Holly Daugherty is a practice manager who works to help the Pet Care Veterinary Hospital team achieve their purpose: caring for our clients and patients through compassionate care.
Holly believes in nurturing the personal and professional development of every member of the pet care team through encouraging lifelong learning, fear-free practices, mutual respect, teamwork, and integrity.
Holly joined the pet care team in 2011 after obtaining her degree in Veterinary Technology at Blue Ridge Community College in 2010. In her time at pet care working as a Licensed Veterinary Technician, she has attended well-managed practice meetings, completed the People First leadership certification, and obtained hundreds of continuing education hours in exotics medicine, anesthesia, pain control, communication, and veterinary practice management.
Working as an LVT with demonstrated leadership skills, it wasn’t long before she decided to return to school to expand her knowledge. Holly obtained her Certified Veterinary Practice Manager for CVPM credentials in January 2021 and is working towards a Bachelor of Business Administration form Old Dominion University.
When Holly is not at Pet Care, she can be found spending time with her family – hiking, kayaking, exploring, cooking, and baking. She has a 12-year-old Pittie named Blink, a 10-year-old kitty named Ariat, and a juvenile leopard gecko fondly named Mightyclaws Alan by her human children. Holly’s favorite animal is the giraffe because they are long and lanky, awkward yet graceful-kind of like her.
