Victoria Martinez- Lead Kennel Technician

Even though my main purpose at the hospital is to maintain its cleanliness, I also help the Doctor and technicians when they need it. I find myself standing neutral in the debate of whether cats or dogs are better and love working with both! My family consists of 2 cats (Celene &Ciel), 1 dog (Bailey), a son, and my fiancé. Working here at Bethany Pet Hospital is very enjoyable because I feel that we are one big family and they support me while on the path to become a dog trainer and groomer.
