Abigail “Abbey”

Veterinary Assistant

Pets: Yuki (Cat), Rimbaud (Cat), & Jeeves (Rabbit)

For my entire life I have loved all animals, from the creatures of the wild, to my household pets. I grew up in in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago with my 3 dogs, 3 hamsters, 2 tadpoles, and 1 gecko. When I was in high school, I started as a volunteering as a kennel attendant and dog walker at a local shelter. After high school I moved to Chicago with no plan. All I knew is that I wanted to be around dogs and cats all day long, so I called every dog walking company in the city and applied. I was thrilled when I was got a call back and started working. I continued there for about a year and a half. It was a really pleasant experience, but I knew I wanted to continue my education in the animal care field. I started attending Rockford Career College and am currently enrolled in the Veterinary Technician program. After getting some experience from school, I applied to TLC First Animal Hospital as a veterinary assistant where I continue to learn from the awesome staff here, as well as from my college instructors.

In my free time I like to play music, paint, and go on bike rides. And most of all, I love to play with all my pets at home. Currently I have two kitties, Yuki and Rimbaud, as well as a 7 year old rabbit named Jeeves. I hope to welcome many more fur babies into my family in the future, and I have a feeling that, while working here, it will be hard to resist.
