Corissa Antemesaris Chief Humanitarian Officer

Corissa’s work experience includes over 20 years in shelter medicine, referral medicine, emergency medicine, and TCVM. She also provided relief work in the Denver Metro area prior to relocating to Florida. She has been working at VHA since 2013, specializing in internal medicine and oncology.

For Corissa, much of the work that VHA does is all about love and connection, a basic human need. The VHA tribe fulfills this need through their relationships with pets and/or work family. Supporting people with love and compassion when this connection is threatened brings Corissa fulfillment. She is motivated to empower those around her to reach their potential and realize their wildest dreams.

Corissa does not have any pets of her own, but she does have a large family, and many of her family members have pets of their own. She currently enjoys the company of 2 dogs, 3 cats, one pig, one turtle, 2 bearded dragons, and 5 chickens.

In her personal life, Corissa enjoys the love and adventure of her blended family. Her hobbies include music, gardening, and topics of health, longevity, and environmental sustainability. She believes in life-long learning, and has ventured outside her comfort zone to start piano and voice lessons.

Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better. MAYA ANGELOU
