Tiana Schmidt

Hi! My name is Tiana. I have been at River Valley Veterinary Service since 1995 starting as a Kennel Attendant and now I am a part time Technician Assistant. I also have a passion for dog obedience and have become a Certified Obedience Instructor, which I really enjoy. I am working on my degree to become a Certified Veterinary Technician. I have a Labrador Retriever named Marley, a German Shephed named Silus and an Australian Shepherd name Rayne. I am very interested in fish and aquarium maintenance and have two aquariums at home. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with family and friends, scuba diving, fishing and other outdoor activities including training my dogs in obedience and agility.
