    Megan Roppolo

    Megan graduated from Whitman-Hanson Regional High School and is now working towards her Liberal Arts degree with a focus in Sociology at UMass Dartmouth. She has been a member of the VCA team since 2005 starting as a Kennel Technician and eventually working her way up to a Veterinary Technician. Her special interests are exotics as she enjoys working with reptiles the most. Outside of work she likes to spend time with her family and friends. She shares her home with her dog, Chance and her cats, Bella, Pheobe, and Zoe. She also has a turtle named Tonka who she rescued after Tonka had been hit by a car. Tonka's back legs have been replaced by wheels which doesn't seem to phase her at all.
