Carol Bush

Veterinary Technician

Carol is married with three children and is a native to the great state of Michigan. She has had a love for animals that started at an early age and materialized into an accumulation of pets from dogs to rabbits to canaries. This love motivated her to pursue a degree in Biology from Calvin College in Grand Rapids. It was here that she met and married her college sweetheart, Todd. Carol, along with her husband and three daughters have lived throughout the state of Michigan, starting as far south as Kalamazoo and inching further north until arriving in Ludington in the fall of 2014. It was shortly after arriving in Ludington that Carol began working at VMC.

Carol's love for the sciences and animals has definitely been passed down to each of her daughters. Her oldest has graduated from Lake Superior State University with a degree in Fisheries and Wildlife Management and is currently working on her Masters at Grand Valley State University in the field of Biology. Her middle daughter, also with a love for science, is finishing up a degree in Mechanical Engineering at Calvin University. Finally, her youngest is pursuing a path that will hopefully lead to a future degree in Veterinary Medicine.
