    "I'm grateful to work with Amanda. Her positive attitude, proactive and helpful approach, and resourceful solutions make each day working in the VTH better. She does a wonderful job teaching students and helps them develop as DVMs in many ways. Her patient care and client communication are what we all strive for in providing the best care."

    "Missy is a highly dedicated, skilled, and invaluable member of the anesthesia team. She readily and patiently shares her knowledge with peers and students, helping build everyone's skillset and confidence. She is always willing to help others or give them opportunities to understand a topic, master a skill, and can even assist in fixing broken equipment!".
  • Jenny Robinson
    "Jenny gives 100% effort into everything that she does. The AP knowledge and support she provides to the departmental staff and management is superb. Jenny has an extraordinary work ethic and is a true team player, she is an invaluable member of the Business Office team. I can think of no one more deserving to be recognized for their dedication, hard work, and support to the VTH hospital."

She is always willing to step in and help when needed, and not only is she an asset to have because of her technical skills, but is also amazing at helping teach our rotating veterinary students."
