Vet Assistant

Sydnee is currently a Vet Assistant, going to school at DCTC to become a Vet Tech. She is on track to graduate in 2023. “Working with animals has always been a dream of mine and now it has become a reality. As Walt Disney said, “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” My family has been coming to Burnsville Animal Clinic since we moved to Minnesota in 2003, so this has been a second home for me.

She started working at BAC in 2021. “The team here is amazing. Every day they help me learn something new that I will never be able to learn in a classroom. One day, I hope to be able to work with any animal, from the largest hippo to the smallest hamster. “

Sydnee currently has one cat, named Emmy

When I am not at work or doing school, I like to be outside. Camping, hanging out with family and friends, and hiking.
