Registered Veterinary Technician – Lead Technician

Another North Carolina native, Lydia was born and raised in Hickory. She attended Gaston College and graduated with an Associate in Applied Science of Veterinary Medical Technology degree. Lydia did her internship with us while she was in college. We liked her so much, we invited her to come back, and she did – as a Registered Veterinary Technician. Through the years, Lydia has proven to be dependable and easy to get along with. She was designated Lead Veterinary Technician in 2019, and is in charge of the daily treatment protocols, exam room operation, and managing our increased staff of registered technicians, nurses and assistants.

Lydia is sometimes a little quieter than the rest of us, but she has her rowdy times, as well. She’s always ready to help, and calm cool and collected. Lydia enjoys traveling and vacations. Lydia’s a great baker and has brought many “goodies” in for us to taste test – they never last very long! She has a nice voice when she sings around the clinic, and she knows the words to all the songs! Family and friends are important to her. She and husband Michael have one daughter and 3 spoiled pets – dogs Molly and Rambler, and their cat, Kyodi.
