DVM, BA, BS
Hello! My name is Victoria Baker and I’m a technician at the Animal Medical Clinic of Punta Gorda. I grew up in Punta Gorda on my families show cattle operation. I attended Redlands community college in El Reno, Oklahoma and West Texas A&M in Canyon Texas, where I studied animal science and was on a national champion livestock judging team.
I’m active in the community by volunteering as a 4-H leader teaching livestock judging and swine showmanship, nutrition and health. My passion has always been animal science and helping the youth in our community.
I started working at the Animal Medical Clinic of Punta Gorda in 2017 (BEST DESCISION EVER). I own four dogs, two Pembroke Welsh Corgis named Whiskey and Delilah, one Chihuahua named Belle, and a mixed dog that I rescued named Ellie aka Fireball. My little sister and I own and operate a small show cattle and show pig operation called Baker Sisters Livestock.
You can always find me at the office with a big smile on my face doing what I love! Saving animals, helping to keep them healthy and being there for people when they need it most. If I happen to smell like a pig or a cow just know I was raised in a barn!

Hi, my name is Abby! I am a graduate of Charlotte high school. I’ve always loved animals and have a huge interest in Animal Science. I am a proud "fur- mom" to a Catahoula puppy named Oakley, and a Siberian Husky named ace, along with 3 ducks. I recently joined the Animal Medical Clinic in March 2021 and have loved every minute of it! I strive to be the best that I can be and help others when needed. When you don't find me here at the front desk, I'm probably out enjoying my favorite activities. I love to go fishing, hang out with cows, spend time with my family and friends, and just enjoy life to the fullest. My dream is to have a lot of land full of cows and pigs. I've been an animal lover all my life. The quote "Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawaken." is something I strongly live by this. Animals are my passion in life. I look forward to many years serving our patients and clients!
