Dogs have been in Jeff’s life for as long as he can remember and he has always had a soft spot for German Shepherds, and for any breed that is often considered intimidating. Jeff understands and appreciates the challenges of forming a strong bond with such breeds that many pet owners find difficult to connect with. He began his career during his teenage years, taking on pet sitting jobs, until he accepted a kennel position at a veterinary hospital in 2015. Jeff’s knowledge and skills allowed him to advance quickly. Within a year, he was promoted to a veterinary technician role. Currently at Lyons Vet, he is in a leadership position, helping to train and guide veterinary technicians and those who aspire to be in such a role. Jeff’s interests include listening to infectious disease podcasts and murder mysteries. He has two dogs of his own, Cedar and Huckleberry, and hopes to continue advancing towards his ultimate goal of becoming a veterinarian.
