Charlene 

Certified Veterinary Technician

I graduated from the Minnesota School of Business. I own two cats named “Luna” and “Spazz”, and one dog, which is a Boxer/Pitbull named “Buddy”. I enjoy playing Texas Hold ‘Em, Dog Grooming, and spending time with my friends and family. I really love working with animals and people. I love working with Animal Control, reconnecting animals with their owners and finding homes for the animals that never really had one. I also love working with the doctors and staff, we are a close-knit family, we work well together and help each other. Working with the animals and clients on a daily basis makes me very glad the I chose this field to work in.


Robert 

Veterinary Technician

I have my Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from St. Cloud State University. I have a Shih Tzu named “Tabitha”, and a Terrier mix named “Pendle“. When I am not working I enjoy reading and attending all activities, expos, humane society events, watching movies, or anything involving animals. This job is interesting because of the variety of work - from talking with people about their pets, to doing lab work, taking radiographs and of course working with the dogs and cats themselves. It is a rewarding job because I am working with the clients and their pets and (hopefully) helping enhance the human-animal bond that exists.


Lori 

Veterinary Technician

I attended Irondale high school, then continued my education at North Hennepin Technical College. I have my dog Logan and three cats Orangy, Meezy, and Kiki. Then I also have three horses Johnny, Cash, and Dash. Outside of work I love to go horseback riding. I enjoy caring for animals and that is why I am a vet tech, to help animals feel better. 



Gina 
Veterinary Technician

I am attending Rasmussen for Information Technology, specifically as a Network Administrator. I have a cat named “Mr. Alfred Hitchcock”, along with two ferrets, “Joseph Franklin” and “Sebastian Allen”. I enjoy arts, crafts, fishing, hiking/waking, camping, baking, and just spending time with my two kids. I have always loved animals, and in my youth I rescued numerous animals; this is when I knew I wanted to work in the veterinary field. When I began working in the kennels at the Brighton Veterinary Hospital and saw what the technicians did, I knew I wanted to do the same. I was later asked by Dr. Hedges to train as a technician, and a dream had come true for me. Of course, I love working with the animals and always thought that would be the only reward, but after being here over 10 years I realized that the joy of helping our clients is just as rewarding. No other job could bring me the joy, confidence or fulfillment that working here does.



Melissa 
Certified Veterinary Technician

I graduated from the Minnesota School of Business with an A.A.S degree in Veterinary Technology. I like spending time with my three cats, “Spock”, “Miss Mauw” and “Fred”. I also like spending time with my family and friends, listening to music, swimming, outdoor activities, drinking coffee, and taking my husband’s dog (Boscoe) to the dog park. I’ve always had a passion for animals ever since I was a child and always knew I wanted to work with them. I enjoy seeing the different animal-human bonds, and I’m glad that I can make a difference in helping people take proper care of the animals that mean so much to them.

Certified Veterinary Technician

I graduated from Globe University in Woodbury in 2007, I have a Bachelors of Science Degree. I have one dog named Shandy and two tabby cats. Outside of work I like to hang out with my soon to be husband Ryan as well as friends and family. When I was in second grade I became interested in this job, I loved working with and spending time with animals. To me each day is a new experience and an opportunity to learn something new. I am very rewarded here being able to help clients and their animals as well as  the ability to teach people preventative care. I also enjoy seeing the new puppies and kittens come in while meeting new people, building relationships.

I love this job because I grew up around animals and have wanted to help them ever since. I get satisfaction in seeing the clients leave happy after we help their pet as well as working with people who have the same love for animals.


Taylor 
Groomer

I attended Paragon School of Pet Grooming. The reason I am excited about my position at the Brighton Veterinary Hospital is to gain more hands on skills in the area of grooming as well as learning to work in a new environment. Since working here, I have loved getting to know the staff, as well as all of the pets I get to work with and meet. I have multiple pets of my own  a dog, ferret, and fish. Some of my hobbies outside of work are crocheting and going to the dog park.
