  • Technician Supervisor

    Jennifer Wildes

    I am a veterinary technician, assisting in anything from routine checks to surgery. I’ve been doing this for just about 12 years. Given my line of work and now Technician Supervisor title, one can obviously come to the conclusion that I’m a passionate animal lover and advocate!

    So, let’s just cut to the part where I tell you a little bit about my feline friends… I have 3 cats, Anthony, Buckwheat, and Nicholas. As an owner, I have first hand experience with thyroid, heart, urinary issues as well as many other conditions. I know the challenges and emotions associated with caring for our feline friends.

    I nursed and bottle fed my previous cat, Goliath, from a tiny kitten, who grew into a cat that showed his appreciation by being the friendliest kitty there was!

    My other cat, Anthony, was surrendered with severe trauma to his back leg that required amputation. I fell in love with him, adopted him, and helped him to get the care he needed to survive. He is the sweetest most affectionate creature, and quite handsome, I might add!

    Despite their seemingly independent attitudes, no two cats are the same, and all deserve special care and attention.

    Audra Floury
    Veterinary Tech School: Becker Colllege

    My love for animals began as a child and would carry me to a job as a dairy farmer. From there I would continue my love of animals by attending Becker College and receiving my technician degree. I have worked for VCA Wickaboag since June of 1994 and I have acquired much knowledge and many skills during my career here. It is my goal to utilize those skills and knowledge to better the health and well being of all of the patients in my care. I share my life with three cats: Timothy, Peter, and the three legged cat Alice.

    Ashley Stevens
    Veterinary Tech School: Becker College

    Ashley's passion for animals began at a very young age growing up on a dairy farm.  Over the years she had numerous pets from dogs and cats to cows, horses, chickens, and rabbits.  At 5 years old she knew she wanted to work with animals, she just wasn't sure what exactly she wanted to do yet.  Ashley attended Becker College and graduated in May 2013 with a Bachelor's Degree in Veterinary Science.  She then went on to pass her certification test in November 2013 and became a Certified Veterinary Technician (CVT).  She continues to put a lot of thought into eventually attending veterinary school and receiving her doctorate degree in veterinary medicine.  She started working at VCA Wickaboag in 2010 while still in school and continues to work here today.  Ashley spends most of her spare time at the family farm when not working at VCA Wickaboag.  While there, she enjoys taking a lot of photos of her cats Cooper and Oliver and picking clover for her rabbits Millicent, Hennessey, and Cookie Dough.  At home, she shares her space with her energetic dog Bullet and her once stray cat Chester.
