December Employee of the Month
Amber is our December Employee of the Month. She is a Veterinary Assistant and has recently graduated from the Vet Tech Institute at Hickey College in St. Louis, MO. She is one of the newest members of the Pekin Veterinary Clinic team. She loves her job and every aspect of it. She also enjoys small animals, including exotics. She is especially interested most in performing dentals, physical therapy and assisting in surgery. She also has two Associate Degrees in Equestrian Science and Horse Science Technology.
In her spare time, she enjoys training and showing horses as well as giving horse back riding lessons. She enjoys both english and western styles of riding. She owns an Australian cattle dog, Cory, who she teaches how to herd horses who she has adopted during tech school.
Over the years, she has had many pets including reptiles, hamsters, fish, horses, dogs and cats, to name a few. She currently has two Great Danes named Riley and Windslow in addition to Cory. She has six horses. She has three quarter horses, Bailey, Gunner, and Remington. She also has a Missouri Fox Trotter, Five-gaited Saddlebred, and an Arabian Stallion. Animals have always been a huge part of her life. They are a good judge of character and are always there for you when you need a friend the most. Becoming a technician has made her more able to return the favor to them in a variety of ways.
In any additional spare time she has, she likes to work out, read and socialize with friends, play the violin, play volleyball, and watch football. We are very honored to have Amber has a part of the Pekin Veterinary Clinic team!
