Technician SupervisorDebbie Medina
My passion for animals started at a very young age. In 2007 I found my perfect career and have loved every minute of it. My passion has grown and I love to make every patient feel comfortable with us from the scared little kitten to the large aggressive dog. I feel great satisfaction when a pet gains trust in me. I have a 6 year old son that is the light of my life. My fur babies consist of a 12 year old Pit bull named Vega, a domestic short haired cat named Igor that showed up at my door many years ago and never left and now claims Vega’s bed, and a 13 year old Cairn terrier named Toto. I enjoy spending my free time playing video games, reading, and watching movies surrounded by all my babies (fur and human).
Nikki is one of our loving techs..The reason I come to work everyday is because… there are clients and patients who need me. I love the satisfying feeling when clients come in and know there babies are getting the best care possible. The smile on children’s faces when we can make their best friends cat, dog or hamster goes from being sick to playful and healthy again. Working with clients about home care for their pets to insure the best well being when there not here with us. It’s kind of funny because clients will bring there pets in for something like limping and when they walk through that door their pet seems better and we tell them “they don’t call us Miracle Mile for nothing. So if you would like great care for your pets and friendly staff come on in and see us.
Ever since I was very young I have had a love for all animals. I have been a veterinary technician for 16 years and I love every part of my job. I enjoy building bonds with the clients and educating them with their new puppy on vaccines, and/or preparing them for their pets first surgery whether it is spaying or neutering the pet or a dental that needs to be done. I love watching puppies and kittens come in and being apart of that pets life as he or she grows up. I am able to help the sick get better, the pets that have discomfort get relief and I am able to help the hurt heal. Every day I come to work my office is filled with wagging tails, wet noses, warm hearts and best of all lots of kisses. What's not to love.....
I have always had a love for animals. Since I was a kid I always wanted to be a vet tech. I started out as a Kennel Tech. I loved helping, and taking care of the animals, but I wanted to do more to help. So I started out at an animal hospital from my home town in Chicago. I moved to Florida about a year ago and I couldn’t imagine being in a different field, I love coming to work every day. You never know what’s going to come through the door and who you’ll be able to help. I eventually want to go back to school and become certified.
Veterinary Tech School: Sanford Brown Institute
Animals have always been a big part of my life. Helping rehabilitate sick or injured animals was just something I did as a young boy. I attended Sanford Brown Institute in Fort Lauderdale, Fl in 2012 where I completed a Veterinary Technical Program. I am very happy and excited to be apart of the wonderful family here at the VCA Miracle Mile Animal Hospital. When not at work I enjoy my days with my two sons Ayden and Anthony. I have a wonderful dog at home, her name is Penny. I rescued Penny from a shelter I worked at previously.
