Certified Veterinary TechnicianTatum Marquis
Veterinary Tech School: Northwestern Connecticut Community College
School: University of Connecticut, BS
I am originally from Simsbury, Connecticut. In 2011, I received my AS in Veterinary Technology from Northwestern Connecticut Community College, and in 2014, I received my BS in Pathobiology from the University of Connecticut. I have worked for VCA for a year and two months, now. I have five pets: two dogs - a French bulldog named Ellie and a Newfoundland named Buddy Bear, and three cats - Bailey, Charlie, and Hodor. Outside of work, I enjoy painting and drawing. The things I like most about my job are working one-on-one with clients and their pets, being involved from beginning to end on certain medical cases, and being involved in client education. My goal is to become a veterinarian specializing in equine and small animals. I am currently in the process of applying to veterinary colleges for admittance in the fall of 2015.
School: University of Rhode Island, BS
I’m originally from Watertown, Connecticut, and received my BS in Animal Science and Technology from the University of Rhode Island. I’ve worked for VCA for eight years. My seven pets are my cats, Chloe, Koshka, Hannah, and Emily, my two ferrets, Ferris and Pherb, and my dog, Bo. Outside of work, I like snowboarding, hiking, sports, board games, movies, and hanging out with my friends. What I like most about my job is the appreciation from owners when their sick pet is made well, and they can see that we also care for their pet and have their pet’s best interests in mind. My goal is to eventually get back to wild animal care at a zoo or conservation facility.
