Veterinary Technician
rita hensley

Raised in Fort Lauderdale, Rita joined the team of Animal Wellness Clinic of Tamarac in June 2015. After graduating high school, she served in the Army and continued to serve as a federal contractor supporting the government for 11 years. In 2013, she moved from Washington, DC to South Florida to be closer to her family. Rita always has had a passion for caring for animals but never dared to dream that she could to make her passion a new career. But things happen for a reason. Her GI bill paid for her school. She graduated from Sanford Brown College with a Veterinary Technology degree and started her career path. Rita is married to a wonderful husband Brandon, whom she met in the military. They have a son Noah and adorable rescued dog named Lyla. Rita believes that if you do something you love, you won’t work a day of your life. Rita loves going to the beach (especially to the Keys), family outings, and playing with her dogs.
