Veterinary Technician, Leigh, started as a volunteer with Partridge Animal Hospital in August 2017 and we loved her so much we offered her a permanent position in December 2017. She assists with surgeries, radiographs, making sure hospitalized patients are comfortable and so much more.
She really enjoys helping with anesthetic procedures and being an advocate for the patients as well as their owners. She’s worked at Dogtown as well as Catty Shack Wildlife Sanctuary giving her 2 years under her belt in animal care. Leigh has a degree in Communications & Advertising from The University of North Florida and is currently enrolled at St. Petersburg College working towards her Veterinary Technician Degree. She is due to graduate in 2019.
“I love working at Partridge Animal Hospital because they are so much more than just a spay and neuter clinic. They practice much more advanced medicine and I’m constantly learning something new each day. The Veterinarians and staff are fun, caring and supportive. I wouldn’t want to work anywhere else.”
Leigh has a Chocolate Labrador Mix, named Harley. They both enjoy taking naps and going for long walks where they get to stop and smell every single blade of grass that was put on Earth.
Besides spending time with Harley, Leigh enjoys fine art, traveling, sunsets down at the Getaway and is also a big foodie. Visiting State Parks as well as kayaking are another fun favorite of hers.
