Over the 18 years in practice, Ken has discovered and refined his role as a veterinary technician by
promoting compassionate and progressive care for the patients and their family. He obtained his VTS
certification in emergency and critical care as well as small animal internal medicine and obtained his
master's degree in Veterinary Science. He is currently the Veterinary Education Simulation Laboratory
Manager at Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine, and is the Program Director for RECOVER
CPR Initiative. Ken has co-edited the Manual of Veterinary Transfusion Medicine and Blood Banking and
has published over 25 text chapters and articles in publications such as the Veterinary Team Brief and
Today’s Veterinary Nurse.
He speaks internationally and has given over 800 presentations. Ken works to encourage further recognition of the vital role of the veterinary nurses and technicians
through work with organizations such as the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America
co-chairing the Veterinary Nurse Initiative, and serving as a board member of the Veterinary Emergency
and Critical Care Society, the Academy of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Technicians, and the Veterinary Innovation Council.
He pursues these goals by showing the value of the profession’s perspective in veterinary medicine. Ken invites everyone to ask “Why?” to understand the “What” and “How” of our field, and to constantly
pursue new limits as veterinary professionals and individuals.
