Dr. Maria Cartagena — affectionately known by staff and clients alike as simply "Dr. Maria" — is a proud graduate of the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine, where she earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine with a focus on mixed animal practice, and served one term as president of the Student Chapter for Veterinary Dentistry. She enjoys all aspects of veterinary care, including veterinary dentistry, care for birds and exotics, and surgery. Her professional interests extend beyond veterinary medicine to include entrepreneurship, client education, and community outreach.
Dr. Maria is fluent in both English and Spanish. Dr. Maria moved to Houston at a young age and is an unabashedly proud Texan, although she has lived in three different countries during her lifetime and visited many others. She, her husband, and her two daughters are proud to call Galveston home. In fact, her second daughter is a true Galveston "BOI."
Dr. Maria is also the proud owner of three rescue cats and a fiercely loyal, two-legged rescue Chihuahua.

She attended veterinary school at the Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine, after which she worked as an ER veterinarian in Arlington, Texas before moving to the Galveston area with her husband, Jim.
Anna’s hobbies include playing with her dog and cats, cooking, playing guitar and ukulele, and spending quality time with her family and friends.
Dr. Hubbell is excited to be in the Galveston area and is so thankful for the opportunity to serve her community and their beloved pets.
