Marissa Johnson

 

Certified Veterinary Technician

 

I was raised from a young age to live in harmony with animals and nature, and have always been completely at ease with my four legged friends! Growing up in a household with both dogs and cats, some of my earliest memories are of tending to the household pets and making sure they were healthy and comfortable. This passion is what led to me realizing that working with animals was my dream.

Originally born in Florida, I’ve lived most of my life in Connecticut. I recently graduated the Vet Tech program at Middlesex Community College (MXCC) with honors as class valedictorian. While at school, I was also a proud member of Phi Theta Kappa honor society and Vice President of the MXCC student chapter of the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America.

I joined the Manchester Veterinary Clinic team in August of 2018 after a short externship as part of my Vet Tech education, and I’m so excited to add my skills & enthusiasm to the MVC team!

In my free time, I love playing with my two dogs-Athena, a 7 pound Miniature Pinscher and Lady Venus, a 70 pound German shepherd, along with my two mischievous kitty cats, Opal and Samuel. I’m passionate about dog training and have trained Athena to be highly responsive to conversational commands. My other hobbies include reading, collecting leather bound books, spending time in nature, baking muffins for my family and friends, and assembling furniture from Ikea.
