Hospital ManagerJana Scelia
I have always been drawn to animals, and I have always viewed them as my most loyal and truest friends. I knew I wanted to make my career centered on animals, although in what capacity was never truly clear. So, I decided to try out most of them! I started in the equine world, managing elite level equestrian facilities and traveling with international level riders and trainers. From there, I made the leap into veterinary medicine, taking a position as a technician in an equine surgical hospital. After moving to Tucson, AZ, I took a technician position at a small animal emergency and specialty hospital. It was here that I found my true calling, and have worked in several emergency and specialty hospitals, including the ICU at the UGA Veterinary Teaching Hospital.
After the long hours and tough schedule that comes along with being an emergency technician, I strove to combine my management experience with my veterinary experience and manage a veterinary hospital. I love helping owners feel that their pet is getting the very best care possible, as well as keeping the hospital running smoothly so the Doctors, technicians and reception staff can focus on giving our patients and owners their full focus.
I am still an avid equestrian, and spend most of my free time with my fiancé and Border Collie mix Balian.
