Dr. Niccolett (Nikki) Ochoa is a New Mexico native; born and raised in Albuquerque, NM. She attended Highland High School and then received her Bachelor of Science from the University of New Mexico. She took a short hiatus from the Southwest while she attended the Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine where she earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. Some of her veterinary interests include nutrition and dermatology. Dr. Ochoa really missed the mountains and chile (red and green), so she has now returned home to serve the ABQ community.
During her free time, Dr. Ochoa enjoys spending time with her pack of pets which include three chocolate Labradors, one Shih Tzu, two cats, and one conure. When she isn’t tending to their furry needs, she likes hiking in the mountains, camping, and relaxing on the hammock. She is also a self-proclaimed”Foodie”, so if you have recommendations for delicious local food, send them her way!
