Rebecca Piotrowski began her veterinary career in 2011, after graduating with honors from Brown Mackie College in Boise, Id. Surgery has always been her chief professional interest, so shortly after graduation, she moved to Ketchum, Idaho to work at the Sun Valley Animal Center. Her passion for surgery continued to grow and she joined WestVet Emergency & Specialty Center in Garden City, Idaho where she achieved a VTS (veterinary technician specialist) designation in the discipline of surgery by passing a rigorous application and examination process with the NAVTA (National Academy of Veterinary Technicians in America) recognized AVST (Academy of Veterinary Surgical Technicians) in 2020.
She feels this designation was an essential step in her mission to provide surgical-related continuing education opportunities to fellow technicians. She is currently working with Veterinary Surgical Specialists in Spokane, Wa. When not in the OR Rebecca enjoys creating in a variety of media including painting, and sculpture.
