Veterinary Tech School: Blue Ridge
Chris is the intrepid Hospital Manager at VCA Pets First. He also manages VCA Total Care on Broad Street. In 1990 Chris began as a veterinary assistant. He later received his degree from Blue Ridge Community College and became a licensed veterinary technician. After 17 years in emergency medicine, he decided to move to the management side of things. You may not see him or talk to him on the phone but he works tirelessly behind the scenes to make sure everything is running smoothly. His vision for VCA Pet’s First is to create a hospital that provides the best medical care and client service possible. Outside of work, Chris shows his 2 AKC Bernese Mountain Dogs (his two cats watch from the sidelines), runs marathons, and takes professional photographs at dog show events.
