I always loved animals after reading James Herriot "All Creatures Series". I was always interested in the field of veterinary medicine. In my first year of college I decided to become a veterinary technician and have been happily working in the field ever since. 

My goal is that every patient that I help, I treat as if they were my own pet. I give them some love and care that I give my own pets. 

I am a surgery vet technician at Milford Animal Hospital. I started here in 1986. I  also have been a long-term member of OAVT and CATA since I graduated from Vet Tech School in 1986. Every pet that comes in for surgery I give them the same care as if they were my own.

My mother and I share a home with 3 fur baies. Bastion and Serenity and my little kitty Sully. 

Besides my family and pets, my interests are cycling, gardening, weightlifting. I am also certified in spinning and an aquatic instructor. I currently hold the record in my weight and age division in squat and state in deadlift and squat. 

Always try to inspire and treat people and pets with respect and care that living things deserve.

I decided to work in the veterinary field because of the typical answer of my love for animals. I was pre-vet in college but after working in some offices I decided that I wanted to be one of the more hands on people. 

 

My goal is to make every visit as pleasant as possible for everyone involved (patient, client, and hospital personnel). 

 

I graduated with a Biology degree from NKU and Veterinary Technician degree from UC. I have a license in OH and KY where I am active in the KY Veterinary Technician Association even winning the Technician of the Year Award in 2014.

 

When not at work I keep busy with many volunteering jobs with the Aronoff Center, KY Symphony Orchestra, Biology Chapter of the NKU Alumni Association, WNKU and my church. I am also an organizer of the Northern KY Charity Dog Walkathon every April to benefit Pilot Dogs, Inc.

 

When I'm not working or volunteering I travel. Ask me about my latest trip. After losing my longtime companion, Clarence, I'm treating everyone else's pets as if they were mine for now.

As long as I can remember I have loved animals and knew I wanted to work with them. That combined with my love for science and math this job has been a perfect fit. 

My goal for every patient visit is that everyone gets the best care possible. I want the pet to be comfortable along with the pet parents and for them to know that they are in good caring hands. 

 

I earned my LVT in 2001 at Raymond Walters College and my Bachelor's Degree in Biology from the University of Cincinnati in 2004.

My wife Alice and I have 2 young boys. We also have 3 dogs and they keep us very busy!

Ever since I was 4 years old I knew I wanted to work with animals. My mind never changed, never had any other interest.  

 

My goal with every patient visit is to make the pet and the pet's owners to feel like they are at home. I want each pet to get the best possible care they can. 

I graduated and passed my Boards from UC Blue Ash in 2013.

 

My husband Bob and I have 4 children, 2 boys and 2 girls. They surely keep us on our toes and make life fun! We have 2 rescue cats, Slim and Ziggy.

I have always loved animals and knew that I wanted to work with them. I also really enjoy science and healthcare, so being a vet tech was the perfect way to combine both. 

I want every patient to get all the care they need, and to do so in a low stress, pain free way. 

I live with my husband and our 3 children. Plus Rick and Roger (the dogs), Diamond (the cat), Mickey (the bunny), and currently 13 chickens. 

A philosophy that I live by...To set the best example for my children by living a life with faith and love.

I became an RVT because of my lifelong love of all animals and science. 

 

With every patient visit I want to ensure that the client feels understood and satisfied. The patient receives the best care available and that care is given with respect and kindness. 

I share my life with my longtime boyfriend and his two wonderful children. Together we have our canine companion, Sookie, our tripod Pomeranian mix; one overly friendly cat, Anthony; and a rabbit named Molly. 

*In every relationship, take the time to see things from the other person's perspective. 

 

*Treat every animal as if it were your own. If your pet was out of your presence, you would want it to be treated with love, kindness and dignity.
