Registered Veterinary TechnicianMary R
Mary grew up on a Dairy farm in Vermont and always wanted to have a career working with animals, so after high school she went to the Bel-Rea Institute of Animal Technology and graduated in 2004 with an associates degree, and has been working in the Veterinary field as a registered veterinary technician ever since. Mary has worked for VCA Fort Worth for 2 years.
When not at work Mary and her Husband love spending time with their 5 dogs (the kids) Sonic, Luna, Olive Oyl, Bunny, and Moxie. They have a little problem with strays in their neighborhood so they try to help out as much as they can with feeding them and trying to find homes (if anyone is interested).
"As far back as I can remember I've always wanted to work with animals. I treat every patient that comes in like they are my own. I wouldn't change my career for anything in the world. I can honestly say I love what I do!" Meliea has been an ICU technician for us since 2007, but started as a receptionist in the veterinary field in 2003. When she is not caring for our patients, she loves spending time with her dog, Ky'mani.
Tanya came to VCA in the fall of 2012 as a kennel technician, but transferred to technician in early 2013. She has an American Staffordshire terrier at home named Junior and in her free time, Tanya likes to relax with her five children. Tanya enjoys working at VCA Fort Worth because of the great team, the friendly atmosphere, and the top-quality medical services we offer.
Brandie started at VCA Fort Worth in 2011, although she has been in pet care since 2007. She has completed many hours of volunteer work in Dallas and has her Canine CPR certification. She loves animals and has acquired three of her own: Malu, Tootsie Roll, and Solo Mio. She often enjoys barbequing and camping with her husband and two beautiful daughters.
Crystal has been in the veterinary field for roughly ten years--from technician to kennel staff, she's seen it all! Crystal joined our team in April of 2014 and has since then become indispensable. In her free time, Crystal enjoys spending it with her 5 dogs: Willow, a 3 year-old lab mix; Laila, a 3 year-old miniature pinscher; Bentley and NJ, 2 year-old chiweenies; and Nick, a 4 year-old rat terrier.
Tori has been with VCA since the fall of 2013. She is one of our caring overnight technicians.
I started working at VCA FW as an overnight ICU tech just 2 short months ago! I'm enjoying the new challenge and especially appreciate the warm welcome I've received from the entire team here. I've been a technician in a rural community in Arizona for most of the last 12 years and am looking forward to this opportunity to grow. I brought my family with me from Arizona: my Daughter Lynsy, 3 dogs, 5 cats and a tank full of fish!
