  • Karen
    Veterinary Technician

    My name is Karen and I am thirty four years old. I was born and raised in Vero Beach, FL. I started working as a Veterinarians assistant when I was in high school. After high school I got married, started a family, and we all backpacked/traveled parts of Central America for the majority of adecade. Through our travels my passion for nature, community, and animals deepened. I was able to come back to Florida and jump right back into the roll of being a Veterinarians assistant! I love what I do and am fortunate to be working with such a wonderful team that teaches and supports me towards achieving my goals.

  • Brittany

    My name is Brittany, I have been in the veterinary field for nearly ten years. My passion within this field contains internal medicine along with hospitalization, emergency care and surgery. I'm usually the last thing your pet sees before going under anesthesia and the first thing they see when coming out. Outside of the veterinary field, I go home everyday to a loving household of two hound dogs, the sweetest tortoiseshell domestic short-hair feline (and I guess my husband too). Here at Southside Veterinary Hospital, I have gained such a great second family, who bond well together and constantly help each other learn and grow! Here's to the next few years coming!
