Certified Veterinary Technician

Morgan Morgan is new to our practice and to the Pacific Northwest! She moved from North Carolina but is originally from the Florida Keys. Morgan has envisioned herself working with animals for as long as she can remember; She started riding horses at the age of 8 and began training dogs at the age of 11, as an AKC Jr Handler.

Her dedication to caring for animals lead her to studying pre-vet at Clemson University, where she rode on two collegiate equestrian teams. She was also in the Animal Welfare Club, where she actively worked with other organizations, shutting down puppy mills and aiding in their adoptions.

Uncertain vet school was for her, she began working in shelter medicine as an assistant. It was at this time Morgan realized she was meant to be a Veterinary Technician. She graduated from an AVMA accredited program in 2015, obtaining an Associates Degree. She worked both emergency and internal medicine until she followed her heart out west! Her main interests are surgery, anesthesia, and dentistry. She hopes to specialize in veterinary anesthesia eventually.

She is married, has a four year old son, and two fur babies – a dog named Maui, and a cat named Silas.
