About the Book

This is my personal work and tool I use to help support me with my tasks and duties as a registered veterinary technician (RVT). Anyone who has worked directly with me knows about my pocket brain. I have shared and exchanged information in this small book to aid myself in patient care as well as support others who may have struggled and/or needed similar information to excel in their daily duties. The original book was created in 1999 but was lost. I restarted this book in 2006 as I felt the absence of this vital tool while on the floor in the clinical setting. Many have suggested that I turn it into a book so that more can benefit from it. It is a combination of things I have learned, researched, looked up, and experienced in my position as an RVT. I see this growing and adjusting with our role as veterinary technicians and assistants as a result of ongoing advances in care for our furry friends. This is just the start of volumes to come.

About the Author

I was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. I’ve always had a passion for animals and an interest in veterinary medicine. I enrolled in Western Career College (now Carrington College) in 1995 in San Leandro, California, and graduated in 1996. I took my state and national exam, and I have been licensed in California and passed the national examination (VTNE) since 1996. I have been managing (nursing manager and hospital manager) small animal practices (general and specialty) for twenty years. I completed two separate business management certification courses in 2017. I am VECCS RECOVER CPR certified. I am a mom of two humans and eight cats. I have coached youth through junior college basketball for a collective fourteen years. I have been a breast cancer walker of various groups for ten years to help the fight to find a cure. When I am not working, I enjoy reading, relaxing at the beach, traveling, spending time with family and friends, and watching movies! I love to learn and grow in my profession as a registered veterinary technician. I truly appreciate all the friends and extended family I have been blessed to get to know and develop relationships with during my ongoing career in the field!
