Getting to Know Us

I’d like to introduce one of our newest staff members, April, who is currently finishing up her degree in Veterinary Technology from Miami-Jacobs Career College. April started with us in June of 2011. She’d been looking for a new career after being laid off during the economic downturn.  A love of animals led her back to college to earn a degree in Veterinary Technology. Of course an animal lover has to have pets of her own, and April currently lives with her six dogs, two cats and also a duck, chickens and bunny.

April has been a wonderful addition to our staff, and says two of her favorite things are helping with surgery and dentistry. Here’s what April had to say about joining us.

I started working at Troy Animal Hospital last June, while finishing my degree at school in veterinary technology. Since then I have been able to apply my skills I have learned while going to school, in many ways. I have always enjoyed being around animals, and getting to help them feel better when they are sick and come into the clinic is a very rewarding experience. The team here at Troy Animal Hospital is very dedicated to giving the best quality care to every pet that walks through the door. It is a very rewarding experience to get to work with such a great team, and I can say that what I didn’t learn in school I have been able to learn here from the other staff members and their experience. I will be graduating from school this spring, and I feel that what I have learned from attending classes and from working has greatly prepared me for this career. I enjoy getting up and coming to work each day and I wouldn’t trade this job for any other.

We at Troy Animal Hospital look forward to getting to know you and your pet and hope that you get to know us as well!
