Tanya has been living in Maryland for 3 years now; she is originally from New Jersey. She has worked in the veterinary field for several years in New Jersey and can't think of a better job than working with animals. She graduated from Kean University in 2004 with a bachelor's degree in English. She currently lives with 3 cats, 2 of which are blind and were rescued from a shelter in NJ. She enjoys cuddling with her cats, movies, reading, history, video games and spending time with her friends and family.
"Since I was ten years old, I have always had a deep love for animals. If there was a room full of people and one dog, I would be over in the corner with the dog. Animals always seemed like amazing beings, full of unconditional love and acceptance. Naturally my love for animals led me into working for VCA. Being surrounded by animals all day and working in a small office makes it feel more like a family than going to work. Helping animals and making them lead healthier and happier lives gives me a great deal of appreciation for what I do. I feel so blessed that I am finally doing what I love to do and it shows through my work."
Courtney has been working at VCA for almost 8 yaers. She has lived in the area for a long time and graduated from Glasgow High School in 2002. She then attended Delaware Technical Community College. She is our Patient Outreach Coordinator. She enjoys spending time with family, reading a good book, singing, and playing with animals of course.
"I have been with VCA for 8 years and the best years have been with VCA Glasgow. We have an awesome crew. I love interacting with our clients. We relate on so many levels. I'm just a talker naturally, so It helps when someone has their pet in the office to be treated or seen. The animals "sense" it also. They know when someone loves their job. I love being able to pet so many dogs and cats. The dogs show their appreciation much more openly but you can tell when they all are happy. I have been given more chances to improve my knowledge and skills since I have been with VCA Glasgow. I am always being encouraged to learn more to be better. After all we have lives in our hands and must do our best for the animals' sake. Our pets are an extension of us and they are most times part of the family. Most of our clients generally appreciate the love and care we provide as a team. This is why everyday is rewarding...I am happy and proud to say that I get to be a part of such a team."
