Bo grew up in rural West Texas and has been friends with the animal kingdom since he was able to walk. He began working within the veterinary community at the age of fourteen. Bo has worked with all sorts of animals ranging from cattle to alligators and has a passion for teaching people. He has been a veterinary practice manager as well as a licensed veterinary technician for many years. Bo joined Animal Emergency Care as our Hospital Administrator in the fall of 2016 and is committed to addressing the needs of our wonderful community. Background Bo’s family never shared his passion, but this never stopped him. He started his own farm on some unused land with a few dollars and a teenage dream. He managed to grow his operation to a herd of pigs, goats, sheep, and a couple heads of cattle by the time he was college bound. Bo volunteered with various zoological societies over the first few years of his career working primarily with reptiles, amphibians, and island life. He used this experience to expand his career to include wildlife rehabilitation later in life. He began working with a veterinary hospital in Austin, Texas where he began learning the tricks of the veterinary technician trade. He eventually moved to the Pacific Northwest and continued to solidify his knowledge. Bo developed a passion for learning anything new from any professional willing to teach him. Bo remained employed with the same veterinary clinic for almost ten years where he climbed through the ranks and became the practice manager. Bo completed specialized training from a private veterinary consulting firm to harness the necessary skills required of a veterinary hospital administrator. Education Bo’s undergraduate course work consisted of biochemistry with plans of becoming a veterinarian but discovered his passion for helping people help animals by working within the veterinary community. He is currently working toward finalizing his credentials to become a certified veterinary practice manager and hopes to complete his MBA in the near future. Bo believes the key to living is expanding the mind each and every day. He stays actively involved with many educational programs within the veterinary field to insure the growth and opportunities for everyone destined for a career in veterinary medicine.
