Amanda started her veterinary career in 2013 as a Kennel Assistant and then proceeding to a Veterinary Assistant while pursuing her higher education goals. She graduated from The University of Mary Washington in 2016 with a bachelor’s degree in biology and, at that time, also fully realized her love of the more technical aspects of veterinary medicine, specifically anesthesia and hands-on skills, such as venipuncture and catheter placement. Upon completion of the Veterinary Technology program through Northern Virginia Community College, she officially became a Licensed Veterinary Technician in 2018. After working 8 years in general practice, Amanda decided to take the plunge into specialty veterinary medicine with The Oncology Service and has been with us since Fall 2020.
Amanda is extremely passionate about client communication and ensuring clients and their pets feel comfortable as well as supported throughout their cancer journey. Amanda lives with her family and 3 doofy dogs - Olive (black lab mix), Jackson (GSP), and Jesse (Golden Retriever). When Amanda is not at work, she enjoys long walks through the park with her family, participating in 5K fun runs, checking out new breweries, and playing coed softball!
