Registered Veterinarian Technician/Client Care Representative
At 15 years of age, I did a high school co-op at Hillcrest and that experience really opened my eyes to how extraordinary veterinary medicine could be. After a few short months I had committed myself to becoming a veterinary technician and in 1998 I graduated from St. Lawrence College, wrote the registrar exam and was finally able to put the RVT credential behind my name. Friendly faces welcomed me back to Hillcrest in the fall of '98. I haven't looked back since. The first pet I had as a child was a calico kitten that we got at a yard sale. She was promptly named Lucky, as in "we sure are lucky that mom let us keep her!".
