Samantha Johnson (aka Sammi Jo) has been a part of our family since November 2014. She received her degree in Science of Veterinary Technology from the Veterinary Technician Institute of International Business College in February of 2014. A passion for animals has always been a part of her world. She has worked in the veterinary field since she was 16, working as a kennel attendant, an assistant, a daycare provider, etc. She has a love for Australian Shepherds and has 2 of her own. She lost her soulmate Aussie in 2016 at 10 years of age. His name was Merlynn. She is the mother to a beautiful daughter named Guinevere, who is literally a “mini-me” and comes with all of the sass! Some of Sammi Jo’s hobbies include art, running, camping and swimming. She especially loves the outdoors. Sammi Jo is always striving to advance her skills as a technician. She does have an interest in dentistry as it is very rewarding to be able to see the immediate improvement in the teeth and the health benefits to the pet. She also enjoys caring for our hospitalized patients. Her favorite part of her career is working with a team that treats you like family, and seeing the smiling faces of our patients (and pet owners) when they come in!
