    I have been employed at Acadian Animal Hospital since the summer of 2012. I began working here as a kennel assistant and worked my way to veterinary technician. I assist in exam rooms with appointments and getting everything ready. I graduated from Penn Foster College with an associate degree as a Veterinary Technician. I also graduated from Nicholls State University with an associate degree in general studies. I got married to my high school sweetheart in 2014. I love animals and I have two dogs, Hershey and Mia. They are both spoiled rotten. I love my job and would not trade it for the world.
