Technician SupervisorCathy Griffin
I have always had a passion for animals since I was young. I was given the opportunity many years ago to work At VCA Rock Creek...I accepted and ran with it! After more than 20 years I can honestly say that I do what I do, for the patients and the clients. They need me for the good times and the not so good times. I get great satisfaction every day taking care of the pets and working with an exceptional staff!
I started this job as a kennel attendant and loved being able to play an interact with the pets. I was given the opportunity to advance and here I am...a veterinary technician, and I wouldn't want to do anything else! I love the pets and being able to take part in their medical care is extremely satisfying and rewarding. I also would not want to work anywhere else... VCA Rock Creek is my home away from home.
I have a love for all animals. I enjoy teaching and educating the pet parents, so they have a true understanding of what our recommendations are and what is truly the best medicine for their pets. I enjoy being an advocate for those who cannot speak for themselves.
As a child I had 2 cats, until I reached the age of 5 and got my first puppy, who I named "Bandit". He soon became my very best friend and my shadow. Fifteen years later that has not changed, because of his love and affection I decided to give back and came to VCA Rock Creek, I love working with pets and help them have the best possible life.
Ever since I was a little girl, animals have always been a passion of mine. My family can vouch for that! VCA Rock Creek has given me the opportunity to work in a field that I've dreamed of working in since I was 3. My goal is to one day be a vet (it's a work in progress), so I'm very grateful to be gaining experience. Hopefully I will be able to continue working with pets for a long time.
