“I’ve been at SVH for almost 4 years. Some of the things I like about working here are:
we give great care to our patients and clients
even on rough, busy days we can still manage to laugh together at the end
we try hard to keep a positive attitude and be respectful of others at all times
I love that we’ve established core values and try to follow them daily. It’s what’s important to us.
We have a great leadership team that’s always trying to make improvements and solve problems to make SVH a better place.
I love e the bonds I’m able to form with our clients. Especially since we’re in a rural area and a lot our clients are people I know or know of my family. I think it makes people feel better about us taking care of their pets.
At the end of the day we’re a small staff with big hearts and will work hard to help you take care of patients you will see.” Jessica Fundis, CVT
