Veterinary Technician​

Hello, I’m Caitlin. I recently moved to the Cincinnati area from Wisconsin and have been working as a veterinary technician for the last three years. I have wanted to work in this field since elementary school and am happy to be living out that dream. I share my home with a rescue dog named Tara, and two guinea pigs, Oswin and Hermione. In my free time I like to play video games, read, and cross stitch. I’m looking forward to getting to know the Pleasant Ridge area!
