"Growing up, I've had pets as long as I can remember-though they were a bit untraditional (white ducks and mallards). From there I have had rabbits, birds fish, a turtle , dogs, and cats as memebers of my family. I enjoy working with animals and like being a part of ensuring others' family members are healthy. I find it rewarding to interact with owners and their pets."

"When I was a little girl I lived on a farm so we were always getting stray animals.
I would always take them in and feed them and give them a lot of love.
The sick ones I would do my best to nurse back to health. I eventually got the
Nickname Ellie Clampett. My passion for animals eventually led me to become a
Veterinary Technician. Which I Have found to be very rewarding."

Veterinary AssistantCasey Twardowski
Veterinary Tech School: Harcum College
Casey owns 3 dogs. Two golden retrievers, Sheldon and Jordan, and one pitbull named Princess. When she is not working, Casey enjoys playing field hockey and going to the beach. "When I was little, my Grandmom and I would volunteer at the local shelter and I loved seeing the vets and techs make all of the sick dogs that came in feel better. I always told my family I wanted to work at a veterinary hospital and I would practice on my dogs at home. When college came around I had to pick a school that had a veterinary technician program or pick a school that had a field hockey team with no veterinary technician program. As much as I loved the game I picked veterinary technician because of the love and passion I have for animals. Now being a vet tech, I know I made the right decision. I love coming to work every day and helping with the patients."
