    DeAnn Young

    "I am a very motivated open book and this field allows me to soak up knowledge everyday. I enjoy the challenge and responsibility it takes to make a difference in an owner and pets life on a day to day basis. How many people can say they do that at work. The everlasting stressful conditions humble and remind me why I shouldn't take things for granted and should be thankful. This is a passion of mine in which I do want to grow. We save lives as a TEAM everyday that's why I come to work. Our pets are the number one priority. They're people too! And we all love our furry friends!"
