    Maura H

    Maura is a Veterinary Assistant at VCA Pets First Animal Hospital. In 2008 she started her work with animals by travelling solo to Ecuador to work at a wild animal refuge. She formally entered the veterinary field in 2011 and graduated with her BS in Animal Science from the University of Vermont. Maura’s special interests include working with exotics and of course, puppies (because who doesn’t love puppies?). She is also interested in surgical procedures and learning new technical skills. At VCA Pets First, she considers patient care, animal welfare, and client relations her primary responsibilities.
    Maura hales from the wild and wonderful woods of Vermont and enjoys adventuring around the world with her trusty pit bull Apollo. They can often be found taking part in some sort of outdoor adventure or curled up with a book.

    When Asked Why: “I believe it is important to speak up for the welfare of those that cannot speak for themselves.”
