Megan’s mother instilled in her a compassion and love for all animals at an early age. When her high-school counselor told Megan about the Veterinary Technician role, she knew that she’d happened across the perfect career path! Megan hasn’t looked back since. Now, she’s thrilled to tend to the pets and animal owners of Mission here at Mission Veterinary Hospital.
Megan is from Buffalo, New York and attended Medaille College to earn her Associate’s degree in veterinary technology. She passed her National Veterinary Technician exam in 2009 to become a Licensed Veterinary Technician, then began working at the same hospital where she had completed her internship. Next, Megan continued school and earned her Bachelor’s degree in biology in the spring of 2010.
Megan relocated to Texas from New York for her husband’s job in early 2017, and joined the team here at Mission Veterinary Hospital shortly thereafter. She has particular interests in critical care (nothing beats getting a sick patient to eat on their own!), anesthesia, and surgical work.
When she isn’t caring for animals here at the clinic, Megan enjoys hiking, camping, traveling, and trying out local restaurants with her husband, Justin. She also enjoys Skyping with family back home every chance she gets. The couple shares their home with three mischievous feline companions—Large Marge, Phyllis, and Sam—who love to wake Megan up at 5:00 a.m. on a daily basis, to demand their breakfast.
