Cassidi, Veterinary AssistantNicole's Tortoise

I began working in the veterinary field in high school as a kennel assistant. I've had other jobs since then, but somehow I always end up back working with animals. I have always loved animals, but my mom denied me the joy of owning a pet for many years. I finally convinced her to let me get a cat on the condition that he stays outside to control the mouse population. My sweet hunter, Kitty, still lives at home with my family, but I try to visit as often as I can.

I came to Bellingham in 2007 to attend Western Washington University and recently graduated with my bachelors in Environmental Science. I am still undecided about what I want to do with my life, but veterinary school and graduate school are still possible options. I got my job at Mountain Veterinary Hospital because of a recommendation I received from a good friend and former employee. She was headed off to veterinary school and I was lucky enough to get hired. The environment at Mountain Veterinary Hospital is great and I am thankful for the opportunity I have been given to work with such awesome co-workers and further increase my knowledge of veterinary medicine. This job has only fueled my desire to make working with animals a career. In addition to my position as a veterinary assistant, I also do a fair amount of pet sitting for clients and friends. I’m also a live-in “dog-nanny” for three rambunctious, but lovable dogs.

In my free time I volunteer at the Northwest Wildlife Rehabilitation Center where I get the chance to work with all kinds of cool animals. I would have to say that the baby opossums are my favorite. I also enjoy hiking, country music, Disney movie, Starbucks coffee to fuel my caffeine addiction, and of course the occasional Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings movie marathon. Back
