Amber Desvignes – Registered Veterinary Technician
Amber was born in Hope Mills, NC where she grew up for most of her life. Her father was military so she did move some, but was lucky to end up back in the Hope Mills area.
Amber originally wanted to go to school to be a veterinarian, but instead she went to Central Carolina Community College and graduated in 2010 to become an RVT. She is now back in school to become an RN. Amber will always work with animals by doing relief work because she loves it too much to let it go.
Jessica Patterson – Registered Veterinary Technician
Jessica grew up in Sanford. As long as she can remember, she had a huge interest in animals. Her dad bred and showed Treeing Walker Coonhounds while she was growing up. She always helped out with puppies, and even showed some when she was younger. Her parents always have said that from the moment she could talk, all she ever wanted to do in life was be an "animal doctor."
When Jessica was in high school, she had the opportunity to take a co-op class that allowed her to leave school and volunteer at a place of her choice – which happened to be All Animals Veterinary Hospital! It was the experience she gained here that made her choose the veterinary technician field.
