Certified Veterinary TechnicianStephanie B
Veterinary Tech School: Ridgewater College
I graduated from Ridgewater College, in Willmar MN, in the spring of 2014. From there I went on to an internship at a specialty practice in Longmont Colorado. Afterwards I came back home to Minnesota and started working here at VCA in March 2015. I got in this career because of my love for animals! At home I currently have a yellow lab, a border collie lab mix that I rescued, a kitty, a guinea pig, a leopard gecko and a corn snake. In my free time I enjoy playing with my critters and snuggling with them on the couch watching Netflix. I absolutely love my job here and everyone I work with. They are a great supportive team that is always working hard together to give the best care to everyone’s fur babies.

Veterinary Tech School: MN School of Business
I graduated from MN School of Business in 2009, and have worked as a small animal veterinary technician since then. I was fortunate to do my pre-graduation externship at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of MN, and I really enjoyed helping all the wildlife. I have a teenage son, a dog, and two cats. Some of my favorite activities are being out in nature, cooking, gardening, and listening to music, especially local artists. I really like working here because everybody is very nice and supportive - we work very well as a team to provide the best possible care for our patients.

Certified Veterinary TechnicianAriel W
Veterinary Tech School: Madison Area Technical College
I graduated from Madison Area Technical College in 2015 and was given the opportunity to begin my career as a veterinary technician here at VCA Bloomington. I also earned a Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from UW River Falls prior to attending vet tech school. After I finished school in Madison, I moved to Minnesota with my fiancé, our rabbit Licorice, and our hedgehog Yoshi. In my spare time I like to hang out with family and friends, snuggle with Licorice and read a good book, catch up on my favorite television show, and attend Zumba classes. I like working at VCA Bloomington because all of my co-workers are very supportive and team oriented, which allows us to provide exceptional care to your pets.
Veterinary Tech School: Minnesota School of Business
I have been a veterinary technician for 10 years and graduated from MN School of Business in 2009. I started working here at VCA Bloomington Animal Hospital in April 2014. Working with animals has always been a passion of mine. I enjoy meeting new pets every day and getting to know their families. Ever since I was little, I have had a variety of animals; ranging from dogs to mice. Currently, I have 3 cats, a bearded dragon, 2 snakes and hermit crabs.
Veterinary Tech School: Globe College
I attended Globe College and graduated in 2003 as a Veterinary Technician. I completed my internship at Bloomington Animal Hospital and have been here ever since. I enjoy everyday caring for pets and their owners; it's never the same day twice. I have a Chinese Crested named Tator, a cat named Nala, and I am fostering a horse named Mia. I love playing with them all. So does my daughter Keara. I am especially interested in animal behavior and training.
I have lived in Bloomington for over 30 years. I have been working at BVH since 1990. I have also worked at the Bloomington Animal Shelter and The Wagon Wheel, a horse boarding stable. I was voted employee of the year in 2005.
