VANESSA

Veterinary Technician

Vanessa worked as a Veterinary Technician for 8 years. While working as a technician she also received her Diploma in Massage Therapy, a certificate in Body Wrapping and is also a Fear Free certified professional. She has 2 adult beautiful children – whom she LOVE’S so much! She was born and raised in West Palm Beach FL. She has moved up and down the east coast, but has settled here in Orlando, FL. She has had the pleasure of learning how to groom birds from an Avian Specialist as well as Learned some Microbiology skills. She also learned some Homeopathic techniques from a holistic Veterinarian as well.
She did not choose this path of work, it chose her from the young age of 6 years old. Her Grandfather hired a Guard dog trainer to train the family dogs. Vanessa watched and learned from that trainer and then practiced with the family dogs on all the commands and techniques. Her grandfather also taught her how to teach dogs to swim to the edge of the pool so they can get out. From that moment she knew she had a gift with animals, and this is when she fully trained dog’s off leash. Since then, the world of animal health and human health captivated her and it was the best experience she could share with her children while they were growing up. A true “One-Health” wonder! We are super excited to bring her on board with her vast amount of experience and bubbly personality!!
