Technician SupervisorChristina Lewis
Fortunately for me I found this field because I had a friend who always told me about her job as a veterinary technician and how much she loved it. I was looking for something in my life that had more meaning and made me feel fulfilled about what I did everyday so it was a perfect choice. I have always loved animals and it was a natural process for me to adjust to this new profession because of that passion. Becoming a true advocate for these amazing creatures is something I am truly proud to be a part of and see myself doing for a very long time to come.
For me it’s never been an option to have animals not be a part of my life; so, it’s only natural to want to work with them. “If you love what you do, then you’ll never work a day in your life.” That’s what coming to work every day feels like. I truly enjoy animal’s instantaneous love and companionship. Being able to experience that every day makes it all worth it to me. Knowing in my heart that what I do on a daily basis makes a difference in pet’s and owner’s lives is why I love working at VCA Promenade Animal Hospital.

I've been around animals since the age of 4 and from then on the love grew. Blessed, my parents allowed me to have animals throughout my youth. To this day I still get to share my love with Arthur, my sweet 16 year old turtle. I wanted a career that allowed me to continue to share my love and help all the animals in need. I love this occupation because it allows me to interact with all types of animals and create a bond with them that is unforgettable. I get to be surrounded by animals all day and love them unconditionally. How many people can say that they love what they do because I certainly can.
I have always loved animals and had a special connection with them since childhood. My affinity for animals grew through my studies in college. I wanted to learn more which led me to pursue my career in the veterinary field in the fall of 2000. I worked in all departments of the animal hospital learning all aspects of animal care. Working in the veterinary field is very rewarding. As a veterinary technician we get to help our patients in all aspects of their health. I chose the veterinary profession as a career because it is very rewarding to see our patients live longer and healthier lives due to our care.
