    School: Oklahoma State University, TechWriter

    Hello! My name is Ann Marie Babst. I have been with VCA Veterinary Medical Center since October 2010. I have a Bachelor’s degree in English/Technical Writing and a minor in History. I wrote software manuals and managed telecom projects for about 10 years. Four years ago, I decided to embark on a new career path and enrolled at TCC in the Veterinary Technology program. I earned my Associates of Applied Sciences degree and became a Registered Veterinary Technician in 2011. All through my childhood and my adult life, animals have always been near and dear to my heart. Having a career in this field is exactly what I was meant to do, even if I did get here in a roundabout way. I am proud to be part of the team at VCA Veterinary Medical Center.
    I have two miniature dachshunds (Amber and Patches), two cats (Odin and July), and a ton of fish (ask my daughter their names). Oh, and I also have a husband (Chuck) and four children (Elizabeth, Lauren, Annika, and Connor). My hobbies include making glass jewelry and volunteering for animal events. I was honored to be accepted as a volunteer with the pre-race laboratory work-ups for the dogs in the Iditarod in Alaska. My team (there were several) saw over 720 dogs! I can’t wait to get back there next year!

    Kayci Butcher
    Veterinary Tech School: TCC Veterinary Technology Program

    Hello! My name is Kayci and I am a Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT). I have worked in the veterinary field since I was 16. In addition to the great deal of experience and training I acquired "in the trenches," I also attended TCC's Veterinary Technology program. I graduated in May 2011 and upon passing the national boards, earned my RVT license, also in 2011.

    Obviously, I love working with animals. I love living with them too! I have five dogs that range from very small to very big. They are my furry kiddos. I understand that our clients feel their pets are very much a part of their own family and I like to treat every patient as it they were part of my own. I look forward to every day at VAC Veterinary Medical Center. I enjoy our clients and our patients and hope to meet you soon.

    My name is Chelsea Herd. In May 2013, I graduated from Tulsa Community College's Veterinary Technology program and earned my Associates of Applied Sciences degree. After completing the National Veterinary Technology Boards Exam, I received my license of Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT).

    My favorite part about working veterinary medicine is being part of the team in helping a sick patient become well and healthy.

    I have six kiddos at home. Two mixed breed dogs: Cooper and Conrad; and four cats: Riley, Lucy, Andy, and Cole.

    I started working at VCA Veterinary Medical Center in December 2013 after working in an emergency veterinary clinic for almost a year. I am excited to be part of such a wonderful team and look forward to working with our patients and clients.

  • Veterinary Assistant

    Jennifer Weaver

    My name is Jennifer and I came to VCA Veterinary Medical Center in October 2004. Caring for animals has always been a passion of mine. I dreamed as a child that one day I could become a Veterinarian. I have come a long way and learned a lot in those many years, but one thing that you never expect is the love and compassion that owners exhibit for their pets. When starting at this clinic, I was employed as a kennel attendant, learning then that this clinic could provide clients with services that many other clinics could not, which was a major reason for seeking employment at VCA Veterinary Medical Center. Being able to offer this state of the art technology to our clients, allows me to learn more and better provide for the pet, therefore providing loving and compassionate care to the pet allows that loving bond between owner and pet to endure for many years to come. I have been able to over the years to acquire qualified knowledge to now provide care for the client and pet as a Veterinary Assistant. This more experienced role allows me more time for interaction with the client and their loved one, and with that role, I also have the privilege to provide certain forms of medical care for the owner and the pet. Over the year there have been are many pets that have walked through the clinic doors that I have found myself very fond of and have as much difficulty as their owners when the time comes for them to move on. I, myself, have many loved ones of my own which over the years each one has found a very special place in my heart. I am more than willing at any moment to share my wonderful experience and memories with those that are willing to hear. I look forward to caring for your loved one and getting to know you and your friendship with your pet.
