Joshua Goldsworth, CVT

Josh graduated from Front Range Community College Veterinary Technician program in May 2014. He went into animal health care because while he was working at the Longmont Humane Society he realized it was the only job he'd held where he could say, "I . . . love . . . this . . . job." It only took him until he was 30 to figure what he wanted to be when he grew up.
He lives with his brother and a tuxedo kitty named Trips who thinks she's queen of earth. When he's not thoroughly enjoying his job at St Michael's Companion Animal Hospital he enjoys reading, video games and television all while lounging on his couch because he fully admits he's kind of a lazy dude.
