Veterinary Assistant

Education: St Petersburg College

Debbie comes to Oakhurst with over 20 years’ of experience in healthcare supply chain management and as a retired Army veteran. When deciding on a second career, Debbie knew it was time to do something she really loved. Since she loves animals, becoming a Certified Veterinary Technician was the perfect choice.

Debbie has a Bachelor’s Degree from Louisiana State University in Shreveport, Louisiana. She is currently enrolled at St Petersburg College in the Certified Veterinary Technology Program.

Debbie loves being part of a compassionate and competent team dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of our patients and their human companions.

Along with going to school full-time and working at Oakhurst, Debbie enjoys creating and maintaining butterfly and bird gardens, cooking, mountain biking and taking naps. With her full schedule it would seem that the most logical recreational choice would be the naps.

Debbie’s children include Baby, a twelve year old Lab mix, Ray a one year plus Terrier mix (pictured with Deb), Jackson, a thirteen year old domestic short hair cat and Jocie, a ten year old DSH cat. We here at Oakhurst will do our best to get Debbie to adopt at least a few more kids while she is here. Once we figure out that someone on the staff is a good pet parent, we go out of our way to help them get more love in their life via more cats and dogs.
