- Featured Employee Lindsey Bouchard!
Here at the Boght & Oakwood Veterinary Clinics we have had the pleasure of working with Lindsey Bouchard since May of 2014. She was a senior in high school who was doing a career exploration internship with us. She was able to gain knowledge and hands-on experience during the internship, and when the program was over, she joined our staff as a cross-trained employee.
She has worked in all sections of our hospital. In our boarding kennel she is responsible for caring for cats and dogs and is responsible for daily feeding, cleaning kennels and any necessary medicating. As a receptionist she is very good at multi-tasking, answering phones, dealing with our clients and working with our veterinary assistants and technicians. As a veterinary assistant she is responsible for animal restraint, running lab work and monitoring anesthetized animals as well as hospitalized patients. She works closely with our doctors during their daily appointments. In this respect she obtains a brief history, relays any concerns to the doctors and answers any general questions from our clients related to their pet’s care.
In all these positions Lindsey has shown herself to be confident and competent.
She is reliable and knowledgeable and supports her coworkers, often lending a helping hand without being asked. One of the best things about Lindsey is that she is passionate about learning. She is always looking for ways to improve her skills and gain more knowledge of animal care and veterinary medicine in general. Whether volunteering at a local shelter or coming in on her day off to observe in surgery, she is always excited about caring for our four legged friends
Lindsey is due to complete her undergraduate studies at SUNY Albany in 2017 and plans on attending veterinary school and becoming a DVM. We are glad to support Lindsey for her future plans in veterinary medicine.
