EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH: November 2014

JT (Patient Care Team)
Nearly 3 years ago, Jen “JT” Tsutsui joined the patient Care team here at Encina Veterinary Hospital. At the time she was looking to expand her horizons and saw Encina as a fit for her.

As a veterinary technician on the patient care team, JT spends most of her time assisting and caring for our patients. Blood draws, sedations, radiographs, chemotherapy, assisting with managing the lab equipment and outpatient services are just a few of the things you can catch her doing day-to-day.

JT says she loves working here because “every day I get to do different things”. She attributes her success to liking the people she works with: “I enjoy working with the doctors and staff”.
She admits her greatest challenge here is also one of things she loves the most – “Keeping up with the busy days can be crazy”.

When she heard she had won this month’s EOM, she says she was “very ecstatic, I was surprised”.

Outside of Encina, you can catch her spending time with her family, especially her two little ones or on the softball fields.
“Let it Go” from the Frozen soundtrack is her go-to song to sing-a-long to.

Should she have the luxury of inviting whomever she wants to a dinner party she says, “All my grandparents who have passed away – a grandparent reunion!”
