PVM Welcomes New Instructional Technologist
Courtney Waxman, CVT, VTS (ECC) joined the PVM staff as instructional technologist for the Veterinary Nursing Distance Learning Program effective October 1. Starting in the spring, she will assume responsibility for ten courses and two mentorships.
Originally from Arizona, Courtney spent the past 13 years working in private emergency and critical care practice. She has a specialty credential as a veterinary technician specialist in emergency and critical care. Her areas of interest include CPR, mechanical ventilation, environmental hazards, one-on-one case management, critical care nursing, critical thinking, and technician education.
During the past two years, Courtney has been transitioning from private practice to education by sharing her knowledge through her involvement with the Veterinary Nurse Initiative and publishing her work in veterinary technology and nursing articles. She seeks to influence students to view their future work in the veterinary profession as a career, not just a job. “I encourage veterinary nurses to make this their career by pursuing professional growth and opportunities for advancement,” Courtney said. She became interested in joining the PVM family because she loves working in an environment of continuous teaching and learning.
Outside of work, Courtney enjoys traveling with her husband, reading, fitness, camping, and spoiling her two dogs. Courtney is looking forward to meeting everyone and getting involved. Stop by and introduce yourself to our newest instructional technologist. Courtney’s office is located in Lynn G171E.
