Gina has been working at Disney for eight years now. When she was 16, she was hired as part time kennel help. As the years progressed the Doctors and staff taught her more and more of the assisting/technician roles. She still work part time as she continues school, and is thankful to have the opportunity to pursue both.
Gina has always loved animals – she started training dogs when she was six and competing when she was seven. Training and showing is still an active hobby of hers, and she has three dogs that have competed with in conformation, agility, obedience and herding. She was also an active 4H member, raising small and large animals and competing at County and State Fair.
Both the dogs and 4H really introduced her to the responsibilities of owning and caring for an animal, but working at Disney has been a great opportunity to learn about animal health and medicine.
