    Tanya C.
    Veterinary Tech School: CVA Level I Through TVMA

    I began my veterinary experience by enroling in a CVA program through TVMA and joined VCA Countryside Animal Hospital as an intern in the spring of 2009 and was soon offered a position with the hospital. I have been part of the VCA family ever since and enjoy everything I do within the hospital from assisting clients to preping patients for surgery.
    I have two dogs (Pitbulls) named Coco and Knuckles and two turtles named Squirt and Squirtle (from Pokemon) and two cats named Milli and Mika. I enjoy spending time with my famiy and friends, traveling, and anything that envolves me being outdoors.

    I was born in Sioux City, Iowa; where I attended school at Western Iowa Tech for 1 year to become a Cetrified Veterinary Assistant. I moved to Texas shortly after finding a Job in the Veterinary Field online. I have lived in Texas since 2008 and have worked at VCA Countryside Animal Hospital during this time. In my spare time you will find me attending events with my children such as youth basketball, football and playing games at Chuck E Cheese. I also have 2 dogs and a cat that occupy the remainder of my time.
