Hi there! My name is Elizabeth Theriault. I am one of the veterinary technicians at the Burlington Veterinary Center. I knew that I wanted to work with animals early on. In fact, in kindergarten I decided that I wanted to be a vet when I grew up and often “practiced” on my childhood cat, Chloe. My passion for animals grew further when I began horseback riding at thirteen years old. I rode and showed horses throughout high school (and later in college too). After discovering my love for horses, I decided that I wanted to become an equine veterinary technician. So, I attended Wilson College, where I majored in Veterinary Medical Technology with a concentration in Equi-Assist. I gained experience working with not only horses, but with various small and large animals too. However, it was in the Clinical Experience course that I discovered my enthusiasm for small animal anesthesia and surgery. I graduated from Wilson College in the spring of 2021 and began working at the Burlington Veterinary Center shortly after. At BVC, I have been able to explore my interest in small animal medicine, as well as utilize and further develop my skills and knowledge as a veterinary technician. In addition to this, I am currently preparing to take the Veterinary Technician National Exam to become a certified veterinary technician. Outside of BVC, I enjoy spending time with my friends, family, and of course, pets. I have a cat, Mia, who likes to spend her days eating and napping (preferably in the sun), and a Cavapoo, Louis, who loves to play with toys (including cat toys) and spend time outside.
