Graduate Spotlight: Jennifer Huffman
I graduated at the top of my class in 2012 from the Rockford Career College Vet Tech Program. I went to a 2-year community college and a 4-year University prior to attending the Vet Tech program at Rockford Career College. It was a completely different and great experience in the Vet Tech program. I felt like the teachers really cared how I did in the program and it made me strive to do my best.
Since graduating from the Vet Tech program I have been working in a small animal practice where I did my externship. I felt very prepared starting at the practice I am after finishing the Vet Tech program and doing my externship at the practice I am at currently. I almost immediately became one of the two main surgery technicians at Prairie View Animal Hospital & love the challenge that comes from being a surgery tech. I appreciate all the help I got along the way in the Vet Tech program and the lifelong friends I made while attending the program; both my previous teachers and other students in my class.
My time at RCC in the Vet Tech program was some of the best and most challenging times of my life and I will never forget them. I look forward to many years as a technician, eventually specializing in many different areas.
