Veterinary Technician

Hello, my name is Amanda. I am a Veterinary Technician with almost 20 years of experience in the Veterinary field. I have two rescue chuggles (chihuahua/pug/beagle) that keep my family and I on the go. They are full of energy, and those beagle noses are always trying to get into trouble. When I am not working, I enjoy traveling, golfing, concerts, boating, and family/friend game nights. I believe that every day is a blessing.
