Robbin B, (A.A.S. in Veterinary Technology), Veterinary Nurse
Robbin's move to Morgantown and her desire to be in the veterinary field both happened when she was young. At the age of 5, her family relocated from New York so her father could pastor a local church here. Robbin's love for helping animals grew and she decided to pursue the veterinary field as a career. A 2013 graduate of Fairmont State University/Pierpont Community & Technical College, she gained experience during internships at Paw Prints and the WVU Office of Lab Animal Research. She shares her home with her 2 pomeranians named Simba and Sophie and Rocky, the beagle. Robbin says there is nothing like the feeling of nursing a sick animal back to health and wants to be the best veterinary nurse she can be.
Kim F, Veterinary Nurse
After graduating high school in Michigan and working in Illinois, Kim's path has led her to West Virginia. Having grown up with special needs dogs, Kim's love for dogs was established and continues to grow. That love has also expanded to cats as she couldn't resist taking in a stray which she named Bella. Kim and her husband have a bustling home with their 2 girls (of the two legged variety) and canine companions, Zoey and Titan. They also found out that they enjoyed Bella's company so much that they adopted Xylon from our AMC Adoption Program! She is excited about having a career in animal care; since she started here with us in the Spring of 2015, she has grown into an integral member of our nursing team.
