Marissa Runnels has been in the career field of veterinary health and education since 2006, working from the clinic as a licensed veterinary technician to the classroom as a certified agriculture science teacher. With students being able receive both lecture and hands on skills, they have the advantage of gaining multiple certifications through a licensed professional.
Marissa's philosophy on kinesthetic instruction from industry professionals developed from students not understanding lessons based solely on reading and lecturing in the classroom alone. When combining fun activities, labs, and hands-on experiences, it became evident that students have a higher interest, higher retention rates, and a higher passion for learning.
The dedication to educate youth in becoming quality employees in the veterinary field allowed for opportunities to expand into the development of VETucation LLC.
