Elizabeth Snyder from Chattanooga State Community College
    Elizabeth Snyder is a 2015 graduate of the Chattanooga State Community College
Veterinary Technology program. She started out her career in 2004 as an assistant at East
Brainerd Animal Hospital, building her knowledge and skills for 8 years. Wanting to
expand on those skills, she joined the excellent team at the Regional Institute for
Veterinary Emergencies and Referrals. There she realized how little she actually knew
about veterinary medicine and finally made the decision to apply to the Chattanooga
State Veterinary Technology program in 2012. Unfortunately, she was unable to
continue with the program due to the diagnosis of lymphoma in the summer of 2013.
Nevertheless, with the awesome support of family, friends, coworkers, and the wonderful
doctors and nurses at Tennessee Oncology, she made it through six rounds of
chemotherapy. When the word “remission” was officially used to describe her condition,
she scrambled to have everything ready to take back her seat within the Veterinary
Technology program for the fall of 2014. She is very excited to take the VTNE and
become a Licensed Veterinary Medical Technician.
Matthew Chestnut from University of Tennessee at Martin
