Karen began at VCAH as a Licensed Veterinary Technician in 2003 with a Bachelor of Science degree from Mercy College, and a B.B.A. from Adelphi University. She has since spent time branching out into such specialty fields as zoo medicine, wildlife rehabilitation and rescue work. She returned to VCAH after a brief hiatus and finds she really enjoys the mixed animal environment that is offered here. She is happily a 2 time foster failure owner of 2 mixed breed dogs and 3 rescue cats.
