I have been a licensed veterinary technician since 2009. While in school, I had the opportunity to be one of the first “first year” students to complete a clinical rotation at a local emergency veterinary hospital. It was there that I discovered my passion for emergency and critical care medicine. My passion for quality nursing care led me to work at some of the largest veterinary hospitals in San Francisco, Seattle, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas. I have worked with many board certified veterinarians in many different aspects of veterinary medicine and over the years, I have had the pleasure of training many veterinary technicians and assistants. There is no certification for this, however I considered myself to be a certified chihuahua whisperer.
