Megan

Reception

Hi! My name is Megan, and I am a receptionist here at Petworks Veterinary Hospital in Overland Park, KS. My love for animals started when I received my first dog at the age of 2. We were lucky that the 2 of us got to grow up together. I realized that I wanted to work with animals in 1st grade when an animal care technician from the Kansas City Zoo came to our school to give a presentation for career day. I was intrigued with all the different animals and I knew that I wanted to pursue a career in animal care.

I got my 1st job as a kennel technician when I was only 14. I loved working there so much that I stayed until I graduated from high school. After graduation I received my associated degree in Applied Science from Maple Woods Community College. I then received my Bachelors Degree from Kansas State university in biology and microbiology. I worked at several animal hospitals and then pursued a career in pharmaceutical research.

I decided to take a break from my career when I started a family so I could stay home with my kids. I raised my two kids alongside two Doberman pinchers. I stayed very busy raising my 4 “babies”. When the children were finally old enough to take care of themselves, I decided to return to work and join the Petworks family.

My fur family consists of 3 dogs – Jackson, Bella, and Charlie and one feline friend, Target. I am most at ease when I am curled up with all of them on the couch watching movies.
