As a part-time veterinary technician, Patrick is responsible for a variety of tasks including triaging incoming emergency patients, filling and administrating medicine, as well as assisting the doctors in the exam rooms. He believes that the most rewarding feeling is knowing that all the hard work he puts in during a day made a difference in an animal’s health and well being.

Patrick has many years experience working in zoos and aquariums. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in zoo science from Delaware Valley College. In addition to his work here at AECC, Patrick works at the Brevard Zoo caring for fish, stingrays, reptiles and parrots.

Although he loves working with animals, Patrick has not had the chance to welcome any pets into his home but he hopes to soon!
