing from Guayaquil, Ecuador, Alfonso Reyes is Practice Manager at Sunset Animal Hospital. Wielding a diverse set of skills acquired during his previous work in finance and management, Alfonso brings the nuanced business and tech savvy necessary for the practice to successfully navigate the complex rigors that face any enterprise.
After finishing his Bachelor's in Management and Marketing from Florida Atlantic University, Alfonso ventured onward, completing an MBA from Nova Southeastern University and then going on to work for Motorola. After nine successful years, he left to work full-time as the Practice Manager at Sunset Animal Hospital. Always striving for further self-improvement, Alfonso also holds a Purdue University Executive Certificate of the Veterinary Practice Management Program (VPMP).
Though he feels managing the practice is far more labour-intensive than his previous occupation, he also finds it to be a far more fulfilling position. At Sunset Animal Hospital, he's able to see the direct impact that his efforts have on a daily basis and is able to bring his previously developed skill sets to create real changes in the lives of the patients and their families. Metric and goal-oriented, Alfonso revels in leading a team and developing effective strategies that propel the practice forward.
Outside of the practice, he resides with his wife along with their loving brood of bulldogs and two kids. He delights in spending time with his family and teaching his kids new skills such as how to play soccer or ride a bike when he's away from the office. After managing to find a way to integrate his love of animals and his business skills into his daily work routine, Alfonso has demonstrated the ability to not just optimize the practice, but his life.
