Veterinary Technician Passes Licensing Exam and Named Student of the Year

By PenBay Veterinary Associates | Dec 20, 2013

PenBay Veterinary Associates is proud to tell everyone that veterinary technician Christine Dyer passed her licensing exam and was named Student of the Year in the Veterinary Technology Program of the University of Maine-Augusta.  Christine is now a licensed veterinary technician!

A licensed veterinary technician must graduate from a two or four year college and achieve an associate's or bachelor's degree in veterinary technology. In addition they must pass the Maine board exam, and perform continuing education each year.

The university’s Department for Academic Excellence selected Christine for her community mindedness and perseverance. She commuted from her home in Lincolnville to her classes at the Bangor campus of UMA. Christine completed the program after taking a year off following the birth of her son. The Student of the Year Award is given to a student who best represents the vet tech program and the spirit of UMA.

Christine joined Pen Bay Veterinary Associates as an intern and is now a regular member of our team.  “They practice great medicine here, and everyone is wonderful,” said Christine, who loves working with animals and continuing to learn about how to care for them.

She lives in Rockport with her husband, their two children, a Saint Bernard, two cats and too many chickens to count.
