Ashley earned her vet tech certification through St. Petersburg College, where she also received a Certification of Excellence in anesthesia.

Ashley’s favorite aspects of her job include having a great team to work with, interacting with her patients, and giving pet owners the help they need to care for their companions. It is also rewarding to be able to use her knowledge to keep pets healthy and put her best effort into healing sick or injured pets. She loves helping animals and people live happy, healthy lives. Ashley wouldn’t trade her job for anything!

For Jaime, being a vet tech runs in the family–her mom and sister are both CVTs. She started working in the veterinary field when she was a volunteer kennel technician in high school, and she was eventually hired on not long after. From there, Jaime worked her way up to reception, then assistant, then technician, all the way up to lead surgery technician. Jaime loves the veterinary profession because she gets to build relationships with patients and clients, and learn something new every day. At home, she has two mixed breed dogs, Arthur and Norman, and a domestic shorthair cat named Alfie. In her free time, Jaime enjoys cooking, and going hiking with her dogs.
