Amanda

My name is Amanda. I was born in Orange Park, Florida, but moved a few times throughout my life, spending a portion of my young adult life in Chesapeake, Virginia, while my dad served in the Navy. In 2005, my father retired from the Navy (after 20 years of service) and we moved back to Florida to be closer to family.
My passion for animals started at a young age, and I always knew I would eventually do something animal related. Throughout my college career, I’ve interned at the Central Florida Zoo and Back to Nature Wildlife Refuge where I’ve cultivated my passion to do conservation work, help animals, and educate the public. At home, I have one dog named Laney, and one cat named Snap (short for Snap Dragon).
I am currently pursuing a Biology degree at the University of Central Florida in the hopes of one day becoming a zoologist.
I started at Longwood Veterinary Clinic in January of 2015 as a Pet Care Specialist and I absolutely love what I do.
