When Vicki first started her career as a Veterinary Technician, she knew that shelter medicine was not for her.  Or at least she thought she knew.  Since graduation in 2005 she worked mainly in small animal general practice along with small stint in equine medicine at a specialty practice in Ohio.  In 2012, a friend who ran a rescue asked if she would vaccinate several kittens for her.  Since then it has been a downhill slide into Shelter Medicine, which she deems the most rewarding part of her career so far!  Aside from her LVT work, Vicki enjoys her country home life, trail riding with her paint draft horse, Bailey, and loving up on her two donkeys, 2 cats, and 1 dog.  She and her husband enjoy traveling, are Disney lovers, and love family.
