Technician SupervisorTerry Kennedy
Veterinary Tech School: Harcum College
Terry began her career as a veterinary technician 28 years ago after graduating from Harcum College. She joined the VCA Old Marple team in 1990 as a technician and is currently one of our Technical Supervisors. In Terry's free time she enjoys volunteering with a local feline rescue group and spending time with her kitties.
Why I do what I do: I have always had a love for animals and this became my carreer choice as I never had a dog or cat as a child. My first love was a doberman pincher and remains my favorite breed today. I came to Old Marple in 1990 and arrived with my sidekick, Lila, a doberman who some clients may still remember making her rounds in the hospital or lounging on the original wrap around porch.
Fostering kittens fell in my lap when I was asked to help a local rescue. With the help of Purrfect Paws rescue, I have raised and rehomed 34 kittens. The most fun was them naming the litters and some of the kids became part of my own family. I rarely foster these days but still enjoy assisting the rescue in fund raising.
Special Note: Terry has the biggest heart and is always trying to save some pet out there. She will go over and beyond for that stray just so they have a place to call home. The compassion that she shows them and the pets that come into our hospital is something worth seeing as describing it doesn't do justice. What an amazing lady she is and we hope that if we ever come back as a pet, we find our way into Terry's hands.
