"I graduated from Bel-Rea in 2001. I was already working for Castlewood Canyon Equine when I finished school and loved every day!  It wasn't long before I moved my new bride and myself to Texas in September of 2002. Working for a ranch south of Stephenville as a RVT, I realized there were great options in the area.  I soon took a position at Equine Sports Medicine and Surgery in Weatherford where I spent the next 5 1/2 years of my career.  While there, I was taking care of all of the digital radiology equipment, which ended up opening the door to my next opportunity.  Late in 2008, I made the move to industry. Asteris Inc. was a new company providing digital image archiving services to veterinarians and needed someone to provide support to customers.  During that time I was able to travel and meet technicians from around the world!  From those interactions as well as from serving on the board for American Association of Equine Veterinary Technicians, I realized there is a very deep passion for what we do by all those in the industry. We have bright future and I look forward to what future VTAT boards accomplish for our great profession!" 
-Ky Carter, VTAT Board Advisor
