Originally from Macomb, Michigan – Jane moved to sunny Florida in April 2008. Her first job was at a dog and cat boarding facility. She knew after a few years that she wanted to work in a vet hospital so she worked at a few vet hospitals in Michigan. She began her career as a vet assistant then with hard work she made her way to the position of vet tech. She loves working as a technician because there is so much gratification in everyday. Jane has a Persian cat named “Gizmo”. Some of Jane’s extra-curricular activities outside of work include spending time with friends, relaxing at the beach, volleyball, softball and most of all shopping!

Tracy, who is born and raised in Florida, lives with her 2 daughters and 7 pets. She has been in the veterinary field since the mid 90’s and couldn’t imagine doing anything else!
Outside of work she enjoys going to the beach, movies, car events and horseback riding.
Tracy enjoys the challenge of trying to figure out the problems of each patient, since they do not talk or “tell” you what is wrong. It takes LOTS of training and compassion to care for pets and she is one of the BEST! We are so fortunate to have her with us at AHVC!
