BELLEVUE, Wash., Oct. 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Washington State Veterinary Medical Association awarded its 2007 Distinguished Veterinary Staff Award to Karen Henricksen, a licensed veterinary technician.
Henricksen received the award in recognition of her dedication and her skill and knowledge as a LVT. Henricksen is a strong advocate for her animal patients' care and well-being and is always mindful of the communication needed with the pets' owners.
Henricksen never leaves her clinic for the day without making sure that each patient's owner has been contacted so they fully understand the care and prognosis of their pet. Henricksen also volunteers in her community for Wolf Haven, 4-H, and Future Farmers of America.
Henricksen received her award on September 29, during the WSVMA's annual banquet and award ceremony in Yakima.
