“So I can help people help their pets. So I can share what I know and what I’ve learned with people so they can make informed decisions about the health and happiness of their pets and so that they can continue to care for them for the duration of their lifespan. ” – Sally Tolliver
Licensed Veterinary Technician Sally Tolliver joined the staff at Eastside Veterinary Associates when the hospital first opened in October of 2008, and has been working in the pet care field for more than 20 years. She says she knew from an early age that she wanted to work with animals and at age 16 landed her first job working at a local veterinary hospital.
While working at the Humane Society, Sally earned an Associate’s Degree in Animal Technology from Pierce College in 1996. Throughout the years she has worked at area general veterinary practices or for organizations providing low-cost spay and neuter services. With her wealth of experience, she is responsible for a wide variety of medical care services, which she says helps make her job interesting each day.
Asked what she enjoys most about her work at Eastside Vet, Sally says, “I have worked with or known the staff here for years. They are all intelligent and compassionate people that make it very easy and fun to come to work here.” Her own pets are a Chihuahua mix named Mickey and a cat named Turbo. In her spare time, Sally enjoys gardening and chasing around her two young kids.
