I hope that many of you will accept me being here to gather information and support.
I am a RVT (registered veterinary technician) in Georgia. I have an associate's degree in veterinary technology and have passed the national examination, maintaining CE hours & a license in my state to practice. I am looking to promote our field in a way to cause more strict regulation somewhat like that in human medicine. Anyways, enough about my cause!!!
I am also a mother of 2 wonderful children and my husband is a police officer whose partner is of the furry persuasion. The have just been partnered to each other. Cosmo is a beautiful Belgian Malinois with an amazing temperment and he LOVES our kids. He even likes our other personal dogs and cat (most of this type of training DO NOT get along well with other animals!!) I am involved in karate with my whole family and love to read book sin my spare time. I also am an actice member of our state and national organizations (GVTAA & NAVTA) and am currently working towards my bachelor's degree in veterinary technology & associates in marketing. Once I have finished those programs, I hope to have enough hours logged to submit an application for my specialization in dentistry.
Looking forward to hearing from anyone in the human side of things on how we can improve our field. Also looking for some good chat with people invvolved in medicine of any sort.
Thanks for listening,
Melanie R. Parham, RVT
