LVT and Hospital Manager
Jimmy grew up and has lived his adult life in the tri-county area. From a young age, he has always had a passion for pets. One day an opportunity came about for a job at a small veterinary hospital. He started as an unlicensed assistant with no experience and worked his way up.
In 2000, while still serving as a vet assistant, he began taking part-time college classes and eventually got his LVT license. In 2018, he was awarded Licensed Veterinary Technician of the Year by the SCAV.
Jimmy was at his previous practice just shy of 25 years. He helped that practice grow from a small three-doctor, seven-staff practice to an enormous hospital with seven doctors and 40 staff members. Recently, he decided it was time to find a new place to call home, which led him here to Pleasant Pet Care.
Through the years, Jimmy’s pets have included dogs, cats, reptiles, a ferret, a rabbit, birds, and fish. He now has a cat, two dogs, a snake, tortoises, and fish.
