Rebecca has lived all over Southeast Wisconsin, including West Milwaukee, Greenfield, Franklin, Milwaukee, and Muskego before attending college in Madison. Although she grew up with numerous pets including: cats, geckos, snakes, love birds, turtles, a tortoise, fish, and a bearded dragon, she didn’t realize the connection she had with animals until a career path field trip in high school.
After graduating from high school, she completed a Veterinary Technician Associates Degree. Following several summer internships she joined our clinic in 2012. She also passed her exams and became a Certified Veterinary Technician in 2012. What she enjoys most about her job as a CVT is watching pets grow, and being able to aid in providing pets with the best quality of life possible. It brings her a special sense of achievement to be able to take part in solving a medical problem and helping to make a sick pet feel better.
Rebecca loves to camp and travel. She recently took a road trip to Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado where she was able to hike some amazing trails. She, along with her husband, José, currently live with a cat named Quil. Quil loves to cuddle or solve food puzzles, and is always there to greet Rebecca when she comes home. Rebecca fondly remembers when Quil was found on a farm, with a permanent kink in his tail and so tiny he could fit in the palm of her hand.
