Madison Newman — Veterinary Assistant

Hi I’m Madison I am a certified Vet Assistant and I came to Animal health services in early 2016. I got my certification at Carrington College and also have an Associates degree from Paradise Valley Community College. I have a 5-year-old Yorkie-Chihuahua mix also known as a Chorkie named Gus. I got him when he was just 8 weeks old and he’s been my buddy ever since. He is super active and loves to play frisbee. I have always had a love for animals and being in the Veterinary field is always what I have aspired to do as a career. It is a field with many different aspects of opportunity and It is always a joy to come to work and help people and the 4 legged family members that they love.
