Linda Crowe, RVT
Personal change in my life gave me the motivation to pursue a lifelong desire to work in the veterinary field. Having many pets throughout my life always confirmed I had to be around them. I learned a lot from different pet circumstances and it seemed I had the Ellie Mae touch. A Canadian goose actually took a blade of grass from my fingers and I freed a goat who managed to get his head trapped in a fence. Afterwards, he literally stood there as if to say, "thank you for stopping to help me". Though I didn't have an opportunity for employment or to volunteer with animals as a young adult, I knew my career change was a no brainer...I enrolled in the Veterinary Technician program. I started in SC in 2007, met my now fiancee, Phil, an aircraft mechanic, and eventually moved here to Indiana in 2008. I then enrolled in Vet Tech Institute @ International Business College in March 2009. I graduated in 2010, and became a Registered Vet Tech in 2011. I have been blessed with amazing instructors, technicians and veterinarians who have guided and taught me so much in this late journey of my life. My family, friends and Phil were always a great support system. I started my career in Brownsburg, where I had the great opportunity to meet and work with Dr. Matt, straight from vet school in 2010. When he decided to go out on his own, I was so excited for him. I knew he would do well. Now, a clinic or 2, and ER later, I have an opportunity to take a different path in my technician career, rehabilitation. I came to CPH in MAY 2016. I love client education and having the one on one bond each fur baby deserves, and this couldn't be a better match for me. Dr. Matt is teaching me again...thank you Dr. Matt!!
