Samantha Zawada, RVT

Registered Veterinary Technician
Hi, my name is Samantha Zawada. I've been in the veterinary field since 2010. My love and passion for animals and their wellbeing have driven me to become what I proudly am today, an RVT. I graduated from St. Lawrence college spring of 2018 and immediately began to work for Gillies Grove Animal Hospital.

On a day to day basis, my responsibilities include admitting and discharging our patients, making sure they are as comfortable and stress-free as possible during their stay, monitoring them throughout the day and during surgery, safely recovering them after surgeries, performing lab work, collecting samples that the Doctors need and making sure their daily appointments run smoothly. I strive to keep up with my knowledge to best equip myself to answer all the questions that our clients may have.

I am so thankful to be part of this wonderful team here at GGAH. With all of us together, we can assure you that your furry family members are in great hands.

Outside of work, you may find me going on various adventures as I love to be outdoors enjoying nature.
