Lisa, Animal Nurse
Growing up, Lisa spent more time nursing sick animals than she did playing with friends. While her friends were off playing doctor/nurse, she was playing veterinarian. She would always bring home strays to feed them, nurse baby birds, and she helped numerous turtles across the road. She remembers riding her bike 5 miles one way to help the local horse farm clean stalls. She didn’t get to ride them, but being around them was joy enough for her. Her family always had a variety of pets, and she knew she wanted a career that involved working with animals. She started as a veterinary technician in 1999 and joined the team at Meadowlawn in 2003. According to Lisa, working as a technician is one of the most rewarding jobs anyone could have. She is proud to be a part of the caring staff at the hospital and enjoys providing quality care to pets and their owners. Helping animals has always been a part of who she is, and she enjoys her job every day. She doesn’t view her job as a burden of dealing with losing pets on a daily basis but as a privilege to be a part of the patients’ lives.
