Victoria, Veterinary Technician

I am the proud pet parent to a 9 yr old German shepherd/boxer mix, Tinsel & a Sun Conure named LD. Due to my brother & mother’s allergies growing up, I wasn’t able to have pets most of my childhood…I was always the kid begging for a dog on Christmas morning. Flash forward 10/15 years and I now had my own dog which I knew very little about. After completing my Associates degree in Applied Science, I was having a hard time finding work that fit my personality and needs. I spotted an ad for a receptionist at an animal hospital & I realized what great opportunity to learn more about pet health, and try a role I had never been in. While working at my first animal hospital I met Dr. Schnitker and admired her natural poise with animals and work ethic – this left a lasting impression. When I heard she was in the process of opening a new location with Companion, I knew I had to apply. Working for Companion has introduced me to a whole new side of veterinary practice. Being part of a team opening a new location has been really exciting and challenging for my role as a CSR. I love getting to meet new clients and their beloved companions.
