My name is Brianna, I’ve been working as a tech at Marion Animal Hospital for three years. I started working with animals my sophomore year of high school and have been passionate about my job ever since. Once I graduated high school, I completed two years of college as a pre-vet student and joined the SC National Guard. One of the things I take most interest in at work is the pharmacy. Dr. Hutchinson takes her time to explain why we use specific medications for certain illnesses/infections. After work, I use my free time to tend to my family, house, and animals. On weekends, I visit family and enjoy going to the farmer’s market.
