Tasha McNerney, BS, CVT, CVPP, VTS (anesthesia and analgesia)
Tasha McNerney, BS, CVT, VTS (anesthesia and analgesia), is host of the Firstline series, "Coffee on the Couch." Sick of being asked, "When are you going to be a veterinarian?" and "Why aren't you a real nurse?" Tasha set out to interview veterinary professionals to elevate the profession's perspective on veterinary technicians and identify career paths for technicians. Tasha is a member of the IVAPM. She works as a technician at Rau Animal Hospital in Glenside, Pennsylvania.
In this java-less episode, Kara Burns talks religion and politics, the presidential debates and—just kidding! She talks about the career paths for technicians as nutrition advocates and challenges Tasha to a jalapeño-eating contest (kidding again!). We crack ourselves up sometimes.
