Drawing upon a rich background in Veterinary Medicine and Government Leadership, Dr. Maria Solacito is dedicated to empowering veterinarians to enhance their communication, forge meaningful connections, and bolster their confidence, enabling them to wield a significant influence in their respective spheres. With a passion for mentorship, Dr. Maria has guided fellow veterinarians, imparting valuable insights to fortify their leadership vision.

Originating as a migrant veterinarian in the United States, Dr. Maria navigated her journey from a veterinary technician in ophthalmology and emergency & critical care to achieving licensure as a veterinarian.
Her diverse experience culminated in a remarkable 15-year career at the County of Los Angeles’ Department of Animal and Control, where she ascended from a shelter veterinarian to Chief Veterinarian and later a Deputy Director for operations and special programs. During her tenure, she championed the Shared Leadership philosophy, ensuring the active participation of veterinarians in decision-making processes, revolutionizing program development and management.

In August 2020, Dr. Maria was appointed by California Governor Gavin Newsom to the seven-member Veterinary Medical Board (VMB). As Vice-President of the VMB, she actively engages in regulatory discussions to uphold and enhance professional standards in veterinary medicine, currently serving her second term.

Recently retiring from government service, Dr. Maria established her emergency/urgent care practice in Lancaster, California, driven by a commitment to addressing the pressing issue of access to care. Armed with a profound understanding of governmental systems and community needs, she aims to bridge gaps and bring essential resources to the community as a dedicated service provider.

Beyond her clinical endeavors, Dr. Maria passionately shares her knowledge through speaking engagements and training sessions, embodying the philosophy of “Learn one, Do one, Teach one.” Encouraging others to contribute and elevate each other, she remains dedicated to inspiring and empowering fellow veterinarians.
