Amanda finally decided to make the switch back to general practice after working in shelter medicine for the last 7 years. Her experience as the Veterinary, Training and Behavior Director at the Baltimore Humane Society has enabled Amanda to utilize her management and organizational skills here at PHAH, while also contributing on the veterinary side. Amanda has worked in several technical positions in general practice medicine and earned her AA degree in Veterinary Technology and certification in 2011. One of Amanda’s passions is dog behavior and training. She has conducted training classes for PHAH in the past and is currently pursuing a certification in “Fear Free Handling”. A future goal is to obtain the Behavior Specialty Certification for RVTs. Her pets at home include Dobby, a poodle, and her main man, Crookshanks, a 10-year old Persian (pictured!).
