Rick Albrecht is the Hospital Manager for Bay Ridge Animal Hospital.
Rick received his undergraduate degree in Animal Science from the University of Delaware. He started his career in the veterinary industry as an assistant. He then sharpened his skills and worked several years as a technician. Rick has worked in several departments including General Practice, Internal Medicine, Cardiology, ICU/Critical Care, Emergency/Triage, and Surgery.
He was considering changing careers and returned to school and received his Master's degree in Science and Environmental Education. Rick taught second grade for one year, but realized that a traditional classroom setting wasn't for him. Plus there were no dogs to play with in school! He returned to the veterinary field and worked in several different administrative roles at Fifth Avenue Veterinary Specialists and the Animal Specialty Center where he has served as Referral Coordinator, Charge Capture Analyst, and Training Manager. He has worked on several different community outreach projects, coordinated Continuing Education events for Veterinarians and Technicians, expanding VCA's social media presence, and many other projects.
Rick lives in Brooklyn with his wife and son.
