The role of our veterinary assistants is a combination of many things. It can be anything from assisting the doctor in appointments, checking in drop offs, aiding the technician during surgery, or even walking your dog. They will make your visit as comfortable as possible for you and your pet.
Hanging Rock Animal Hospital is lucky enough to employ several assistants enrolled in veterinary technician licensure programs!
Ashley has worked at Hanging Rock since 2008. She is currently in school in order to become a Licensed Veterinary Technician. She has 4 dogs and 2 cats; all but one of which were Hanging Rock Rescues. Reese a Chocolate Lab, Pepper a Shepherd mix, Krikit a Lab mix, and Brennan a Pittbull mix all enjoy the company of Posse and Vinny the Domestic Shorthairs. She married her high school sweetheart, and they have been together since 2005. She loves working with all kinds of animals and is potentially considering attending Vet School in the future.
