Julie Robinson – Technician
Growing up, dogs were always considered a part of our family and they have always held a special place in my heart. I loved helping out on the farm: feeding the goats, horses, and chickens and I guess you could say I have always had a caring and nurturing soul especially with my animal friends. As I grew older, I thought I wanted to go into the human nursing field. I took classes in high school for nursing and worked in nursing homes for several years, but always felt something was missing. In 2001, I began working as an assistant at Animal Care Hospital and knew I had finally found my calling. In 2007 I enrolled in the vet tech program at Joliet Junior College and achieved my dream of working in the veterinary field as a “nurse” for pets. I can truly say I love my job and the joys it has brought to me over the years have far exceeded anything I could have imagined. Every day I am challenged to continue learning in order to provide for all the patients under my care.
My husband, daughter and I share our home with 1 very loving and demanding dog & 3 cats, I can honestly say they are my world! In my free time my family and I enjoy spending time outdoors. We do a lot of boating, water skiing, fishing, hiking, and bike riding. My daughter is my pride and joy. I love spending time with my family and friends.
I have learned to cherish the small things in life, because in a blink of an eye everything can change.
