After graduating with a bachelor’s degree from the Veterinary Technology program at Michigan State University in 2006 she worked in several different fields of small animal veterinary medicine ranging from orthopedic surgery to emergency and critical care. She moved back home to Traverse City in 2007 to pursue her true passion as a technician in general practice. Beth joined the team at Clarke-Everett Dog & Cat Hospital in August of 2012.
