Manager, Inventory and Senior Technician

Beth, our inventory manager, and senior technician, has been a part of our team since 1999. Beth grew up in the small town of Unionville, PA, southwest of Philadelphia. She lived on a small farm with many horses and other small animals. She has always known that she would end up in the veterinary field. After earning her degree in Veterinary Technology from Harcum College she completed an internship at the University of Pennsylvania in 1998.  Continuing her education she earned a certificate of completion for Veterinary Practice Management from St. Petersburg College in 2011.

For Beth, as expected the best part of working at the practice is being able to interact with the animals, but that is not all she gets to do. In terms of technical responsibilities, Beth has a special interest in anesthesia and surgery. She is also amazing at taking blood samples! She really enjoys the management and inventory end of her job as well, because as time goes by it gets a little harder to roll around on the floor with the big dogs!

Beth and her husband William have been married for 20+ years now.  They relocated to Florida in 1999.  With their two wonderful children Nicholas and Emma and 2 dogs, Rudder and Paisley, they all love to spend as much free time as possible out boating on the water.
