Certified Veterinary Technician
Brittany’s mother is a Registered Nurse, so Brittany has been learning about medicine ever since she was a little girl. She knew that she didn’t want to pursue human medicine herself, though. When Brittany thought back about what made her truly passionate, the answer became clear: veterinary medicine would allow her to utilize her interest in medicine and her adoration of animals at the same time!
Brittany hails from Central Illinois and first launched her journey in animal care by signing on as a dog bather at a local pet store. Clyde’s Veterinary Clinic took care of sick animals from that store, and a former employee mentioned to Brittany that the hospital was hiring. She jumped at her chance to get her foot in the door at a veterinary clinic!
Brittany first joined the Clyde’s Veterinary Clinic team as a receptionist, and then returned to school to study veterinary technology. She graduated as a Certified Veterinary Technician, and has been helping pets in that capacity here at the clinic ever since. Brittany has a special passion for dental work, and she also loves nursing hospitalized patients back to full health.
Away from work, Brittany likes spending time outdoors, reading, and spending time with her fiancé, Colton, and their pets. The couple lives in Mattoon with a pair of Miniature Dachshunds, Susie and Frankie; three cats who go by Luna, Valhalla, and Sazh; and a corn snake named Randy.
