During my junior and senior years of high school I worked at Commerce Veterinary Hospital as a Veterinary Technician Assistant through the work based learning program of Commerce High School. When I graduated high school I was hired at Commerce Vet as a Veterinary Technician in May of 2014. While working at Commerce Vet I learned to place catheters, give fluids, monitor heart rate, run blood work, clean and autoclave tools used for surgery, and assist the doctors in any way possible.
I began working at Puppy Le Pew as a bather training to become a groomer. I went through a rigorous 3 month training session until becoming a full groomer. I was able to work by myself bathing, grooming, answering phones, making appointments, and checking clients in and out of the business.
I worked as a kennel tech from September 2015 to August 2016. I took care of the animals, answered phones, and checked clients in and out, also taking payments in person and over the phone. From August 2016 to February 2017 I groomed 8-10 dogs daily. Late February 2017 I became the Manager, I managed staff, wrote paychecks, hired employees, checked clients in and out, handled any problems that arose, placed orders for supplies, managed the website and social media pages, built strong relationships with clients by keeping them happy and their pets well taken care of, and served as the face of the business by greeting all clients in person and by phone in a friendly, professional, and willing-to-help manner.
