Debbie Hartsfield, Veterinary Technician
My name is Debbie Hartsfield and I have worked in the veterinary field since 1990. I actually started my career here at Westside Veterinary Clinic working for Drs Bert and Sally. My husband's career in the Army moved us to Texas in 1993. I continued to work at a veterinary clinic there and trained to be a veterinary technician. I find it very rewarding to work with pets and their families. My goal is to help pets live a good quality life for as long as they can. When we moved back to DeRidder I returned to work at Westside Veterinary Clinic. I live with my husband Kevin, three Dobermans, Manfred, Rommel, Keegan and two cats Rose and Buttercup. In my spare time I enjoy training and competing in agility trials with my Dobermans.
