Clinic Receptionist​​​​​​​

I moved here from South Carolina. I love meeting new people and hearing their different backgrounds and stories. I attended 2 years of university schooling and then decided to take time off to explore career options, at which point I moved to Colorado and became a receptionist here to gain experience in the veterinary field. I plan to go back to school to become a certified veterinary technician in the next few years. As a Receptionist I meet & greet clients and their pets. I love greeting everyone and getting to know their stories, as well as seeing everyone's furry family members' progress. I have a dog and a cat. Pongo is almost 3 yrs old, I don't know much of his background except that he was an outdoor dog from AZ. His favorite things to do are playing, chewing on things he shouldn't, and giving love to everyone who passes by. Junifer Kitty is 2 years old and came from an abandoned house with ~30 other cats. She's shy to new people but loves anyone who will scratch her face. She loves the outdoors and jumping and climbing.
