Technician SupervisorGeorge Jackson
George came to VCA in September, 2010 from North Carolina. He brings with him more than 10 years of veterinary experience, including emergency medicine. We were thrilled to have George (and his dog Daphne) join VCA Annandale July 2012. George loves helping clients with their behavior questions.
Outside of work George enjoys running, spending time with his family and friends, especially at the beach.
"Ever since I could remember I wanted to care for animals. I remember the days when my mother would make me empty all of my pockets before entering the house, because if she did not all the "creatures" i befriended would end up spending the night inside. I love the appreciation that is expressed across the faces of the pets I see when I have provided some sort of help. I could not see myself doing anything other than working in the animal care field." - George.

Veterinary AssistantCasey Nuckols
"Growing up in West Virginia, I learned to appreciate two things: Mountaineer football and the beauty of animals. When I landed myself n North Carolina for college, the first thing I did was start working as an assistant at a veterinary hospital so I could continue to be surrounded by animals on a daily basis. Eighteen years later, I have completed all my schooling, I still love my job at an animal hospital and of course I still love Mountaineer football." - Casey

Veterinary AssistantTammy Truong
School: George Mason University
Tammy has been with VCA Annandale since July, 2011. Having worked in the veterinary field for over 5 years her favorite thing that keeps smiling is the surprises each day brings. She has a special interest in emergencies and the occasional cat with an attitude.
When she is not at work Tammy enjoys marine biology, shark and turtle research to be more specific and going to the beach. Tammy has a dog, Brownie and a cat, Darwin at home, which keep her busy.
"Since I was 6 years old I knew I wanted to work with animals... Well I knew I wanted to grow up and be a dog...same thing. Since then I have worked with all kinds of animals; from cats and dogs to fish and cows. I came to VCA 2 years ago to continue my passion of understanding animals. For the past few years I have realized my curiosity for animals has reached beyond cats and dogs and I have recently started working with aquatic animals.
I am about to graduate from George Mason University and will be working with sea turtles and larger marine mammals, but my heart will always have room for the cuddly cats and dogs of the world. I am here doing what I do every day because I love learning something new every day and always being on my toes with VCA.
At home I have a cat named Darwin who is more like a dog than my actual dog Brownie, who I have grown up with for the past 6 years. Both Darwin and Brownie make up my family as well as my best friends. With out them I never would have made it this far in life." - Tammy.
