Amber — Veterinary Technician
California native Amber Taylor recalls growing up with lots of animals all around her, including the injured ones she brought home for care. At age five, the local veterinarian let her “assist” him during a visit and she was hooked on being a vet herself.

She joined North Windham Animal Hospital this spring 2020 as a veterinary technician, assisting the doctors in medical and surgical procedures. She loves all aspects of her job and believes that the staff at North Windham Animal Hospital has an extraordinary passion for animals which, in turn, is demonstrated by the high quality of patient care.
