Nicole was born and raised in Texas and is new to the Banfield team. She is enrolled in the Penn Foster program to receive her veterinary technician certification, and is very excited about her job and the adventures it will bring. Nicole is a passionate animal lover and has been known to be a little late for a dinner date because she had to stop and pick up a stray pet. She has 3 dogs: 5-year-old Labrador retrievers, Bentley and Selena, a 2-year-old pit/boxer mix named Lola, and 2 cats, Daisy and Bruce. They all are her inspiration and motivation for becoming a veterinary technician.
