Hi, my name is Carol Brighton. I grew up on a farm on Roberts Island. Since my early childhood I have always had a special bond with animals. I started working at Sierra Veterinary Clinic four years ago as a kennel assistant. Because of the training the staff here provided for me the last two years I have worked as a Veterinary Technician Assistant. I feel I contribute to the clinic because of my unique approach of the way I handle the patients here. I have my own language I talk to them with. I also use soft verbal tones combined with gentle stroking to calm the patients down when they are afraid or in pain. Sierra Veterinary Clinic has given me the opportunity to pursue my dreams. Working here has been a joy for me.
