I also have a 6 year old Senegal Parrot named Sora who has a fan following here at the Hospital! On my chill days I love playing video games, painting, and having lazy days with my Husband, who is also in the animal field. We live a low profile cozy life and try to keep it that way! I love working with animals and it's something that will never change. My passion for helping your fur babies and assisting the Doctors and fellow technicians is the best thing I can ask for and provides me with fulfilment. 


Karen

Veterinary Technician & Pharmacy/Lab Technician

I have been in the veterinary field for about 10 years now.  I love the work and I really love animals.  I was a dog handler for about 5 years before I got into the medical side and that job was what got me interested in being a vet tech.  I’ve had dogs my whole life and couple of years ago adopted a rescue cat.  I love being able to help a dog or a cat that comes in not feeling well and we are able to diagnose and treat that animal.  When I call the owner a few days after the visit and the pet is and doing so much better, there is no greater feeling.


Julie

Discovering my passion for animals early in life, I began gaining knowledge for them by volunteering in animal rehabilitation at the Natural History Museum in Cleveland, OH.

After graduating from Ohio University, I relocated to South Florida and began my career as a Veterinary Technician in 2007. I am beyond grateful to be doing what I love; helping animals and their owners, and to be working with such an amazing team of doctors and nurses. In my spare time, I enjoy painting, gardening, outdoor activities, and hanging out with my four legged children – Julius, Palmer, Mama, Tuxedo and Becks.

Jordan

Kennel Technician

Ever since I was six years old I’ve always had a huge passion for animals, especially cats. One time I saved a baby bird that fell out of it's nest, when taking it to the animal hospital I was inspired by how doctors cared for it and wanted to be like them. So, my goal is to become a member of the ASPCA and help animals in need of a second chance! I have a cat name Kenya, on my free time I love to draw, play video games and running in the park.
