Gray and Allie

Gray is excited to join the team at District Veterinary Hospital as a licensed veterinary technician. She has several years’ experience in the animal care field, working mostly in dog and cat veterinary practices, although she has also spent some time providing medical care to livestock and exotic pets and working in dog daycares.

In her previous positions, she has enjoyed leading her colleagues and seeking out opportunities to learn from each new case, as well as provide comfort and care to pets and their owners. She is especially interested in pain management in animals, educating and assisting clients, pharmacology, and veterinary lab sciences. Her passion for pathology and public health have afforded her the rewarding opportunities to intern in parasitology research and work as a laboratory technician alongside a veterinary clinical pathologist. She is currently in the process of continuing on to a bachelor’s degree in veterinary technology to further advance her knowledge of clinical care and hospital management.

She lives locally in the city with her fiancé and her beloved pet rats. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family, reading, and visiting lighthouses.
