"My name is Heather and I have had the joy of working as a veterinary technician for the past 9 years. I started working with animals because like a lot of little girls, I wanted to hug puppies and kittens all day. I continue to work with animals because I enjoy being able to help animals in need.
I had the pleasure of joining the fantastic team at VCA Animal Healing Center in October of 2013. While I really enjoyed the pace of the animal emergency room for the past 8 years, I was ready to build lasting relationships with my patients and their owners. At the VCA Animal Healing Center, one can really get a sense of family and I could not be more excited to be a part of it."
Kim has been with us since 2008. She grew up in Titusville NJ and currently resides in Ewing NJ with her Rottweiler Tyson and 4 cats, Tofu, Brody,Monster and Little. Kim is a graduate of Delaware Valley College with a degree in equine science.
"I became a veterinary technician to improve the quality of life and health of animals. Even as a child I have wanted to be involved in the medical care of animals. Of course back then I said I wanted to be a veterinarian when I grew up. I have as of yet been unable to complete the schoool to become a vet so I have become the next best thing, a veterinary technician. I enjoy educating clients on proper ways of caring for their beloved companions to give them the longest and healtiest possible life."

I have been a vet tech for more than 19 years and could never imagine doing anything else, in fact I have never had another job. I always new I wanted to be a part of this amazing profession where we not only get to help animals but also people in a big way.
