    "I started out in Hospitality Management for Humans and had one kitty and my son in my life.  Then moved to Hospitality Management for pets at a Pet Resort here in Virginia.  I wanted to be a part of better care for our furry family members and landed at VCA Annandale in 2010 and now have 6 furries, 1 snake and of course my handsome son.  I care about each and every one of our patients!  I care that my team at VCA Annandale cares about every one or our patients!  I'm proud to say I am their leader and will remain their leader for years to come!" - Birgit
