About me

Being a veterinary technician requires much more than certified credentials. It means bringing your talents, skills, dedication, and a desire for developing alongside your peers. But, most importantly, it means showing up each day with a passion for pets and working with others who believe preventive care is the key to helping pets achieve long and healthy lives. In addition to on-paper qualifications that are of course important, I actively seek to thrive on delivering outstanding client and pet experiences.
