Licensed Technician Support Services

Virginia Jones-LVT and Owner

Originally from Ohio, I started my veterinary career in the kennels of Elliott Bay Animal Hospital, became licensed while working at Redwood Animal Hospital and saw the need for relief technicians while traveling with Dr. EB Okrasinski. Vet Tech Services has covered relief technician shifts from Bellingham to Olympia and across the sound to the islands. Besides hanging out with the dogs and chickens- reading, fishing and Polo are my passion.


Melissa has over 15 years experience in the veterinary field, and started working as an assistant in her senior year of high school.  She graduated from Pierce College in 2010. In the following years she worked in busy walk-in clinics, general practices, emergency medicine, lab animal research, and a dermatology clinic.  She enjoys the many challenges in the field and adapts to every situation with a good attitude.  She enjoys spending time with her husband traveling and being outdoors as much as possible. She has 2 adult cats named Newt and Kitty.


Ariel was born in Seattle. She graduated from Nova and has been an LMP since 2007. When not massaging her clients her kitties enjoy Ariel’s company.
