Dan stumbled into the veterinary world entirely by accident, but he couldn’t be happier to have found a career path he loves. While supporting his fiancé through school to become a Certified Veterinary Technician herself, he was approached to help out at the practice she worked with—Dan became a Kennel Assistant and immediately started learning the ropes of the profession. Now, 15 years later, Dan is proud to help animals hands-on as a Veterinary Technician!
Dan is originally from Hollywood, Florida and previously worked in the field of antique restoration. After securing his first position in a veterinary clinic, he worked his way up the ladder to a Veterinary Assistant position, and is now a Veterinary Technician.
Dan joined the Animal Medical Center team after moving to Valrico from St. Augustine, and he’s been tending to the pets and animal parents of this area ever since. Around the clinic, he enjoys the challenge of performing blood draws and placing IV lines. His favorite part of every shift is seeing the great relief that he and his team are able to provide for patients and families. Being able to make a true difference is what it’s all about for Dan!
Away from work, Dan is a fan of science and loves tinkering with electronic equipment. He has one pet of his own at home: Quinn, a snowshoe cat who likes to strum Dan’s guitar to wake him up in the mornings.
