Meet our veterinary technician Ellen! She has more than 26 years of experience in the veterinary field and has done some amazing things in her career, including working with seals at the Marine Mammal Rehab Center in San Francisco and with a llama named Major Tom. Ellen has been here at East Louisville Animal Hospital since 2015, and I’ve tried to hint around to her that I’d like to work with seals, too—but I don’t think they’re hiring Labradoodles. Ellen gives our patients “special treatments” while they’re here, like lots of kisses, which are always just what the doctor ordered!

When she’s not working, Ellen enjoys reading, dancing, cake decorating, and spending time with her husband, son, and their two dogs and cat.
