Licensed Veterinary Technician
I studied hard and passed my state exam in 2011 and have been on a study course of treating sick pets, helping to keep pets healthy and educating clients.
I like spicy kitties and naughty puppies the most as they keep my days interesting.
When I’m not looking into a mouth or squeezing an anal gland, I most enjoy kayaking, hiking and crafting.
I hope to meet you and your pet soon and form a long-lasting relationship keeping your pets safe and healthy.
