Rachel, Veterinary Technician

RVT

Even on my longest, most exhausting days, I am so happy I chose veterinary technician as my career choice . I graduated from Kirkwood Community College in 2016 and earned the title RVT. One of the things that appealed most to me about becoming a veterinary technician is that I get to do multiple jobs all wrapped up in one. I am a client educator, I get to assist with radiographs, anesthesia, dental cleanings, administering vaccines, filling prescriptions and so much more. No two days are ever the same.

I love helping owners help their pets live longer, healthier lives. I started my journey at VCA Edgewood Animal Hospital as an intern in 2015, and was so thankful they chose to make me a permanent member of their family after graduation.

I currently have 2 Chihuahuas at home, Bella and Jeeter, who keep me on my toes at all times with their shenanigans. While my job is not always a glamorous one, it is one that I absolutely love!
