Tricia L., CVPM – Hospital Director
From a young age Trish demonstrated a true love for people and animals. She quickly recognized the depth of the “human animal bond”, often referred to as the “love hormone”. She realized the significant role in human bonding, from that moment Trish knew her career path needed to provide this important connection.
Trish went on to work every facet of the Veterinary industry…equine, small animal, animal sheltering and nonprofit, ruminants and farm animals, customer service, certified horse trainer, RVT, VTS, and so much more. The one place that allowed Trish to stretch her skills most and support others is a Practice Manager. Trish loves working closely with her team and the clients that visit Irving Pet Hospital.
The best part of her job, even 20+ years later, is still sharing the human animal bond with others.
