Leigh Ann is a Vetster Wellness Coach and licensed veterinary technician. This means they are not able to provide specific advice on a medical condition, diagnose or prescribe medication. If you feel you may require these services, please search for a Veterinarian instead. About appointment types.
I have 15 years of experience in a variety of areas in veterinary medicine, including small animals, exotics, alternative medicine, behaviour and education. I graduated as an Animal Health Technician in 2009 and I still love what I do.
Throughout my career, I have prided myself on my technical skills but also my customer service and phone skills. I have always tried to treat clients/patients how I would want to be treated in their situation and patient care has always been of utmost importance to me. I have experience communicating with a diverse client base, under all kinds of circumstances, including very emotional ones. This was especially true while running my own business, my focus was geriatric pet care, where emotions run high.
Though I had stepped away from clinical work, coming back into a setting as an instructor for a College, has reminded me how much I love being a vet tech. Now through Vetster, I have a way to reach more people directly. I look forward to helping as many pets and owners as possible!
