Emily E., Credentialed Veterinary Technician

RVT

I was first introduced to animal medicine in 2004 as an animal care volunteer at the Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito, where I aided in the rehabilitation of sick and injured seals and sea lions. Still very interested in animal care when I moved to San Diego in 2006, I got my first job in veterinary medicine as a veterinary assistant at a local general practice. After three years, I had fallen in love with veterinary nursing. I decided to take the next step and become a registered veterinary technician (RVT) through the Veterinary Allied Staff Education's accelerated alternate route program.  Always pushing myself to become more skilled and knowledgeable, I took a position in 2011 at a multi-specialty and emergency hospital, where I held positions in general patient care, ophthalmology, neurology, surgery and pharmacy. Also passionate about the environment, I decided to go back to school in 2014 to pursue my Bachelor of Science degree in Physical and Environmental Geography at San Diego State University. After graduating in 2016, I held an internship in water quality monitoring at The San Diego River Park Foundation, where I collected data on pollutants, water chemistry, invasive species and endangered species in and around the San Diego River and its tributaries. By 2017, I was missing animal medicine and returned to the field as an RVT at a local ophthalmology office. In August 2018, with great excitement, I joined the amazing VCA Eye Clinic for Animals team, where I have the great pleasure of providing top-notch patient care to beloved pets and their families!
