Colleen Conley R.V.T.:
Update 08/23/2011: Big Congratulations to Colleen for completing her schooling and licensing and becoming a Registered Veterinary Technician!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Colleen has been with Ygnacio Animal Hospital for 29 years. She started as a kennel worker/ assistant under the late Dr. Weldin and has moved up to Technician Manager. Colleen has a Labrador mix named Dozer, that she rescued from Animal Services almost 10 years ago. "He is definitely woman's best friend". Colleen had had dogs, cats, rabbits, fish and even a few pigeons as members of her family. "I enjoy witnessing the close relationships people have with their pets in good times and bad. Our pets have become, for many of us, members of our family. I enjoy the people I work with and I get to work around animals all day. Who could ask for more?"
Gail Brandt is our Technician Assistant and has been with Ygnacio Animal Hospital for 2 years. Gail has also been a licensed human nurse for 25 years. Gail has one cat, a handsome tuxedo named Flea, who weighs 20 lbs.
