Em Roy, Head RVT

I was introduced to the idea of becoming a veterinary technician when I was in highschool. I wanted a job that could combine animals, science and was physically active. Once I learned more about Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT) career and the responsibilities that it encompassed, I knew that I wanted to pursue this career. It was exciting to be able to to help develop and work with like-minded people while making a difference in a multitude of animals’ lives. Earning my RVT status gave me a license to practice my area of veterinary medicine with a caliber of professionals and clients that isn’t offered for an unlicensed veterinary technician.

My love of this career has developed and changed with me over the years. What keeps me energized everyday is being able to communicate well with owners to help them understand their pet’s specific needs and options, while guiding them towards decisions that are best for their family, no matter the situation. I truly believe that being kind, and utilizing the quote “knowledge is power” we can truly make a difference to our pets, their family and the community around us.

My family is made up of my fiancee Mike, our dog Lex (Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever), and my horse named Logan (Thoroughbred x Morgan). Both Lex and Logan suffer from the dreaded “only child syndrome” and refuse to believe that they need to share attention!
