Ash (Certified Veterinary Technician)
I am originally from Michigan, where I started my veterinary career as a kennel aide. After graduating school as a CVT, I worked in emergency medicine for 4 years. When my wife and I moved to Portland in 2015, I started at Northwest Neighborhood Veterinary Hospital, and left behind overnight shifts and snowy weather. Now, I would never go back. I love the environment and energy here at NWNVH. My co-workers never fail to make my day. Our patients are endlessly entertaining as well. Outside of work, I try to enjoy all Oregon has to offer. It has been a wonderland for hiking, camping, and trying new foods. My wife and I share our home with one crazy-fun and frustrating Australian Shepherd, Reese, and Dixie, a pit-mix who has the most kind and gentle soul.
