In 2015, Rachael accomplished her goal of becoming a Licensed Veterinary Technician. Rachael’s interest in animal care began in her early years when she started horseback riding. Her passion and love for animals grew stronger from there and she knew her dream was to help animals and provide compassionate care to them and their owners.

In her free time, Rachael enjoys hiking and being outdoors. Rachael is a very skillful and compassionate technician and we are grateful that she is on our team.

Marisa, Licensed Veterinary Technician

Marisa grew up with a love of animals from a young age. From cats, dogs, and rabbits to chickens, pygmy goats, and countless foster failures, her family was never without a handful of furry and feathered friends. She attained her AAS in Veterinary Technology from Pierpont C&TC and became an LVT in the summer of 2017. Her experience includes a range of veterinary settings: small animal, equine, wildlife, and mixed 24 hour emergency practices.

Marisa joined the Leesburg Veterinary Internal Medicine team in the spring of 2018. She loves learning new things, and sharing this knowledge with pet parents. Treating patients with the same care and compassion she does her own pets is her priority. When not at work, Marisa enjoys time with her two cats, Trouble and Rascal, reading, and spending time with friends and family. Marisa has a big heart and is very compassionate; she always gives it 110% and is great with our patients and their families.
