For as long as I can remember, I have always owned or been around animals, from as small as a hamster to as large as a horse. I knew by middle school that I wanted to carry my love of animals into my career. I decided that I did not only want to be around pets, but to also contribute to their health. I enjoy being able to educate others on how to best care for their pets and what those pets need to keep them happy and healthy. Animals of all sizes, and even species, have become a part of many peoples' families, and their care is very important to those families. I am proud to be able to be a part of taking care of these family members and also educating others how to do so as well.
I first started my career in veterinary medicine at Dr Sparks’ office as her kennel attendant. When she merged with VCA, I received a job offer to work for another company doing something very different than working with animals. I enjoyed being there, however, there was just something lacking in my day to day work. I really missed interacting with animals. They always made me feel better when I was having a bad day.
When I found out that VCA was hiring, I jumped on the chance to work with animals again. I love to make both patients and clients feel better. While working here at VCA, I have advanced from kennel attendant to technician and am enjoying every minute of it. I try to learn everything I can and am constantly asking questions about medicine cases.
My favorite part of veterinary medicine is helping in surgery. I love to make sure the patient is safe during anesthesia and wakes up pain free. One day I plan on becoming a registered veterinary technician. Working at VCA Greater Savannah Animal Hospital is such an exciting job and I am learning new things every day.
