    Tabitha Andrus

    Tabitha has been with VCA Riverside since in high school (July 2003) and has grown with our hospital over the past 11 years.  Starting in the kennel department she learned her way around a hospital, caring for every pet like they are her own.  She has devoted her whole working career to VCA Riverside and serving the pets and people of our community.  She was taught and trained by our wonderful doctors over the years as she progressed to a veterinary technician position and finally evolved to Technician Supervisor through her hard work and dedication.  She is currently taking classes toward a degree in Veterinary Technology and hopes to become a Certified Technician upon completion.    In her free time Tabitha raises and trains hunting hounds and enjoys the outdoors.  She is always off on a wildlife adventure.
