Hi there everyone! A little about me. I have been a Veterinary technician since the 70’s, but I was licensed in Oregon then California later on.
I worked for James H. Van Gerpen here in Sonora for 17 yrs then for Tomi Sue Henderson when she bought the practice in 1995. I lost my career overnight due to a long standing work injury that unraveled my spine in 2000.
I am now teaching working Vet Techs who are working toward their 300 hours of education to sit for the VTNE (Veternary Techician National Exam) and the California VT state exam. I love every minute of it.
I also answered questions on AllExperts.com for ten years and really enjoy that so I thought I would open that up to others.
I love animals and have been very close to our brethren of the earth since I was born. I truly feel I was born to work with animals and help them heal. I feel a great stewardship to all animals and am first and foremost an animal and pet advocate. What the means is that I do what is right for the pet, not the owner. It is a fine line to tread on and all vet techs are sworn to do this.
This website is exactly for that- to educate the Pet Owner to be the BEST Pet Owner they can be. You can also find me on facebook at VetTechsforClientEducation.
I also do animal portraits, artwork of all kinds and have many other hobbies. Some of those are hockey, fine dining, wine tasting, walking with my dog and fly fishing. I have two grown kids that are doing great.
I also own Indigo Moon Arts here in Sonora, which is a small web design business. You can find my site at www.indigomoonarts.com
