Growing up in Collingswood, New Jersey, Nicky always had a soft spot for animals. When she had the opportunity to start working at a local shelter, she jumped at the chance! This sparked a career in animal care that has led Nicky all the way to her current position as one of Golden Valley Animal Hospital’s Veterinary Assistants.
After working at the animal shelter, Nicky signed on as a Veterinary Assistant at a two-doctor practice and then worked for a five-doctor small-animal practice. After that, she moved to Minnesota and began here at the clinic in February of 2014. Drawing blood is one of her favorite things to do around the clinic, and above all she enjoys seeing ill pets go home healthy. Nicky is currently attending tech school through the online program at Penn Foster.
At home, Nicky lives with her fiance, Emily, and their Chihuahuas, Thomas Capone, Fernando and Doug who enjoy sleeping in bed with Nicky even though they have a very nice dog bed. When time permits, Nicky enjoys spending time with her friends and eating good sushi.
