AJ became a Veterinary Assistant to share his knowledge with pet owners. He loves being with his clients who are as passionate as he is about their pets. He is truly empathetic and understands the situations that owners experience because he has likely been through it as a pet owner himself. He enjoys helping people heal when it is time to say goodbye and to encourage new pet owners to take the best care of their new furry friends. AJ has three dogs, Basil (Border Collie/Blue Heeler Mix), Scribbles (Cairn Terrier/Mix), and Valentine (Long Haired Chihuahua). His pets are his children, his stress relief, and a major source of happiness! “I enjoy seeing the entire life span of a dog and building a relationship with their parents’ over the years. That partnership is something I truly treasure. It makes my day when I’m requested at a visit and get to connect with owners as they go through all the parts of their pet’s life, even when it is time to say goodbye.” AJ joined the Hendricks team in 2018.
“Do… or do not. There is no try.”
