“I’m proud to work at the only facility in Minnesota that offers radiation therapy. 

“Helping patients and clients get through the difficult process of cancer treatment is something that’s personally and professionally rewarding for me. I love that we can be there for people and offer quality care to their pets.

“The best days are when we get to see animals walk again. We even had a patient who went on to win an agility championship after her treatment.”—Jess Coffey, Animal Care Tech Specialist, AFSCME Unit 7 - Technical

“We handle three to six cases a day, and our patients include everything from small cats to a 160-pound mastiff. While we specialize in radiation, we’re cross-trained in anesthesia. I’ve been able to learn and grow so much over my eight years at the VMC, and working with someone who’s become a close friend makes my job even more rewarding.”—Amy Newland, Animal Care Tech Specialist, AFSCME Unit 7 - Technical
