Veterinary Technician, Director of Social Media, Apparel Coordinator
Trish grew up in Augusta, Kansas, where she was surrounded by horses at a young age. She has fond memories of watching Animal Planet programs that her Grandma recorded for her during her early years. She suspects that the shows deepened her desire to help pets professionally. Now, Trish gets to live her dream: she helps pets daily as a Veterinary Technician here at Hodes Veterinary Health Centerr!
Trish attended Kansas State University and graduated with her animal science business degree in May of 2017. She knew Drs. Brian and Jessica Hodes personally, and she knew that she had found the perfect fit when she heard about the practice they were opening. Trish has been here from the very beginning and loves to help all of the pets she possibly can on a daily basis. She particularly likes working on large animal patients, especially cattle, and she also loves the great variety that her work offers.
Much of Trish’s free time is spent showing her mare, Walla, in reining and ranch riding. Along with her husband, Kolby, Trish shares her life with many animal companions: an Australian Shepherd, Mercedes, who can often be seen right here at the clinic; a pair of wire-haired Pointing Griffons named Roxie and Rover; Waylon the mustang; and two Quarter Horses, Willie and the aforementioned Walla. Six barn cats round out the animal portion of the family: Mama, Croc, Scrap, Ocho, Oreo, and Cheney.
