Bethany is a Licensed Veterinary Technician who has been working in the Birmingham area for over a decade in various settings, recently being promoted to a Shift Lead/Licensed Veterinary Technician.

Bethany is active at local and state levels and serves as the immediate past president of the Alabama Veterinary Technician Association and liaison for the Alabama Veterinary Medical Foundation. She is actively working on a Bachelor's degree in Veterinary Technology. Teaching and advocating for Licensed Veterinary Technicians is her passion. Bethany has been nominated for Veterinary Technician of the Year twice in her career, through Alabama Veterinary Technician Association in 2020 and through Banfield Pet Hospital in 2021 and has been able to attend conferences within the company at a national level. Through work with Banfield, she has been able to provide information to Banfield about state Licensed Veterinary technicians, where they have henceforth donated $10,000 to the Alabama Veterinary Technician Association. After becoming licensed in 2015, Bethany welcomed the first of two boys into the world (Logan and Parker). Along with her children, she enjoys fun filled days with three fantastic felines (Nova, Persephone, and Demeter), a snorty French Bulldog (Yankee), and two talkative Siberian Huskies (Iris and Korra).
