Tori Reichstadt, CVT
Tori earned her Certification as a Veterinary Technician from Argosy University in 2010. In 2020, she became a CLVS technician, after more than twelve years in the field. For Tori, assisting with small animal surgery is more than a job, it is a passion. A love for veterinary surgery is obvious if you look at the impressive experience she acquired over the prior decade. Tori’s exceptional resume includes several years assisting with specialty surgeries, a role as Surgery Coordinator at Inver Grove Heights Animal Hospital, and a Team Leader of Surgery/Anesthesia at Animal Emergency and Referral Center in Oakdale, Minnesota. Specific aspects of surgery that Tori enjoys include client education and follow-up, physical therapy, and ensuring that CLVS patients have the best recovery possible.
You don’t have to look far beyond her career to see further evidence of Tori’s dedication to animals. For her, they are a way of life. In her words, she has “way too many” of her own. Currently, she has three dogs, three cats, two horses, two goats, five chickens, and a rabbit. She enjoys fostering pets, and has a special place in her heart for basset hounds.
Tori grew up in Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota, but now lives in Western Wisconsin with her beautiful daughter, Mya, and her partner in crime, Nick. We are so lucky to have Tori as part of our excellent team!
