I have been working in the field of veterinary medicine since 1991. I started working at PVVH in 1994 assisting in the surgery ward while attending the animal sciences program at Holyoke Community College. I graduated with honors and became a certified veterinary technician in 1996. Since then, I have gained experience in all areas of the hospital – surgery ward, kennel, reception, office manager, and general assistant.
Outside of the field of veterinary medicine I have spent several years as an assistant chef, the manager of a small store, and the office manager and finance manager of a conference center. I am currently also working as the Financial Administrator of a small town in Franklin County; District Clerk for a local Water District; and bookkeeper for a company specializing in “homestyle” boarding and daycare for dogs. I also do bookkeeping and tax preparation on the side.
