I’ve been working at animal hospitals since I was 19.I moved to New Jersey 6 years ago from Arizona. I have grown in the field from kennel work, then reception and now am currently a veterinary technician in New Jersey. I have my Associates degree in Science and am currently working on my Bachelor’s degree at Rutgers University in Ecology, Evolution and Natural Resources.
