Mia became a valued member of the BMVH family on April 1st, 2019, which should have been our warning to just how big a practical joker she was going to be! Like the time she covered brussels sprouts in white chocolate and sprinkles and told the staff they were cake pops! The staff’s reactions were pretty priceless! Mia’s great sense of humor, even if its at her own expense, really helps all of us get through the stressful and sad times that are unfortunately unavoidable in veterinary medicine. We don’t ever want to know what its like to be without her wit, her willingness to break into song, or her ability to quote from her favorite tv show, The Office. Equally important, Mia is an excellent technician, with a keen interest in anesthesia and surgery. She especially enjoys scrubbing in to assist for difficult or complex surgeries. Mia is excited by the constant advancements in Veterinary Medicine and loves the challenge of always learning something new. She is patient, detail-oriented and very caring, qualities which extend into her love of training new staff to ensure their success in Veterinary Medicine. Clients really appreciate the compassion and empathy she brings to the exam rooms, along with her willingness to answer questions and help educate clients so they can take to best possible care of their fur-babies. Speaking of fur-babies, Mia loves to spend time with her two dogs, Wyatt the Great Dane and Leroy the Silver Lab. She and her fiance, Joey, love spending time outdoors. They are always up for an adventure, be it 4-wheeling in a mud bog, camping under the stars or simply taking care of their chickens and ducks, oh yeah, and can’t forget the hamster, Norman Bates! We told you she had a great sense of humor!
