Veterinary Technician Interview – Katelyn Farally, CVT

Work Questions

  1. As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? A teacher
  2. How long have you been a VT? – 2 years
  3. What makes MVA a great place to work/ what’s your favorite thing about MVA? Too many things. Metropolitan is an excellent organization to work for because I believe that creativity thrives here. In all aspects of the hospital I feel our voices are heard – our team from top to bottom is always striving to improve practices and protocols to better our patient care/safety, and employee/client satisfaction. The level of medicine practiced behind our walls is outstanding, and the level of nurses we have impress me daily. I love seeing students (nursing assistants, externs ect) learn and watching their passion for veterinary medicine grow. I feel that we as a hospital are strong and the difference we make in our patients and clients lives is monumental!
  4. What is your next professional development goal? VTS? Give a lecture? Learn a new skill? My professional goals are to grow clinically as a nurse, and continue to grow educating those around me. I absolutely love to teach and share my knowledge to those around me. Teach lectures – teach anyone who is willing! Possibly a VTS someday.. just unsure in what!
  5. Do you have any pets? Robbie (sheltie) and Yonkers (dlh) and share a russian tortoise with Hahn D named Ernesta!
