Jason Randolph
Office Manager

Jason started with us in July of 1998 as a part-time Kennel Tech. Over the years, he has moved from Kennel Tech to Vet Tech to Office Manager. He is also the person responsible for the “technology” side of the business; website, online store, patient portal system, as well as the in-house IT/Computer guy. Although he doesn’t get to spend as much time “hands on” with the four legged friends any more, he is still helping them from behind the scenes.
