Meet Amanda - Practice Manager:
Amanda comes to us all the way from Texas by way of Kentucky. She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Business from the University of Kentucky, Gatton College of Business. Don’t worry, she still bleeds blue! Living in the horse capital of the world made working in the industry easy and off to Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital she went. Starting out as a nursing technician supervisor for 5 years she thought she wanted to become a veterinarian. It was then she realized office life suited her better and spent the next 10 years as an administrative assistant for two surgeons and two Associate Veterinarians. After a brief stint at the Rood and Riddle Veterinary Pharmacy, where she earned her pharmacy technician license, she flew the coup and came to Carter Veterinary Services as the Practice Manager in 2019. In her free time, she indulges in her life’s passion and teaches tumbling and all-star cheerleading at a local gym. You might also find her biking or kayaking.
