Candice Dystant

Registered Veterinary Technician
My journey began in 2016 when I decided that I wanted to be a part of something bigger, something challenging, and more importantly something rewarding. Animals have always been my life and I had many ranging from hedgehogs to horses and everything in between. Once starting my program at Maritime Business College, I worked hard every day and began to make changes to my life that will help me build my success. I began to work at a pet store, volunteering at a vet clinic, and eventually was hired on as a Veterinary Assistant. I was hired fresh out of tech school and practiced there for 6 months until I came to Clayton Park. I have learned so much from these memories and experiences, and strongly believe I am the technician I am today because of them.
