Rachel Wright

Name

Rachel Wright

Service

Small Animal Community Practice

What are your hobbies?

Hanging out at home with my dogs and cats watching old movies or reading a good book. 

Do you have any pets?

2 Dachshunds (Mayer and Matilda) and 3 Cats (Sonora, Selleck and Pacino)

Why did you want to become a Veterinary Technician?

I love animals and I love being a part of helping them feel better when they are sick or injured so it seemed like a good career path for me to take.

Why did you choose this specific specialty?

I enjoy seeing healthy pets but also enjoy being a part of helping sick and injured pets get well again.  We get to see a good mixture of cases in the SACP. 

What is your favorite part about your job?

Getting to work with and help teach the 4th year veterinary students and also the variety of cases we see in the SACP

What advice do you have for others who are wanting to become a Vet Tech?

Get a job or volunteer at a veterinary hospital in your area to get experience and learn what a veterinary technician does in a practice every day.  I worked at a veterinary clinic for a year before going on to college and it really helped me to decide that this is the career path I wanted to take.
