Mallory, Technician

Mallory’s pet interest goes back as many do, to childhood. She grew up with numerous cats and dogs of all different sizes throughout her life. She knew from an early age that she wanted to pursue Veterinary Medicine. Mallory first started working as a technician assistant when she was 15 years old in April 2009 at Animal Health Center in Madison, MS. She then proceeded to work as a technician assistant at Briarwood Animal Hospital in Jackson, MS from August 2009 until August 2012. Mallory started her technical career here. From interacting with clients to drawing blood and assisting in surgery, Mallory started acquiring the technical skill that would begin to shape her into the technician she is today.

Soon after, she moved to Starkville, MS and graduated in December 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry from Mississippi State University. While attending school, she also worked as a Veterinary Technician at Animal Medical Center where she began assisting in emergency after-hours surgeries as well as specialty surgeries. She recently moved to Memphis to begin working as a technician for Bluff City Veterinary Specialists. She enjoys giving great quality care to our fuzzy Memphians as well as our furry friends from surrounding areas. Outside of work she is still involved in our veterinary community through foster and rescue. She is proud parent of four fur-covered children ranging from tiny to giant. Needless to say passion, dedication, and experience is no new concept to Mallory.
