While at VCA, Cindy worked at a variety of general, emergency, and specialty practices, including an exotic animal hospital.

After passing and receiving her VTS (ECC), she briefly worked in the CCU at the Colorado State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital. She returned to VCA WLA Animal Hospital as one of the Co-Technician Supervisors. Currently, she is involved with Continuing Education for the Veterinary Support Staff. She is in charge of training employees, veterinary assistant students, RVT students, and giving continuing education lectures. Her interests include anesthesia, CPR, emergency/critical care, exotics/zoomed, lecturing, nursing care, pain management, teaching, toxicology, transfusion medicine, trauma, and triage.
