I have been a veterinary technician for 10 years and have worked at VCA Conewago Animal Hospital for the past 3 years. Growing up I had a lot of animals so it seemed natural for me to work with them.
Working at VCA Conewago Animal Hospital has been a rewarding experience. The long standing clients and staff are really great to work with. It is nice to be around people who care about animals just as much as me. To me nothing beats a wagging tail or a purring cat greeting me.
I have two dogs named Dasher and Lenny. I have two cats named Zeke and Zoe. Outside of work I enjoy traveling, golfing, and spending time with my fiancé and pets.
I was born and raised in Maryland and moved to Codorus, PA in 2010. In kindergarten I became a vegetarian, and have been ever since. I went to college for AutoCAD, but quickly realized it was not my dream job. I began working PT at a large boarding facility and became manager 1 month later. Three years later, I had my beautiful daughter and took time off. When it was time to go back to the real world, I was hired at a Veterinarian hospital, and have never looked back.
My family includes my husband, daughter, stepson, 1 dog and 6 cats. We enjoy camping and of course, the beach. We do enjoy the mountains in the fall.
WHY I love my job:
I have never worked with a better team. Everyone here at VCA Conewago are genuinely in this field to do what is best for pets. There is compassion and dedication with every team member, which makes it much easier to come to work everyday.
I love being able to see a sick pet come in one day, and to see they are "back to themselves" at a recheck appointment. I enjoy educating clients about why our services and products are so important to the well-being of their four legged family members.
