Ashley Wirtz

Ashley WirtzEver since she can remember, Ashley has wanted to work in the animal-care field in order to better the lives of pets. She’s been serving in the veterinary field since high school and hasn’t looked back since!

Ashley is from Freeland, Michigan. After five years at the clinic she worked for during high school, she knew she wanted to pursue her animal-care education further. She attended Baker College of Port Huron, graduating with an Associate’s degree in applied science in 2015. Ashley had completed her externship here at the hospital, and also knew Becky from a previous job; signing on here at River Rock Animal Hospital simply made sense!

As a Licensed Veterinary Technician, Ashley particularly enjoys communicating with the practice’s clientele in order to provide the best possible care knowledge for their pets. She’s also fond of the clinic’s “vet chats,” which are put on every month in order to teach pet owners about various healthcare-related topics.

In her time away from work, Ashley enjoys horseback riding, showing horses, spending time in the great outdoors, and crafting. She and her fiancé, Jon, have two Boston terriers named Roxie and Marley who enjoy chasing squirrels and chipmunks whenever they can. They also have added two new kittens to their crew, Morey and Ella.20151121_102100 20151031_163831 DSC_6014 DSC_5834
