Nikki Machu (with Lincoln) - RVT/Office Manager


I've worked at Dessau Vet Clinic since March of 2002. I graduated from  MCC in Waco, TX in 2009 and became a registered Vet Tech. I have started going back to school to achieve my Masters in Accounting as well. I love my job, the people I work with and I especially enjoy our clients, their pets, and the never-ending puzzle that veterinary medicine presents. I have 3 dogs, 7 cats, and some reptiles, as well as 2 young daughters. In my spare time I enjoy any activities that involve my two and four legged kids!
