Kristina (Tina) H. is an Emergency Technician Assistant. Tina’s first step into the animal care world was assisting animals in shelters and being a pet foster. She turned her passion into a career when she joined the VREC family in 2017. As an ER Assistant, Tina provides assistance to the Technicians any way that she can; running blood work, cleaning, stocking, and more. She says her favorite part of working at VREC is the hands-on learning from the family-like staff.
Tina is a proud fur-mom to dog Bronson (a foster failure) and cats Worm, Lily, and Lacy – the later two also being foster fails. She loves reading and being outdoors (especially hiking and rock climbing.) Tina has a colorful personality and she likes to show it by surprising the staff with new hair colors!
