Samantha, CVT


Samantha Porrazzo joined our team in May 2019. As our Technician Supervisor, she has been a valuable asset to us because she comes with many years of experience. She graduated from Central Carolina Community College with her Associate of Applied Science in Veterinary Technology and has a plethora of knowledge in surgery, anesthesia, emergency care, hospitalization, and general wellness. In addition to helping animals at our practice, Samantha also works tirelessly coaching, scheduling, and directing our technical staff to be the absolute best they can be. She is truly dedicated to this field, and it shines through her passion, and work ethic every day. She has a great personality, and she keeps our staff laughing in the back, while still making sure that you and your pet are extremely cared for.

When she’s not working, Sam enjoys spending time with her wife Ashley, eating sushi, going to the beach, spending time with her family, and her two fur babies, a dachshund named Reynolds, and her black Lab mix Sophie.

She loves helping others to the best of her ability and will devote her time at work to making you and your pets’ experience positive and fun.
