NAVTA announces Veterinary Technician of the Year, 4 Dec 2013 [cached]
"A very deserving technician and an incredible advocate for NAVTA, Kara Burns, has been the recipient of our award this year."
Kara Burns, M.S., M.Ed., L.V.T., actually began her professional career in human medicine as a counseling psychologist in an emergency department in Maine and as a poison specialist for the Maine Poison Control Center. "Working at the poison center provided me with the opportunity to work with people and animals," Kara said. "My passion for working with animals led me to work in a small animal clinic in Maine and pursue my veterinary technician license. I was especially drawn to nutrition in practice because nutrition affects every animal, whether healthy or ill." Her passion for nutrition led Kara to Hill's Pet Nutrition where her current role is as a veterinary technician specialist. "My current position has given me a unique opportunity to help veterinary technicians across North America," Kara said. "I work with technicians at the local, state, specialty and national level. I speak and write about nutrition and disease, the importance of utilizing technicians in practice, and personal and professional leadership."
