Dena always wanted to go into the field of veterinary medicine. As a child, she tried to diagnose and “cure” her neighbors’ and family members’ pets —even when they were healthy. Dena takes her job very seriously, dedicating herself to increasing her knowledge and skills through training and observation.
Dena takes every opportunity to learn from her co-workers, both formally and informally, and she is grateful for the resources VSC has provided to help her continue her education as she became certified in internal medicine. By consulting specialists from other areas within the practice, Dena maintains a holistic view of her patients, even as she specializes in the field of internal medicine.
“This little Boston Terrier, Miles, came in with a really bad G.I. condition, and we’ve been treating him. Now, not only is he feeling better, but he’s also part of an animal rescue organization—he has his own book. We helped him, and now he’s helping others.”
“VSC is a big place, and there are a lot of things going on, but we have really good training for everyone who comes in. I think it’s really important to be open to learning.”
