Veterinary Technicians

  • Sheridan Hird
    Hospital Manager, CVT

    Hi, I’m Sheridan! I have worked as a CVT in Colorado since 2015. My husband and I had our beautiful daughter in 2018 and moved to Central Park in October of 2019. Shortly after moving, we absolutely fell in love with the neighborhood. We have a dachshund, lab mix and three cats at home that were all, in some way or another, adopted or ended coming home with me from work. I’m currently working towards my bachelors at Metropolitan State University of Denver and hope to graduate in 2023. In my free time, I like to dabble in different art forms, read or go on an adventure with my busy toddler!

  • Akiko Tani

    Akiko Tani joined the Northfield Veterinary Hospital team in October 2018. She is originally from Japan and was working as a veterinary assistant before moving to Colorado in 2010 to further her veterinary medicine education, serving as a head surgery technician for several years before joining our team. She loves and has spent most of her time in the surgery field. She volunteers for different spay/neuter clinics all over the world each year to help save those animals and owners who need help. At home Akiko has a Bernese Mountain Dog named Goma (which means ‘sesame seed’ in Japanese). In her free time she loves to go hiking, snowboarding, cooking, traveling to other states or countries, and driving in the mountains with her husband and Goma.

  • Holly Swing

    Holly has known that she wanted to work with animals since she was a little girl. It goes back to one specific pet her grandma had. She was an older white Boxer named Sarah who had cancer and wasn't able to walk well on her own. At age 7, Holly was helping her to go outside and go potty by trying to lift her hind up with a blanket or towel and assist in walking her. She also loved snow, so Holly would go outside and get bowls full of snow and bring them to her while she lay under a blanket with her and cuddle her. Holly's whole family knew at that point, she was meant to work with animals.

    After only days of graduating high school in a small town called Big Piney, Wy, Holly left and moved to the
    Denver area to give herself more opportunities for furthering her education in animal science. She was able to begin working in the field as a Veterinary Assistant for Banfield Pet Hospital. She finally found Bel-Rea Institute of Animal Technology and was able to graduate and become a CVT. Holly has been in this field for 6 years and is still enjoying her journey.

    When not at work, Holly spends most of her time with her husband Kyle and their two dogs Chester and Boomer. They enjoy many outdoor activities such
    as hiking, camping and fishing. They also enjoy a simple lazy day indoors and watching movies.
