Veterinary Assistant

Julie Kirkland

Almost a decade into the veterinary field, Julie has pursued her passion in both leadership roles (Hospital Manager, Veterinary Technician Supervisor) and as a member of high paced emergency and routine surgical and trauma teams as a Veterinary Technician. Her greatest takeaway is the level of teamwork that is integral in veterinary care as we don’t only treat animals, we treat families.

Julie is RECOVER Certified in CPR, received her Certification in Medical Acupuncture for Veterinary Technicians and is currently finalizing her last course & final externship in Penn Foster’s Veterinary Technician AAS program. After VTNE completion she will be pursuing a VTS in Dentistry and Rehabilitation. Julie truly loves to mentor incoming and current veterinary teams and teaching CPR courses.

When not in the hospital, Julie and her husband can be found running wild (ultramarathoners!) with our rescue pups.

We are honored to welcome Julie to our URvet Care team, her passion for teaching and continued learning is a cherished asset we value in all of our team-members.
