Lisa joined Animal Emergency and Critical Care Center of Brevard (AECC) in 2015. Lisa is a veterinary technician here and is responsible for triaging patients, performing diagnostic testing, administering in-hospital treatments, and taking radiographs.
When asked why she chose to work in the veterinary field, Lisa replied that she “wanted to work in a field that she was interested to learn more about.” Lisa attended Animal Behavior College for education as a dog trainer and she is also a certified horseback riding instructor.
As much as veterinary medicine is “all about the animals”, Lisa knows that the animals depend on their people too. “Meeting people like herself who really love their animals and would do anything to help their pet get better,” is what Lisa considers one of the most rewarding aspects of her job.
To further her commitment in maintaining the human / animal bond, Lisa became a social worker in order to provide animal assisted therapy to those in need. Special needs children, veterans and at-risk youth have all benefitted from the animal assisted therapy Lisa provides. Lisa was also the founder of a non-profit horse rescue in New York where she rescued, rehabilitated and re-homed abandoned horses.
Lisa is the proud pet parent to Olive (A Chihuahua), Cot, Kya, and Fluff (Kitties), and Sam (A Quarter Horse).
