Veterinary nurses provide many important services to our patients including: pre- and post-surgical care, monitoring symptoms, administering medications, alerting the doctors to any problems, and giving lots of hugs to frightened animals.
Meet Our Vet Techs
Denise Sanchez, L.V.T.
I started working at GFAH in fall of 2000 as a veterinary assistant. In 2002 I graduated from NOVA and became a licensed veterinary technician. I currently live in Manassas with my husband, Juan, who used to work here as a receptionist. We have two cats, both adopted through here, named Eli (yes, named after Eli Manning, go Giants), and Peyton, and a French bulldog, Cooper. We have all the Manning brothers.
When not working I’m probably traveling. My goal is to see all 50 states. Each year we try to see at least one new state. I’ve been to Guatemala twice, with hopes of going more, to help the local people achieve better living conditions.
My name is Micki Reynolds, and I have been in veterinary medicine for 8 years now. Five years ago I went back to school to earn my degree. I grew up with dogs, cats, horses, and exotics (my two favorites were a cockatoo, and an iguana). I enjoy helping all kinds of animals, and have a passion for learning. I have a rottie/lab mix named Karah and a Russian Tortoise named Tortellini. I am fear free certified, and my areas of interest are anesthesia and behavior. I enjoy spending time with the pets I meet by pet sitting on my down time.
I joined Great Falls in September 2018, but I’ve been working in the field since 2010. I graduated from NOVA and became a licensed veterinary technician in 2016. I am originally from the Finger Lakes region in New York, but I moved to Virginia to complete my bachelor’s degree in Animal and Poultry Sciences (think farm animals) at Virginia Tech. I live with my partner Rachel, our three girls, and our beagle mix, Sebastian.
When we get free time in the midst of raising three kids, Rachel and I like to read, hike, and camp.
