Rob is a Floridia native who grew up in the Jacksonville area where he joined the United States Air Force upon graduating high school. He planned to see the world but after completing his pharmacy technician training, he was stationed at Macdill AFB in Tampa where he spent 6 years at the 56th Tactical Group Hospital. After separating from the USAF he worked for an information technology company for over 25 years. It is his passion for animals and the desire to work with them that led him to a career change and becoming a member of our team in 2014.
While he delivers some technical support for our office equipment, you will find Rob assisting Dr. Sheridan or one of our other technicians providing care for your pets. Rob finds it challenging and gratifying to work with patients in our rehabilitation program and is amazed by what a dog will do for treats.
When Rob is not working, he enjoys bicycling, kayaking or just about anything that involves the great outdoors and staying fit. He and his wife have one child at home, a 6 year old English Bulldog named Tank.
