Chrissy is known around the clinic as "Hokie" due to her time spent at Virginia Tech where she studied Mechanical Engineering and Sociology. From the northern part of Virginia, as Chrissy originally entered the work force, she quickly realized her passion for animals and started an entry level position as a kennel attendant. Leaving that employment where she came highly recommended, Chrissy moved to Florida and secured a position with our team. Since being with Bartow Animal Clinic, "Hokie" has cross-trained to learn the front desk as well as being on track to becoming a technician. Chrissy is detail oriented and when she learns a task she keeps at it until she has conquered it. When not here caring for the client's pets, she is at home caring for her 2 dogs Beamer and Petey as well as her rabbit Whitey.
