Our Technicians

Our registered technicians perform a wide variety of important tasks. They draw blood, place catheters, take x-rays, and monitor anesthetized patients among many other responsibilities. All have gone to school and passed state and national exams to become registered technicians. Above all, they offer lots of tender loving care and attention to our patients.

Jen, R.V.T., Inventory Manager

Jen graduated from Indiana State University in 1992 with her B.S. in Business Management. After realizing that her heart was not in that field, she returned to school and received her degree in Veterinary Technology from Purdue University in 1994. She had been working as a Registered Veterinary Technician since graduating when she decided to move to Western North Carolina with her husband in 2005, which is when she joined the team at CSAH. She continues to find fulfillment working with animals and has become a member of the NCVRC (North Carolina Veterinary Response Corp).

In her free time, she loves spending time with her husband and animals and walking her 4 wonderful dogs, Brutus, Izzy, Bud, and Kali. She also enjoys photography, boating, and ATV riding. She is affectionately known at CSAH as "Super Tech." 

Leah, R.V.T.

An Asheville native, Leah is proud to call the Blue Ridge Mountains her life-long home.  She is a 2012 graduate of AB Tech's Veterinary Medical Technology Program.  After completing a program in high school to earn her CNA and exploring the human side of medicine, she quickly realized her true passion was elsewhere.  Leah has always had a special place in her heart for all creatures.  She entered the field of veterinary medicine to help all animals, create a voice for the creatures who cannot speak for themselves, and share with their humans the importance of veterinary care. The doctors and staff of CSAH were delighted for Leah to continue working at CSAH, having appreciated her bright, caring personality and excellent skills during her summer internship at our hospital. Outside of work, this charismatic and talented tech loves spending time with her friends and family, embarking on adventures of many kinds and enjoying life.  Leah shares her home and her heart with her 3 cats: Stavi, Lilith, and Mr. Meeks; and her handsome Boerboel Mastiff puppy named Bane.

Casey, R.V.T.

Casey was raised in Pittsboro, North Carolina, and in 2006 came to Asheville to study Spanish at UNC. Our beautiful city soon became her home, and she earned her degree in Veterinary medical Technology from  AB Tech in 2012.  After honing her skills as a surgery tech at the local spay/neuter clinic, Casey joined the tech team at CSAH in 2015. Her hobbies include running, hiking with her dogs, cheering on the Panthers and Tarheels, crafting, and travelling.  Casey currently lives in East Asheville with her husband and two dogs: Pepper, a Shih-Tzu mix, and Jackson, a lab mix.

Allison, R.V.T.

Allison realized she  wanted to become a Veterinary Technician while attending high school in her hometown, Holly Springs, NC. She  learned about AB Tech’s Veterinary Technology program and was won over by Asheville’s beauty and culture; she  was ready to call WNC her  new home! After graduating from AB Tech’s Vet Tech program in 2016, Allison  knew CSAH was the perfect place for her. Their superior standard of medicine, excellent patient care, and awesome team members drew her  in and she  quickly sought out an internship with them. In her  free time, you’ll find her exploring new trails on the Blue Ridge Parkway with her  Flat Coat Retriever, Dolly, or hanging out at home with her  4 cats, Simon, Luna, Moombah, and Meatloaf. She is  always searching for a new recipe and loves spending time cooking in the kitchen. Allison's special interests  that she hopes to pursue in the future include feline behavior and animal nutrition.
