It's National Veterinary Technicians Week! Today’s featured tech is Elyse! Elyse has been with River Road Animal Hospital for one year. Elyse says “I’ve loved working with animals my whole life.” She started with us as a kennel assistant and decided to make the leap and start tech school!

When Elyse isn’t working, she enjoys spending her free time traveling, horseback riding, and exploring the great outdoors.

We asked Elyse if she had to describe herself as an animal what would it be and why. She says that she would probably be a pig. She says she likes taking it easy, lounging, and eating, but like a pig she is extremely smart and clever when she wants to be!

Thank you, Elyse, for everything you do! #vettechweek
