Over the 17 years in practice, Ken has discovered and refined his role as a veterinary technician by promoting compassionate and progressive care for the patients and their family. He obtained his VTS certification in emergency and critical care as well as small animal internal medicine. He now practices at Adobe Animal Hospital as an ICU Manager and Blood Bank Manager.

He pursues the goal by showing the value of the profession’s perspective in veterinary medicine.
