Karla Certified Veterinary Technician - Parkway Vet Hospital

Certified Veterinary Technician

With The Parkway Veterinary Hospital since 2008

My contribution to The Parkway Veterinary Hospital is to perform the duties of a CVT. I began my career in New York, working as an animal care taker in a small animal hospital. I returned to Oregon in 2003 to attend the PCC Veterinary Technician school, where I became certified in 2005. I have 13yrs of experience in the veterinary field. My schooling and experience has trained me in anesthesia, dental prophylaxis, nursing care, phlebotomy, radiography, laboratory procedures, pain management, surgical assisting and medical record keeping.

Education/Training: Certification 2005. 13 yrs additional experience working in veterinary hospitals.

Hobbies/pets/family: I purchased my first home 2 years ago and it has become my newest hobby. I’m looking forward to many hours of gardening, landscaping and remodeling this summer. In my free time I enjoy painting and visiting my family on their 112 acre hazelnut farm in McMinnville. I am recently engaged and planning a 2014 summer wedding.

My favorite thing about Parkway Vet is the compassion that our staff has for its patients and their owners, as well as each other. This is a very loving hospital and I feel privileged to come to work everyday.
