Christina

Eva at Countryside Animal Hospital

My name is Christina I was born in Miami FL in 1992. I grew up in Pennsylvania but moved to Florida at age 10. I graduated from Riverdale high school in Fort Myers Florida in 2010 with a GPA of 3.4. I attended Edison state university for undergrad classes while figuring out what my calling was. I moved to lake city Florida in 2012, where I finally decided to attend city college in Gainesville to become a certified veterinary technician. I began this journey in 2016. After an internship at Countryside, I joined the team here as an assistant while still attending school. I graduated in March of 2018 and am now a full time technician here at Countryside. I have always had a passion for animals and will continue to care for God's little creatures.

Hunter

Hunter at Countryside Animal Hospital

Hunter Martin moved to Gainesville from Tysons Corner, Virginia. He has been a certified veterinary technician since 2007 but has worked in the veterinary field since 2004. He did not take the typical course in academia and instead traveled and studied at different Universities and Colleges across the country. He graduated from the Veterinary Technician Institute in Pittsburgh, PA. He studied architecture at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and Zoology at Miami University in Oxford, OH and studied at Santa Fe College teaching zoo in Gainesville, FL.

Hunter has worked and held positions in many hospital settings including emergency, exotic medicine, general practice, specialty clinics and shelters. Hunter is currently employed by Countryside Animal Hospital as well as City College, and he is a member of NAVTA and the ARAV. The areas of Anesthesia, analgesia management, and dentistry are topics and skills he has spent a lot of his continuing education focusing on. He hopes to continue to grow in this field and has never regretted getting started in veterinary medicine. Ultimately it is the need to care for animals that has kept his interest and has led him to want to share and teach his experiences with others.
