Tera Rodgers

Tera joined Patton as a veterinary technician in September 2019. She graduated from Susquehannock High School and completed her veterinary technician program at York Technical Institute in 2018. Residing in Shrewsbury, Tera is “mom” to a menagerie of pets including Luigi her Bichon whom she rescued from a hoarding situation and credits for being her inspiration to join the veterinary field. She also has several other dogs, two cats, a rabbit named Dopey, Cleopatra the leopard gecko, Macchiato the hamster, Toby the guinea pig, Turq the parakeet and a yellow slider turtle named Mikey.

Tera states that her main hobby is “maintaining her zoo,” but she also enjoys making wreaths, cross stitch and other crafts. She enjoys spending her time off work hiking with her dogs or kayaking and fishing at her vacation home. On her bucket list is traveling cross country or to visiting someplace tropical like Hawaii one day.

Tera chose Patton because she, “wanted to work for an establishment that not only cared about their clients but also cared about their staff an education.” She also says, “I don’t live by quotes because what I live by is always changing.”

Veterinary medicine is constantly changing and Tera seems well adapted to the challenges of being a veterinary technician. We are proud to have her as part of our Patton team.
