Julie Schreiber, LVT
Since I was a small child, I always wanted to work with animals. However, as a young adult, I took a different career path. As my four
children grew older, I decided to go back to school and I pursued a career in veterinary medicine. I graduated from Alfred State in 2007 and have worked as a veterinary technician for 9 years. I love my job, but my true passion is rescue-from orphaned kittens to a three-legged chicken.

Her main interests lie in laboratory work and radiography, but she genuinely enjoys all aspects of being a technician. She can be frequently found singing to patients (and really, everyone else) or dancing her way around the hospital. When not at work, Ellen enjoys scary movies, going to concerts, karaoke, trivia, and spending time with her husband, Tyler, and her son, Harvey. Her personal critter collection consists of her terrier-mix, Darla, a Sphynx named Zuul, and a bearded dragon, Dobson.
