    Natalie Gallo
    Veterinary Tech School: Delgado

    Natalie graduated in 2012 from Delgado’s Vet Tech program, and took the hardest test ever to receive her national certification as a Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT). In January of 2013, Natalie became part of the awesome team at VCA Causeway Animal Hospital
    She often tells clients that she has the best job ever, and sincerely means it each time. She loves what she does, and it doesn’t hurt that her position entails copious amounts of puppy kisses. 
    Natalie shares her life we her favorite boy ever, Stewie, a 100-plus pound Mastiff mix and a rotten, but loved, calico named Scully. They endure hours of rock-n-roll from KISS and the Ramones and Batman cartoons. What? They love it, she swears!
