Hans grew up in Merritt Island, Florida and moved to the Tennessee Valley in 2008. He formally studied animal science specializing in pre-veterinary sciences at the University of Tennessee at Martin, and is currently working on becoming a veterinarian specializing in marine life. Hans joined the Banfield team in early 2018 as a veterinary assistant and moved to join our Decatur team as our shift lead in mid 2019. He still uses his free time to volunteer in large animal medical husbandries in the Tennessee Valley. Hans loves animals, including his multiple horses, dogs, cats, cows, snakes, mice, aquatic pets, and his wonderful ferret. He has a high dedication to assist in your pet's health, and loves giving them all the attention they deserve along the way!
