Practice Manager/Senior Technician
Our Practice Manager, Liz, has always known she was meant to work with animals. She was riding horses before she learned to walk, and bringing home every injured or stray creature that crossed her path. From bottle-raising litters of orphaned puppies and kittens to rehabilitating injured opossums, squirrels and raccoons, Liz is happiest when surrounded by furry friends of all kinds. She and her husband, Bruce, have a houseful of pets and have passed on their love of animals to their four children and six (so far) grandsons. Liz has worked in the veterinary field since 1999, and has been part of the Pet Vet team since 2008.
