Whitney - Certified Veterinary Technician, Hospital Manager

She was impressed with the competent staff and high quality of medicine being practiced at the location, so made the official move to Alta Mesa in August. Her favorite thing about the veterinary industry is dentistry - there is nothing more rewarding than sending pets home with a clean mouth to give their owners lots of kisses!
