Hi! I’m Nicki. I am a registered veterinary technician. I graduated in 2008 with an applied associate’s degree in Veterinary Technology. I have been involved in some facet of veterinary medicine for almost 10 years as an assistant, student, technician, and management. I joined the Animal Skin, Ear, and Allergy team in October 2016. I love working with older animals, and helping their owners address their special needs. Everyone loves puppies (including myself – how can you not?!?), but I especially love our “older puppies.” I think a greying face is adorable! also enjoy assisting in surgery, educating on the importance of heartworm prevention (just ask me!), and applying my years of experience to the well-being of patients at the Animal Skin, Ear and Allergy Clinic. My husband and I have a Lab mix named Ginger, and a domestic long haired cat named Push Pop. They are my pride and joy; I’d almost consider them my children. To those who know me well – I do. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, biking, and relaxing with my family and friends.
