Ania and her Dog

She has a passion for assisting in surgery and monitoring anesthesia. Ania has a special interest in dentistry and internal medicine. Ania is our resident comedian. She always knows how to get a laugh out of the staff at the worst times. Always thinking positive, Ania is ready to stand up for anyone. She will most definitely stand up for any four-legged furry friend that needs help. We are not sure what Ania loves more: tattoos, vacations, or having her vacations tattooed on her. She only asks to give her a chuckle when she needs it. Ania loves to bet on who can get into her monster truck without any help. She is always willing to help out and jump into the next case. Ania is a wonderful addition to our Veterinary Team.
