Ingrid - Client Care Specialist

Why I Work in Veterinary Medicine:

I was a journalist for almost 20 years, so a move to veterinary medicine may seem like a strange one. But after many years of working in an industry that often exposes the worst in people the chance to help animals and the people who love them was exactly what I was looking for. And as a pet owner myself, I know how scary it is when one of them gets sick. Having a friendly, empathetic person greet me at the animal hospital and walk me through the process is so important to me. Being that person to other pet owners is awesome.

Erica - Certified Veterinary Technician

Why I Work in Veterinary Medicine:

I have loved and wanted to help animals as long as I can remember. I was always bringing home strays and volunteering at local shelters so becoming a veterinarian after highschool seemed like the natural next step for me. After attending Bel-Rea however,I discovered that being a hands-on advocate for furry family members and a personal assistant to the veterinarian instead was where I belonged and thrived.

Nurturing the bond between humans and animals through a close partnership between doctor, technician, patient and owner is one of the most rewarding experiences of veterinary medicine. Whether it is a typical interaction with a client picking up meds, an intense surgery, comforting a patient who is scared or holding an owner's hand as they say goodbye, each experience brings something new to be cherished and learned from. I have never been more content in a career and the fact that each new day is different from the last is part of what makes my job so amazing. I hope to continue to be a part of it for many years to come.

Melanie - Veterinary Technician

Why I Work in Veterinary Medicine:

There are a few things I love about my job in the veterinary field. I love joking around with my co-workers and seeing new & interesting cases. I like the challenge of treating difficult, uneasy patients; trying to “communicate” with them (for lack of a better term) & instill calmness in them. I love it when it works!

Jordan - Certified Veterinary Technician

Why I Work in Veterinary Medicine:

I had a hard time deciding what career path I wanted to follow out of high school. I've wanted to do a myriad of things throughout my life. However, the one constant has always been animals. I toyed with the idea of being a vet when I was young, but decided against it, because I have no stomach for blood. Yet, when I started looking at college options, I kept finding myself looking into veterinary education. So, I decided to go to be a veterinary technician and see how I felt about it. Immediately I knew I had made the right decision and I threw myself into it completely. I know beyond a doubt that helping animals is where my heart lies and where my career path will take me. The ability to be the voice for these selfless, wonderful creatures is what drives me every day. I am grateful to help improve and save lives every day.

Kate - Veterinary Technician

Why I Work in Veterinary Medicine:

As a little girl in the mountains I was absolutely obsessed with animals; dogs, cats, snakes, horses, cattle, pigs, birds, wildlife, pretty much anything I could catch or spend time watching. When I started my first job at 15 as a horse wrangler just south of Rocky Mountain National Park, I loved helping the vet with the check-ups and the farrier with the shoeing. Since that was just a summer job, I got a full time job at a local shelter and just "clicked" with the vet tech in charge of all of the shelter animals’ health. Through her, I learned to love a challenge; a growly dog, feral cats, as well as the animals just too stressed and scared to eat. We would spend hours with the animals, just to reassure them everything was ok and that they were loved. I’ve always had a "knack" for understanding animal behavior and as I got more comfortable with the medical side of things, I realized that looking through the eyes of the pet was incredibly undervalued. Unde rstanding how a pet will react and why a pet reacts the way they do are two very different things. Through a job at a local clinic I got the opportunity to strengthen my skills as a veterinary assistant and then as a surgery tech, helping creatures with no voice and the inability to help themselves.
