Julie Antonellis — Veterinary Nurse

Leesburg, Virginia

Julie Antonellis, LVT, VTS(ECC) is a role model in our field. She has a passion for emergency critical care and shares this passion with her team and our community. In her decades of work as an LVT and Veterinary Technician Specialist in Emergency Critical Care, Julie is an advocate for her patients and skillfully cares for those who are critically ill. She has served as our technician and assistant supervisor for over 10 years.

Julie has provided many continuing education events to our referring community and is often requested by name. In 2018 she was appointed as the Northern Virginia Regional Director of Virginia Association of LVTs. Julie was also appointed by ACVECCT as a mentor for those seeking to obtain their Veterinary Technician Specialist credential in Emergency Critical Care. Later in 2018 she joined Penn Foster as an adjunct instructor for their veterinary technician program.

Her passion continues as she coordinates our 11 student technicians’ learning experience by organizing study groups, online article review, and observation hours with other veterinary specialties. She recently submitted a Critical Care Boot Camp proposal to immerse primary care veterinarian employees in critical care nursing training, the goal being to create opportunity to save lives outside of the ER/CC setting by educating our DVM care teams.

We are very proud of Julie and her accomplishments. She is making a mark on our industry and we are fortunate to have her as one of our own.
