Veterinary Technician, Lead Surgical Technician
After her time in the United States Air Force, Amanda worked security at a hospital and soon decided to try her hand in the world of human healthcare. But after some time, she realized that her heart wasn’t truly in it. That’s when Amanda realized something: she could satisfy her interests in the medical world while spending time around pets every day by working in veterinary care! She hasn’t looked back since, and is now a Licensed Veterinary Technician and serves as Community Animal Hospital’s Lead Surgical Technician.
Amanda is originally from the Seattle, Washington area. After her veterinary schooling was complete, she launched her Tech career at a corporate practice, where she would help pets and owners for the next six and a half years. When the time came to search for another opportunity and expand her skillset even further, Amanda came across an opening here at Community Animal Hospital. She joined the clinic family in the summer of 2017, and couldn’t be happier to serve the area’s pets and animal parents alongside a team of animal-lovers just like herself.
As a Tech, Amanda loves performing dental cleanings, repairing abscesses and wounds, and examining samples under the microscope. Most of all, she loves to communicate directly with pet owners and help them to choose the best products, services, and care techniques for their beloved companions.
Amanda enjoys cooking, camping, reading—she’s a huge Harry Potter fan—and watching her favorite movies and television shows in her time away from work. At home, she has one cat: a Maine Coon named Pigwidgeon who is constantly worried he might starve and always demands food.
