Lisa is originally from Memphis, Tennessee. Lisa has known ever since she was six years old that she wanted to work with animals. She became a veterinary assistant at the age of sixteen. Marriage in 1999 took her to Louisiana, where she worked for Louisiana State University, New Orleans as a surgical technician in the Department of Animal Care until the start of 2006. Hurricane Katrina made her realize that life is too short to not do what you love. In May 2006, she began taking classes to become a registered veterinary technician. She took and passed her national exam in January 2009 and graduated with an Associate’s degree in Veterinary Technology from Cedar Valley College in May 2009. She joined us in December of 2016, after her husband was transferred here. Working as an RVT is a passion for her and she knows that this was one of the good things that was a direct result of Hurricane Katrina. Lisa and her husband, Nathan, have a sixty-two pound lap dog named Leo.
