Penny, CVT, Anesthesia Technician

Penny graduated from Western Career College in California in 2002 and completed externships at an exotic specialty clinic, orthopedic practice, and a surgical team at Bay Area Veterinary Specialists. While in California, Penny volunteered for a cat rescue group and practiced at a general medicine hospital in the Bay Area, where she was mainly a dental technician and worked with a Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon.

In 2004, Penny moved to the suburbs outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She started an online veterinary program through St Petersburg College in Florida to help her take the VTNE (Veterinary Technician National Exam). Since earning her Bachelor’s degree and becoming a CVT, Penny has worked at a general practice in Pennsylvania for ten years, where she excelled in emergency, surgery, anesthesia, phlebotomy, and laboratory skills.

Later, she moved to Lowell, MA, and joined the Angell West team, where she hopes to one day specialize in Anesthesia or Critical Care and Emergency. She looks forward to a fast-paced environment conducive to learning more advanced skills and being able to help with the most critical patients.
