A lifelong animal lover, Trish was inspired to advance her career in canine rehabilitation by her dog Tank. Tank became a front limb amputee following a traumatic injury at 10 months of age. Trish is a biology graduate of Bridgewater College in 2014 and Veterinary Technology graduate of Blue Ridge Community College in 2016. In 2017 Trish started here at Virginia Veterinary Specialists and completed her certification as a Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner from the University of Tennessee in 2023. Trish’s special interests include rehab and fitness for Tripawd dogs, osteoarthritis, and geriatric comfort. She is also a Fear Free Certified Professional and Walkin’ Wheels Certified to fit Walkin’ Wheels wheelchairs for specially abled dogs. Trish currently resides in Broadway, Virginia with my husband, Johnny, two beautiful and delightfully quirky dogs, and seven chickens. In her spare time, she enjoys gardening, hiking, and scent work sports with Tank, and her reactive dog, Houston.


Kiah joined the VVS team in 2016. She is a Veterinary Technology graduate of Blue Ridge Community College in 2016.
