Jhoni Sorenson, C.V.T.Veterinary Oncology Technician
I’m an Army brat and have lived all over the United States and in Germany for a few years. I am the youngest of three kids with and older sister and brother. I’ve been around dogs my entire life and grew up loving two adorable labs named Maka, a chocolate lab and Zacharay, a yellow lab. All that moving made our family really close. We eventually settled in Colorado.
When people ask me why I chose the field I’m in, it’s because I have always been interested in medicine and in animals. I know it’s corny, but it was the best way to combine my two passions into one great profession! I graduated from Front Range Community College’s veterinary technician program in 2007 and worked in private practice for 11 years before joining the team at the Flint Animal Cancer Center in February 2018.
As an oncology nurse, I focus on providing compassionate care and advocating for each of my patients. A cancer diagnosis can be scary and emotional for families, but I am inspired by our clients who are willing to do whatever it takes to make sure their loved one has the best care and quality of life possible. Our patients are also amazing and despite their disease, always manage to bring a smile to my face. Through the day to day stress, it’s uplifting to work with an amazing team of professionals who share the common goal of providing every patient with outstanding care.
When I’m not at work, I spend my free time with my husband, awesome son, Maddox, and beautiful daughter, Deryn, and my fur baby, a golden retriever named Olive Oil. Together, we hike, camp, and enjoy Friday movie nights.
